As far as Tiger Woods goes: We all make mistakes. We all have skeletons in our closets. I say this because I am not perfect and I have no right to throw stones. The troubles Tiger is having just brings to light a larger issue that no one talks enough about. When you cheat on your spouse, you cheat on your children. he pain in this world felt by so many children of divorce or conflict over infidelity is immeasurable and so damaging. Most people will still love Tiger, and most people will still respect Tiger, but there is no doubt that if he cheated, he has hurt not only himself but his wife and children, and this happens too often in our society. I pray for his family and for his wife and children. All chidren just want their parents to love each other. All children just want a happy home. I do not understand why so many people can put their children out of their minds when they engage in infedelity.I am sure Tiger, and all who cheat, love their children. But, for some reason they become idiots all of the sudden. And I don't understand why the public in general does not hold this act of betrayal with more disdain. This hurts our children, our society, our country. But nobody wants to talk about it, and the public continues to put men who do this on a pedestal and easily forgive, especially if they can hit a ball, or be a great athlete. But if a woman does it, she is branded VERY differently. Both are just as wrong, but there is a double standard. But, the main point is the pain so many people suffer, even into adulthood over this. We have all sinned and I for one can not throw stones. But I felt compelled to write this comment because I am a child of divorce and I know how much it hurts.
Maybe because our society is so willing to forgive, it influences people when they are tempted in this way. Maybe as a society we should not be so forgiving of this betrayal. Maybe we shouldn't offer such great respect to people who cheat.
