There's no question this must be excruciatingly difficult on the entire family.

Tiger Woods tells all!
The professional golfer decided to reflect on his failed former flames in a new interview with Time. The 39-year-old even opened up quite a bit about his ex-wife, Elin Nordegren.
For those of your who don't remember, the athlete confessed that he had cheated on the Swedish beauty back in 2009.
But now, it seems as though the blonde babe has put the past behind her. The famous father revealed they've let go of the drama for their kids' sake… and are even besties now!
"In hindsight, it's not how I would change 2009 and how it all came about. It would be having a more open, honest relationship with my ex-wife. Having the relationship that I have now with her is fantastic. She's one of my best friends. We're able to pick up the phone, and we talk to each other all the time. We both know that the most important things in our lives are our kids. I wish I would have known that back then."
"When it comes down to it, right down to it, it's just having a more open, honest relationship with my ex-wife when we were married. Our frustrations would have come out if we had talked about it and been open and honest with each other. Which we are now, and it's absolutely fantastic."
But, it seems as though they've been able to bond over raising their children. He explained:
"We work through it with the kids, the parenting program. She is one of my best friends now, and it's all because of my kids. We've worked so hard, and I've shown her how much I love them. We've worked so hard at co-parenting, to make sure that their lives are fantastic."
In fact, the California native is actually super serious about being a responsible father.
Even though his tiny tots are still pretty young, Tiger's trying to be open with them about the divorce drama, because he wants to eventually show them that he can own up to his controversial decisions:
"I've taken the initiative with the kids, and told them up front, 'Guys, the reason why we're not in the same house, why we don't live under the same roof, Mommy and Daddy, is because Daddy made some mistakes.' I just want them to understand before they get to Internet age and they log on to something or have their friends tell them something. I want it to come from me so that when they come of age, I'll just tell them the real story…. I was to blame, and so I'm taking initiative with the kids. I'd rather have it come from me, as the source. And I can tell them absolutely everything, so they hear it from me."
"Well, with Lindsey, what was hard is we never had time together. We're texting each other. It was a great relationship, but it was so hard, when I'm training to do my sport, it takes umpteen hours to do, and I can't travel, except to my tournaments, because I'm here dedicated to my two kids. Meanwhile, most of her summer is spent in South America, at training camps in Chile and Argentina, and then you've got her season, which is mostly in Europe. And I can't travel because I have the kids—my off weeks I'm devoted to my kids—and I have to be here."
He reflected that the union was good, but it simply had to end:
"It's a relationship that was fantastic, but it just can't work on that level. It just could not work. It was doing an injustice to both of us."
Well, we're glad that Tiger and at least one of his exes are on such good terms! What do U think about all this, Perezcious readers?
