Tiger Woods marriage is "definitely not over," a source close to the situation tells RadarOnline.com exclusively.
And that's because the golfer realized he was about to lose everything when his wife Elin threatened to take their children away from him and go back to Sweden.
"Elin could have filed for divorce already but she hasn't," ,the source added. "Of course, she has not said definitively that she's staying with Tiger, but what's happening now is crucially important."
What's happening now is Tiger is in sex addiction rehab at Gentle Path in Hattiesburg, Mississippi.
And while Elin is no longer wearing her wedding ring, she also canceled plans to file divorce papers. Tiger begged her not to end the marriage and told her he would do anything to make things work.
Tiger's desperate reconciliation attempt by going to rehab was sparked by the threat of Elin taking their two young children and moving back to Sweden. The thought of losing everything went a long way to convincing Tiger to go to rehab.
After Tiger's affair with Rachel Uchitel was exposed by the National Enquirer, he was linked to more than 14 women and his secret cheating life exposed. His marriage exploded and he drove into a tree in the early morning hours after Thanksgiving.
Elin has not visited Tiger yet in rehab but she also has not filed divorce papers. The National Enquirer says Tiger's program calls for her to spend seven full days of counseling with him in the rehab facility.
