(Newser) – To escape the nonstop flood of news about his infidelities, Tiger Woods and Elin Nordegren are planning to escape to her native Sweden and consider their next move. "They want to leave as soon as possible," a friend of the golf legend's spurned wife tells ABC News. And reports that divorce is off the table may be premature, the source adds.

Nordegren is waiting for Woods' galpals to stop coming out of the woodwork before deciding anything about the marriage. "She's going to take her sweet time," says the friend. "She wants all the dirty laundry to be out on the table before she signs anything." Meanwhile, Woods is scheduled to serve as the best man in his best friend's wedding this weekend but it's not clear whether he'll show, CBS News reports. His toast would probably be a doozy, though.
