Population Statistic: Read. React. Repeat.

Now that Tiger Woods has gone public with his extramarital infidelities, wife Elin is not looking for a divorce. Instead, she’s seeking a revised prenuptial agreement that, for her, means more money and less time put in:

The initial prenup was worth $20 million after 10 years of marriage. However, the Chicago Sun-Times’ Bill Zwecker has reported that Elin Woods will receive an immediate payment “into an account she alone controls,” and that the 10-year timeframe — which began when they married in 2004 — has been shortened and the value increased “substantially.”

The Daily Beast quotes “a lawyer familiar with the couple’s negotiations” in reporting that the term of the prenup has been shortened to seven years, and that a series of staggered payments could increase the total value to $75 million.

So, let me get this straight: Tiger has to pay his wife in order for her to continuing being his wife — and then, for only for a limited time. In what’s presumably, if not a wholly-loveless marriage, then one that’s filled with less love than before.

I’m not seeing how a divorce wouldn’t be preferable. Even if the dollar amount ramps up considerably (I hear Tiger would be out some $300 million), at least he’s entirely free and clear to go his own way afterward. The pre-nup situation seems like paying for prolonged punishment. Cut bait and run, I say.
