    Personal life

    How did she earn a living? In the early stages of her life, she was very poor and hence she and her sister Josefin used to join different superstores as a cashier with the help of which they could earn and pay their school fees. Later she joined modeling and due to her skills, beauty and passion to earn she got her picture printed on the cover of a famous magazine named Cafe Sports magazine. As told by the sources she also used to be a nanny.

    How did she get married? During those days she joined a clothing store in order to earn her living. While working there she happened to meet the wife of a famous golfer Jesper Parnevik. Later they hired her to be the nanny of their children. She accepted the job but due to this job she had to leave Sweden and shift to U.S.A. to earn she had to do it.

    Parnevik then became a bridge between them and during the 2001 World Open Championship introduced Elin to Woods. The news of their being engaged was official when Woods proposed to her at the Shamwari Game Reserve. Both of them got married in 2004 but the marriage was not a successful one and both got separated from each other.

    What was the reason behind their divorce? Actually, what happened was that Woods was caught cheating on his wife and he also accepted it on media. Actually, he did not love her he loved her beauty. Even though Elin was not interested in him but still it did not matter to him. He used to force Parnevik to introduce himself to Nordegren before marriage. Even Parnevik felt ashamed of himself and admitted that it was his mistake that he could not read the mentality of Woods. On the 23rd of August 2010, the couple finally decided to separate from each other and Woods gave the divorce to Nordegren.
