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."

Not a shock that Arnold is a cheater. His past has followed him from the days of his bodybuilding contests. I recall so many of these stories well before his movie days. All you need to do is watch the Pumping Iron movie to know what that guy is all about. The steroids don't help with tta, but the Ego is all Arnold.

Alos, is that Arnold idiot still driving around in those hummer vehicles? You know, he helped with the design of the street versions. (Well, he gave his input). So much for saving the environment. I bet he kills the water supply when he pees out all of those steroids. LOL!

Go watch or read up on The Borgias, then come talk to me about Catholicism. Back in the day, religions were considered Cults. The only thing the church is good for is taking your cold hard cash.

Don't forget that the Kennedy's made their millions by bootlegging whiskey. So, there's always that! Instead of worrying about yet another celebrity bull**** story, why not donate some cash to the poor suckers who had tornadoes, hurricanes, and flooding in the USA midwest?

My personal advice to Maria is hold off on the divorce. If he wants to save the marriage and is remorseful and promises never to betray you again, I would give it some more time and just separate for a while until wounds heal somewhat and maybe you can eventually save the marriage. Many other people have had problems and saved their marriage. But wait a while before you make major decisions. Thats my opinion.

I have NO SYMPATHY for any guy who has a good-looking wife, and then cheats on her. Arnold jopins the ranks of John Edwards, Tiger Woods, Bill Clinton, and many others.

My philosophy is this: "No one knows what goes on behind closed doors in someone's home", unless you are the one who lives behind those closed doors!Only 3 people know what went wrong in their relationship and marriage: " Maria, Arnold, and GOD!

A long time coming? She's "unappreciated"? This appears to me to be lawyer "sound bites" dropped to the press, who so dutifully report them, to see who can win the PR war in this divorce.

CA law is no-fault. Period. Community property assets are the only ones that can be split.

Maria can challenge a pre-nup all she wants...unless she can prove she was not in control of her faculties at the time it was signed, or was a minor at the time it was signed, or Ah-nuld/Maria violated the TERMS of the pre-nup, the pre-nup will stand.

The only ones who will make money on this is the LAWYERS.

Granted, Maria was betrayed by Arnold and the marriage is over and she will get 5o% of his estate which is valued at 200 million... What surprises me is the selfish ramblings of her kids who want to change their last names and who feel like they are victims. Where is the "Kennedy" compassion for their 13 year old half brother? Her kids are spoiled brats who make no effort to accept the other child who had nothing to do with their dad's infidelity other than to be born, I find their "pain" very strange and unforgiving... perhaps one day they will accept people who are less fortunate than themselves, and mature enough without the hate they have for a half brother who also shares their genes, maybe the "love child" will grow up and show Maria's self-centered kids are not worth their salt in the real world when he reaches adulthood, I pray he shows them how good a person he will become without their wealth.

He should have called up Brigham Young for advice... then again he probably would have landed up with a lot more women on his hands

It's amusing that the dimwit, jock, bloggers have negative comments about Maria and her looks. Arnold isn't, and has never been, attractive. Maria has beautiful eyes, and is a smart, warm, and gracious woman. She did much to get him elected. Without her, he's just steroids, dyed hair, plastic surgery and Viagra. He and creepy Hugh Hefner can buy bimbos. She can and will do better.
