The devastation of infidelity.

In a People's magazine story, Elin Nordgren, Tiger Wood's now ex-wife, discusses how she's "been through hell" as a result of Tiger's infidelities.
"I've been through hell," Nordegren said in an interview with People magazine released Wednesday, two days after she and Woods were officially divorced. "It's hard to think you have this life, and then all of a sudden — was it a lie? You're struggling because it wasn't real. But I survived. It was hard, but it didn't kill me."
I've been told by psychologist who's counseled thousands of people that women who experienced rape and infidelity found the infidelity more damaging. I found that hard to believe but he said multiple women had told him that.

Unfortunately, our culture and society have so devalued marriage and devolved to doing whatever makes you "happy" that we've opened the door wide to unilateral divorce and infidelity. As a result there are a lot of walking wounded in our midst.
