Tiger Woods said to pay his wife millions to stick by him

Count me among those who do not think highly of people who have extramarital affairs. The "good news" is that society has a way of making people pay for such transgressions, especially if you're a guy who makes a hefty living hitting little white balls around grassy landscapes. In the case of Tiger Woods, whose middle-of-the-night car accident last week brought to light allegations that the golfer was involved in an affair, the payment is pretty steep.

Not only has Woods issued a public apology on his website, but the The Daily Beast reports that he will pay his wife, Elin Nordegren, $5 million upfront and another $55 million to persuade her to stay in their marriage for another 24 months.
