When it rains, it pours. Tim Donaghy, the NBA referee who is accused of betting on games in which he refereed, is now facing a divorce. He lost his job, may potentially be thrown in jail, and is now going through a divorce which may cost him hundreds of thousands of dollars, not to mention time away from his children. I'm not sure whether he is guilty of the crimes that he is accused of, but one thing is for sure, when a person's professional life is in the toilet, this has a profound effect on a person's marriage. Whether the professional mishaps are a result of a company downsizing, or it is a result of person's conscious actions, professional stress has a way of spilling over into a person's marriage. The demise of Tim Donaghy's marriage may just be the beginning of his problems, but its clear that his professional missteps have contributed to her personal problems.
