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."

Maria Shriver had a career of her own a news reporter and a damn good one. She didn't have to work but she did, she is not ugly, and that is all of her hair, Kennedys have a head full of thick hair. A woman doesn't have to put up with a man that can't keep it zipped forever.

They both need to grow up. Arnold, stop being a self-absorbed ass. Maria, stop the self-pity and go eat some damn food.

It's interesting to see the range of comments. Everyone seem to be assuming that it's all Arnold's fault.

The reality is that none of us know the truth.

Issues like these in marriage are usually way more complicated and no one party is ever totally responsible!!

Geez why talk about her weight, I have never seen a fat Kennedy woman, I'm sure she eats plenty some people just don't gain weight, especially an athletic person.

First?

Finish this and divorce the cheat.

Second?

Find Demi Moores plastic surgeon and get a little Botox and fillers.

Third? Lay low, have a civil, respectful relationship with the father of your children and be done with it.

He's 64 years old, he will not be changing his ways...expect more of the same if you stay with him.

If the marriage has been in trouble for years, I'm sorry for everyone involved, especially their children. I would imagine that it's coming out now, after her parents have died and he is out of office. She probably had an entire political team keeping her under wraps to prevent a news blitz about their personal lives, and I know this must be a very difficult time for one or both of them. Most people go into marriage with rose-colored glasses and think Love will never die! All problems in this marriage should be kept private ... the media is cut-throat and will intensify every problem that exists! Media ... go back to spying on Lindsey and leave real people alone!

I just hope their children won't have too hard of a time dealing with the spit in the public like this, they are all very nice looking young people (don't look like their parents) and look like they are happy in the pictures you see of them in.

I hope the media leaves them alone.

Good for Arnold... I'm not sure what she brought to the relationship other than her relations to the most crooked political family in history. She probably was a good Mom because she doesn't have a worthwile career in anything, but Babymomma-ing!! ;)

I'm sure the last straw for her was the pardoned Arnie granted (the day before he left the governorship) for a CA politician's son for stabbing a college kid WHO LATER DIED and getting his sentence reduced in half! Maria was thinking "what if that was my son that got stabbed...AND DIED AT A FRAT PARTY?" Any mother would think their husband was a nut job for that decision. Arnie just yawned and laughted it off when questioned by the media. What a Heartless man. More power to you Maria, get out of that hellish marriage!!!!!

- Only Surprised it took her so long. He's an egomanical boorish pig who's been cheating on her for eons. As long as women put up with it, men will behave like idiots. Now he willgo get his 25 yrold bleach blond golddigger and have 4 more "babies" to distract him from the fact that he's an old lecher-ugghh. Her mistake was thinking this was ever going to work. Reportedly her parents told ehr not to marry him-see always listen to Mom.

Many years ago I saw Arnold give an interview and he talked about what it was like growing up in Austria. He told a story that if a teacher had to call the parents because thir child had misbehaved, the parent would come to the classroom and slap them across the face. He seemed very proud of that fact. It only told me that he wasn't a strict father, he was an ass----!
