Should Elin Literally Stand Behind Her Man Tomorrow?

Do you think Elin should stand by her man when he faces the press for the first time tomorrow?

Tiger Woods will speak for the first time at a press conference Feb. 18 and apparently will apologize for his infidelities and discuss his golfing future. So should his wife Elin Nordegren go with him and have his back — Silda Spitzer-style? Does it make her look weak? HollywoodLife.com‘s Editor-in-Chief Bonnie Fuller believes that if Elin attends the press conference it will set a terrible example for women everywhere. “If you go you’ll look like a doormat to the women of the world,” says Bonnie. “You’ll lose all respect from women who could view you as a role model.”

A source close to Tiger confesses to PopEater’s Rob Shuter that Elin isn’t planning on going this Friday … but that could change. “It’s hard enough for her to try and make this marriage work,” says the insider. “The last thing she wants to do right now is stand next to him in front of the world’s press.” Nevertheless, Tiger must be an awfully convincing man — he’s already persuaded her to drop her divorce proceedings for now and could make a convincing case for her to appear tomorrow. It would certainly help him with his advertising sponsors — after all, if Elin stands behind him, they may feel more comfortable doing so too.

Elin should not support Tiger during his mea culpa, agrees relationship expert Dr.  Carole Lieberman.”Elin will or should be humiliated by the lies and rationalizations that Tiger will give out,” she says. “She will make herself look pathetic or a laughingstock by seeming to support him and believe his lies.”

Bonnie believes that Elin’s presence will only hurt her in the long run. “Elin, don’t you dare go to Tiger’s press conference,” says Bonnie. “It will be sheer torture for you to suffer even more public humiliation. Your first appearance with him should be when he plays his first match.”

Do you think Elin should go to the press conference? Tell us what you think!

This is white supremacy at its worst. White supremacists simply can’t stand that the greatest golfer of all time is not only brown-skinned but mixed blooded — so they see this is a golden opportunity to ruin him … Leave Tiger alone!

There is nothing like an ideal world or marriage.they all suffer some challenges.It is only a man from out of space that should think that people should not make mistakes.Marriages survive more in Africa becouse they always give a second chance for the offenders.We are merely human afterall.So please encourage this couple to stay together at least for the sake of their children.

You all are crazy!!! Tiger is human,and humans make mistakes. Elin whether anyone wants to admit it or not,the report that has stated that she commited domestic violence you all know is true.Two wrongs don’t make a right but the only true and right opinion is the two live through and work this out without if any way posible any outside help.You women and men with the advise of break up are jealous of something good. Most of you women that think that way must be just like the dumb bimbos that trapped him. ELIN please don’t listen to them, they’re just laying in wait.

She shouldn’t, it only show how any affair(s) is acceptable… and it’s not. Leave him, if he wants you… he’ll come crawling back… but with his history… he doesn’t know family… he only knows fantasy! You’re beautiful and can do a lot better.

The first thing Tiger should say at his press conference is that over the last 2 plus months the public has found out that the real tiger in the family is Elin. She has been real classy in the way she has gone about her life.

While I’am sure Elin is not sure what she wants it seem to me it’s not to end the marriage or relationship now. And if she is going to give the marriage an honest chance why not stand by her man

i have been a fan of tiger until this being a man i understand the difficulties it can be just looking at woman in what they wear sometimes i am not condoning what he did and understand it wasnt just once however he made a commitment to her and she made one to him the sanctity of marriage is the most important. elin is hurt by what tiger did and thow she may never forget, she still needs to forgive and then work out what needs to be done next.tiger shame on you for this you can recover from this if you truly want to..elin my prayer is that you make the right choice for you..if she shows on friday it will be making the statement that what she said when she got married means something to her its up to tiger to show her the same in return .keep your thing in your pants

if i was Elin,I certanly would not listen to Tiger.I would not subject myself or my kids by going out in public to make the public think we are getting back together. for what he did Elin should not take him back.No wife would. He not only hurt himself,but everyone that loved him.

she is an idiot for taking him back.

it seems having affairs is acceptable to us these days. what is wrong with us?
people should be shunned and shamed privately and publicly for adultery.

This situation is WAY different than say the Rihanna/Chris Brown thing. If Rihanna went back to Chris Brown, she was setting a TERRIBLE example to her fans and young girls around the world. I just don’t consider Elin to be a role model. Tiger? Yes, but not Elin. If it were me, I’m with getbacktowork, I’d “run for the door dancing a jig with his money,” but she’s gotta do what she’s gotta do.

i think you’re going a little overboard here bonnie. i think he is a douche, and i’d run for the door dancing a jig with his money. but, if elin hasn’t given up hope for her marriage, and thinks that standing behind him (which doesn’t mean she’s ultimately going to stick with him) is an appropriate personal step for herself to figure out if she can stomach making this marriage work, that’s her decision. i doubt elin reads this site, but i think it’s irresponsible to give out this advice and try to guilt her into doing anything other than what feels right to her. surely, you are not married if this is your take.
