They were engaged two years later and were married between 2004 and 2010. The couple also has two children together. The marriage fell apart when Elin found out about Tiger’s infidelity. Elin never let her difficult romantic life get her down, and in 2014, she graduated from Rollins College in Florida with a degree in psychology. She also received the Outstanding Senior award. She also walked away with a reported $100 million divorce settlement. A settlement that large must have made the whole infidelity issue sting a little less.
