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."

Jen - you don't have sympathy for many people, do you? And I take it you'd never make a mistake like marrying the wrong person.

Why would Maria Shriver marry him unless she thought they'd be happy - she could have gotten someone else, couldn't she, with her name? And why the snide remark about the kids? The "advantages" you talk about is not worth as much as good, loving parents - you know that.

Translation. She's tired of not being in the spotlight. There's only so long a Kennedy or their ilk can be out of the press, they just HAVE to have publicity. No more Kennedy's ever. Ever!

Oh well. Back to being a has-been wrestler and a mediocre actor.

Considering his history with steroids I highly doubt he's able to do too much womanizing. He's shrunk to the size of a raisin by now. Without her he never would have been elected, period. She gave him political clout and once people saw him as the GOP a**hole that he is, he lost. His craziness is probably his return to 'roids in order to get his old Terminator physique back.

I'm sorry they allowed their marriage and family slowly fall apart until it seemed the only inevitable conclusion to divorce. It's like doing no maintenence or upkeep on your house then being outraged when it falls apart and you just walk away. Those 4 kids they have are the victims. Kids are profoundly affected whether children or adults when their parents divorce. Great job Arnold and Maria- your family foundation is now fractured for generations. Get your **** together is what I want to say to people who marry then slowly let it die. Not saying it's easy just essential to work things out.

Maybe she didn't like him pardoning a murderer as a "favor for a friend."
