Most people think that the lives of professional athletes are something to be envied, complete with great wealth, worldwide fame and, of course, glory on the court, diamond, field, course or rink.
While it’s true that being a professional athlete does afford certain advantages, it’s important for people to understand that this wealth, fame and glory is the product of hard work and tremendous personal sacrifice.
Indeed, the majority of professional athletes find themselves living under a microscope, such that anything they say or do either on- or off-the-field will be analyzed in the most painstaking detail.
Needless to say, this reality can present very real concerns when personal matters like a separation or divorce arise. That’s because the words or actions of a jilted spouse can quickly spark a media circus that interferes with a professional athlete’s demanding schedule, potentially compromising their training or even their play.
