Tiger Woods and his wife Elin will share joint custody of their children
in a divorce.
The Number One golfer hurt his back and pulled out of his latest tournament Sunday, while beautiful Elin spent the afternoon without him, with their children, for Mother’s Day.
In the past month, they have spent only a few days together and both have seen divorce lawyers.
And one source familiar with the situation tells RadarOnline.com that the couple will share joint custody of the children if the divorce goes through.
“They have not been getting along as a married couple but there has been no conflict over the children,” the source told RadarOnline.com. “They both want what’s best for the kids.
“This isn’t going to get ugly. They’ve both made sure of that.”
It’s one of the few bright spots in Tiger’s relationship with Elin. They still do not live together, with Elin staying in a rented house about a mile from the home they once shared near Orlando, Florida.
At one point the relationship warmed, but Tiger’s return to golf upset Elin, the source said. She felt he returned too soon and wasn’t committed to building a new relationship with her.
She has taken many trips without him since then, including a recent one to Sweden with the children. She also went to Arizona for a week by herself, leaving the children with Tiger.
“When they are both home, they pass the kids back and forth without any arguing,” the source said. “They’ve both done everything they can to make it as easy as possible on the children.
“The kids are close to both of them and neither Tiger nor Elin wants a battle.
“The marriage doesn’t look like it’s going to make it but at least there’s not going to be a custody battle.”
