The Internet buzz is that the Tiger Woods photos in rehab are a fake. Maybe, maybe not. But what is real is the fact that Tiger Woods has a marriage in crisis and it appears that he is getting the help he needs.
Sex addiction is controversial even in the medical community, and it seriously affects an individual’s ability to make committed attachments. There is a disconnect in which the sex is simply the alcohol, the cocaine, the heroin.

Also, and what can be most important, is the toll that this has on one’s marriage and family. And in a very real way, it may have dramatically impaired Tiger Woods ability to do what he does best — play golf.
Fake photos, real crisis:
While the photos may be fake, the liklihood of Tiger Woods in rehab in Mississippi seems quite real given the increased police security and the clinic security to discourage photographers. However, this can be a ploy to divert attention from another sex clinic in the nation. It is reminiscent of a very old Murphy Brown episode in which her look-alike went in one entrace to a hospital supposedly trying to dodge reporters while she went in another.
We can only hope for the sake of family that both Tiger and Elin have a desire to reconcile and work to overcome the mounting porblems in proportion to the public’s desire to know “the truth.” Even with treatment, overcoming infidelity takes serious work and forgiveness.Nonetheless, marriages can be saved.Mending a Marriage after Infidelity Takes Forgiveness
