Tiger Woods and Elin Nordegren issued a joint statement through
their attorneys on Monday regarding their divorce:
"We are sad that our marriage is over and we wish each other
the very best for the future. While we are no longer married, we
are the parents of two wonderful children and their happiness has
been, and will always be, of paramount importance to both of us.
Once we came to the decision that our marriage was at an end, the
primary focus of our amicable discussions has been to ensure their
future well-being. The weeks and months ahead will not be easy for
them as we adjust to a new family situation, which is why our
privacy must be a principal concern."
