Tiger Woods Makes A Statement:
I have let my family down and I regret those transgressions with all of my heart. I have not been true to my values and the behavior my family deserves. I am not without faults and I am far short of perfect. I am dealing with my behavior and personal failings behind closed doors with my family. Those feelings should be shared by us alone.
Although I am a well-known person and have made my career as a professional athlete, I have been dismayed to realize the full extent of what tabloid scrutiny really means. For the last week, my family and I have been hounded to expose intimate details of our personal lives. The stories in particular that physical violence played any role in the car accident were utterly false and malicious. Elin has always done more to support our family and shown more grace than anyone could possibly expect.
But no matter how intense curiosity about public figures can be, there is an important and deep principle at stake which is the right to some simple, human measure of privacy. I realize there are some who don’t share my view on that. But for me, the virtue of privacy is one that must be protected in matters that are intimate and within one’s own family. Personal sins should not require press releases and problems within a family shouldn’t have to mean public confessions.
Whatever regrets I have about letting my family down have been shared with and felt by us alone. I have given this a lot of reflection and thought and I believe that there is a point at which I must stick to that principle even though it’s difficult.
I will strive to be a better person and the husband and father that my family deserves. For all of those who have supported me over the years, I offer my profound apology.
I personally think this is all that should have been expected of Tiger to say... fact of the matter is... it is a private issue. I was reading alot of tweets and various comments about this situation and men cheating in general. Some feel when your dealing with a man of that magnitude it should be expected. My thing is, to all this rich/famous men... don't you see you have much more to lose than the average man??? As soon as your caught now you want to do EVERYTHING to keep your wife because if not, she is going to take HALF of all you have... as she should, if she choses to leave. I guess its a power thing, being rich/famous maybe has people feel they can get away with it easier. Hmmm... I don't know. Either way, all I know is people in general whether rich and famous or not need to have more respect for marriage. Shout out to all my married couples that may go through some rough times but communicate and stick it out. Remember your marriage is yours... no one elses. Focus on eachother.
