“Tiger is trying to put his marriage back together, trying to prove to Elin that he’s changed,” the source said. “She hasn’t committed to staying in the marriage but the fact that she has been participating in his therapy and went away with him is a big step toward the two of them staying married.”

Elin is still not wearing her wedding ring but has told her divorce attorney to not file papers. She and Tiger do not have a physical relationship and when in Orlando live in separate houses, has learned.

“They had dinner together several nights in a row before the trip,” the source said. “But it wasn’t entirely smooth.”

Elin has asserted her independence, going out on the town without Tiger, refusing to move back in with him and telling him that she has not made up her mind about staying married, according to the source.

And while the trip together appears to be a big breakthrough, it’s going to be a long, long time before Elin can forgive Tiger.

“Everyone who has been around them knows this marriage is extremely damaged but thinks they will stay married for now,” the source told

Elin, according to the source, is not expected to move back in with Tiger when she returns home.
