Arnold/Maria Split

A Long Time Coming

5/10/2011 6:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Maria Shriver has been "miserable" in her marriage for a long, long time, sources connected with the couple tell TMZ ... and it's all about Arnold Schwarzenegger's "craziness."

Arnold Schwarzenegger Divorce

We're told Maria moved out of the couple's L.A. mansion months ago.  Sources tell us she's been extremely unhappy in her marriage for years, complaining about Arnold's out of control ego, as well as his womanizing.

We're also told Maria feels Arnold has ignored her for years and she's felt terribly unappreciated.

Sources say the couple has spent "very little time together" for several years.  Maria was frequently absent from Sacramento while Arnold was Governor. 

The situation got worse once Arnold left office and decided he wanted to resurrect his movie career.  Maria felt Arnold was becoming more erratic -- more "unstable." 

Our sources say Maria's religious views caused her deep distress over whether to split and/or divorce.   As one source put it: "She's been a lost soul for a long time."

Hope is a thing with feathers that perches in the soul...
Written by another famous woman. Maria Shriver is no fly by night woman who can be commented on willy nilly. Arnold is a cad and will likely be very sorry in the future. He is a fool to have thrown away Maria. She is very strong - it is in the genetic make up of her family - she will survive this and flourish. Arnold will be left in the dust to live a life devoid of morality and character, attractive only to women who are floozies. He joins suck ilk as Tiger Woods. As a woman, I say, ick! My prayers are with Maria and her children, particularly her daughters. Four kids wasn't enough for the cad!

As life goes I feel that Arnold and Maria were not close in the last few years of their lives.. They should get on with their lives. I think that This child of ten years needed to know his father, for that i give arnold that . You can't llive you life for other people if you truly don't think their is a joint feeling of wanting to grow old together. This is sad andI think they need their time to go on from here. The media is all about money and they don't care who they hurt. Thi sid really a private matter even though Arnold and Maria are high profile people where does their privacy end and public opion end. They are people just like you and me and make mistakes just like anyone else and you can say what you wanat but sometimes people in glass houses should not throw stones. We don't everything about their home life and we don't need to know.

It is clear that the maid was a complete slut! She used Maria and betrayed her also. Women like her she have their name released to the press. No amount of stoning is too much for her and the stupid Terminator. Why didn't the Terminator terminate the pregnancy? Idiot!

I believe Arnold did the best he could in the situation he was in.First of all,it happened a long time ago and they have lived a happy and non conflicting marriage ever since.He also took responsibility for his own actions by supporting that child while also beeing a great provider for his family.He is also very sorry to Maria.Ithink she ought to forgive him and give him one more chance under these cir***stances.

My heart is very sad for the wife and the five children. We all have sinned and are in need of forgiveness. This family has been fractured for a long time. In God's sight the union between the two has been severed.Once this occurres, seldom can it be restored to unity, without counseling and God's interventions.The bandages placed on the wound held it together although, the drainage seeped through until, the wound eviscerated, exposing a widely open wound, which requires debreeding and major surgery. Many of us are forced to live in a deceased matrimony after its' death hath departed.
There appears to be no remorse between the two partners in crime. Our society places many of us in situations that makes it very difficult to adhere to certain standards especially, when it has shaped one's character. There are specific needs that need to be met in this situation. Is it her needs , his needs, their needs? Only they can be the one's to know. In the meantime it is my prayer that the God of hope,forgiveness and compassion will be in their hearts and in mine and go on with life. "Let It Be." "Let It be." There will be an answer, Let It Be."

if they were muslims there will be no problem as from the start the women knows that her husband can have 3 other legal marriages and the children of the other wives will be legal and socially respected with equal rights with other half brothers not a product of sin..from the start they decide what to give and what to take upon divorce which make things much easier..I do not know why Catholics refuse divorce and orthodox accept it..I do not understand why catholics do not give another chance of marriage to divorced couples while they accept extra marital relations and welcome it

Not a good idea doing divorce, i thing they should resolve their issues.
Arnold should change himself for Maria and Maria should change herself for Arnold, if they really have some will remaining in their hearts to stay with each other.

I saw 200-300 poor, elderly, disabled people stand in the sun for 3 hours yesterday during a commodities distribution for a couple of bags of groceries. And thanks to the Reagan-era thike mill, manufacturing jobs here in NC went overseas. This Maria won't even fix her husband a bowl of oatmeal at 6:45 and he makes an ass of himself groping strangers and gets elected governor of California. TV hides the poor who have real problems and we get this crap. Remember the French Revolution!
