Robert Wright believes Tiger Woods' sexual behavior represents a threat to the moral sanction that is vital to the institution of monogamous marriage. He writes that "the institution that seems to be, on average, the least bad means of rearing children is an institution that doesn’t naturally sustain itself in the absence of moral sanction -- positive sanction for fidelity, negative sanction for infidelity." The quick passage of Woods' scandal may have the effect of lessening that sanction and normalizing his behavior in the public eye, and ultimately causing more infidelity.
