Maria Shriver

Second Thoughts

About Divorcing Arnold

12/26/2011 10:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF


Maria Shriver
is telling friends she's now unsure if she wants to divorce Arnold Schwarzenegger ... TMZ has learned.

We're told Maria is torn, partly because of her strong religious beliefs that do not include divorce. 

Making matters even more complicated -- we're told Arnold still desperately wants Maria back, and has been "extremely sweet" to her and has made numerous gestures -- which include presents -- to win Maria back.
Maria filed for divorce on July 1, though she moved out months earlier.  She's already bought a mansion in Brentwood, CA, which she's in the process of renovating.

I find it interesting that she is using religion as the reason to hesitate in divorce. It is the Kennedy family who had a husband get an annulment from the church after several years of marriage and children. The rich always manipulate religion and rules. The church isn't as harsh as it used to be, as long as she doesn't remarry (and I can't imagine she would be interested in that, at least not now). She would be foolish to take him back.

Wow...didn't realize what a desperate woman Maria is to be reconsidering the divorce. And then to use RELIGION as the reason. Please, give us a break.

Of course he wants her back! NO PRE-NUP!!! She's in such denial - like Michael Jordan's wife - he kept wooing her back and she ate it up!! THEY LOVE THEIR MONEY MORE THAN YOU!!!

If a woman this smart is having seconds thoughts after the way he cheated on her in her own home ect. than I don't feel so bad about the stupid mistakes I've made in what I though was love. the first time a man cheats it's a clear signal he wants someone more than you and is willing to sacrifice what you have to have it with someone else. and if he cheats multiple times whats the point. why do men want a relationship when they are going to cheat, what is the point. just be single and fool around why drag some poor woman into it men are Dogs

Don't do it, Maria. He broke the vows, not you. Don't put yourself through that stupid Catholic guilt doormat stuff when you're the wronged party.

Go back to your career and finish raising the kids. Take a lover of your own. Live a little.

It is more than religion because if that were the case she would not have filed in the first place.

Are you kidding me?

She's a Kennedy, all the wives stayed with their Kennedy men after years of cheating. This is a new era and generation Maria women don't have to put up with that any longer, its certainly not for financial reasons and I don't believe it is based on your religious beliefs.

Different Rules Apply    

It must be because a divorce with this kind of wealth is just too messy. I cannot believe it is because they still have any sort of trust or bond. He slept with the Effing maid and had a baby right in her own house!! She is a fool to not kick his ass to the curb. C'mon Maria, set an example for your daughters ~ cheating is NOT OK. If you want to Eff around, don't commit or marry!!!!

Wow, you ppl are harsh. What's the harm in staying married to him? Sex is sex. They have children and a friendship which means more than sex. Why do we put so much into being faithful anyway? Favorite line from a movie, "If you want monogamy marry a swan." Some men (and women) can be faithful. Good luck finding one in this day and age!

Unless this worldly carnal christian cheating husband has a truly repentant heart (sorry enough to STOP doing it) he will most likely fail at being faithful to the Lord & his wife. If a man lusts in his heart he has already committed infidelity amen Amen AMEN Put your trust in JESUS

This woman has no self esteem. This guy is a dog, a pig, a liar, a cheat...pick one, pick them all! Granted, Maria looks like the crypkeeper but has some self respect lady. This man screwed the fugly immigrant maid and had a "secret" kid with her. How much more of a POS can somebody be anyway? Both of you were pregnant at the same time. If this lady stays married to this loser she deserves everthing he has ever done to her.

She needs to set a good example for her daugters by kicking his azz to the curb! Teach your daughters that women deserve to be treating with respect and dignity in a marriage. What Arnold did was so far beyond the bounds of decency. This UGLY azz man comes to the US without a nickle, married into the effing Kennedy family and STILL pulls this kind of shiat. Message to Maria: NOT ALL MEN CHEAT!

Get a good therapist Maria. Work on YOURSELF. Spend some time trying to figure out why you are attracted to pig like Arnold in the first place.

Maria...take him back. His heart sincerely belongs to you. Yes,his old azz can go out there and marry some young chic that will do her damdest acting role in fulfilling that hole in your spirit. NO ONE COULD EVER MEASURE UP TO YOU! He knows it,like so many other men who stray. Maria knows thatshe loves him too. Does America think that they are above being normal when these misfortunes come into their lives? It's not like that low life housekeeper will ever be in their lives again. Yes he'll pay child support and spend time with his son minus wash woman.But over all I think they have enough ac***ulated wealth to get away from the whole media world and if she can now understand that he is the neanderthal Conan that she married,she can again be happy cause that is the man she knows she is happiest with.

Man She ages Badly! She looks like a 75 year old version of Bobby mixed with President Jack Kennedy. Arnold looks nasty too, hairy as a wookie in a Europeon male, 1/4" Side bikini. I mean get a speedo an cover that up. LOL
