Tiger Woods is starting over, or is he?

More often than not, a divorce requires one to re-group and to start fresh. Usually, starting over is on a scaled down, reduced standard of living. No so with Tiger Woods.

In spite of the massive financial settlement he recently paid to his wife Elin Nordegren, which was reported to be in excess of $100million, he appears to have come out of his divorce unscathed, at least as to his finances.

South Florida Boca Raton attorney Alan R. Burton knows how a divorce can negatively impact the lives of individuals, especially when they were involved in long term marriages. It is generally more difficult for a family to maintain the same standard of living, when living apart, then when they were living together.

Tiger Woods has apparently been unaffected by this principle. He is nearing completion of his $50million mansion, with its own sports facilities, a golf course, what else?

Tiger Woods has become one of the wealthiest sportsmen of all time, earning in excess of $105million last year alone, as reported by Forbes magazine.

Although he apparently has unlimited wealth, that wealth alone did not bring him happiness in his marriage. The Tiger Woods saga adequately demonstrates the old adage that “money can’t buy happiness”.
