I’ve been asked repeatedly in the last few days, “Why would a man who has everything—A beautiful wife, loving family, a fortune estimated at $1 billion—endanger it all to have affairs with women that don’t hold a candle to his wife? What’s going on here?”
Golfer Tiger Woods, engulfed in media speculation over his private life after a car accident in the middle of the night, apologized on Wednesday for "transgressions" in a statement that apparently addressed allegations he had extra-marital relationships.
Woods, the world's number one golfer and a married father of two young children, said in a statement published on his website that he had "not been true to my values and the behavior my family deserves," without directly addressing the allegations of infidelity.
"I have let my family down and I regret those transgressions with all of my heart," Woods said.

, engulfed in media speculation over hisprivate life after a car accident in the middle of the night,apologized on Wednesday for "transgressions" in a statement thatapparently addressed allegations he had extra-maritalrelationships.Woods, the world's number one golfer and a married father of twoyoung children, said in a statement published on his website thathe had "not been true to my values and the behavior my familydeserves," without directly addressing the allegations of infidelity."I have let my family down and I regret those transgressions withall of my heart," Woods said. Woods said his Swedish wife ElinNordegren "has always done more to support our family andshown more grace than anyone could possible expect.""I am not without faults and I am far short of perfect. I am dealingwith my behavior and personal failings behind closed doors withmy family. Those feelings should be shared by us alone," Woodssaid in his statement.For many, why men do dumb things is self evident. “Because menare dumb beasts and all they want is sex,” they say. For others,they wonder what all the uproar is about. “You can’t expect a manto have sex with only one woman. It’s not natural. What’s theproblem if he gets a little on the side?”
 
An evolutionary psychologist like myself looks at things through awider set of lenses. Let’s start by taking a look at what it meansto be a man.1. What Does It Mean to Be Male?Nothing is closer to our sense of self than our sense of “maleness”and “femaleness.” When our babies first emerge from the wombthe mother (and increasingly the father who is in the deliveryroom) hears “congratulations, it’s a boy,” or “it’s a girl.” Many“parents to be” will say that they would be happy with either a boyor a girl, but none can ignore the fact that boys and girls are notalike.Although we all recognize the differences, there is a great deal of controversy about what differences exist, whether they areinherent or a product of culture, and what these differences mean.In the past differences have often been used to restrict thefreedom and opportunities of one group, most often women.Even the consummate scientist, Charles Darwin, believed thatmen were naturally smarter than women.This superior male intelligence, he proposed, arose because of the unique tasks that men practiced. It was the men that fought towin mates, made tools to hunt, cooperated with other men, andfought wild animals to “bring home the mammoth.” He believedthat the need of our male ancestors to compete with each other,created a superior level of intelligence. He assumed anaggressive, intelligent Adam and a gentle, nurturing Eve. Thisimage conformed to what Darwin saw everywhere around him inVictorian England.This sexist view of gender differences was bitterly attacked after World War I. Margaret Mead was among the intellectual leadersof the period who believed that differences were not built in, butwere a product of the particular culture in which a person lived.As Mead wrote in 1935, “We may say that many if not all of thepersonality traits which we have called masculine and feminineare as lightly linked to sex as are the clothing, the manners and
