Second Thoughts

About Divorcing Arnold

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 think you should do what YOU wan, not what everyone else thinks is right. Put your trust in your faith and it will lead you in the right direction. Good Luck

He's appealing to the martyred saint in her. Does anyone really expect a compulsively promiscuous guy to stop just because he got caught once? Sure hope she sticks to her guns and TERMINATES him. He really asked for it.

My wife and I had high hopes for Maria to stay strong and divorce this habitual bully and womanizer. Too bad she is using this ancient excuse to consider remaining married to this lying s***. He knew full well for all those years the kid was his, while he played it off as just his maids kid who visited their home from time to time. The other staff must have wondered how blind and stupid Maria could be not to notice the resemblance. Oh well, the curse of the Kennedy woman who look the other way and bite their tongue is rearing it's ugly head again. Keep the tradition going Maria, you past strength and conviction was just sapped away for a pathetic and worthless person.

If she take him back it will officially make her an idiot. But everyone has the right to choose to be an idiot. All I can say is that her daughter will follow her example so she should do what she would want her daughter to do in the same situation.

Maria's logic is a gigantic mess.

She's basically saying she'll be okay with whatever sh*t Arnold feels like doing. Arnold could cheat again in the future 78569827346847 times, even murder someone and Maria would remain married to him, because of her beliefs.

Doesn't Maria think perhaps she could get divorced and then ask God to forgive her for the divorce, maybe???? I'm sure God would forgive her divorcing Arnold. God would certainly understand.

Maria is probably going senile or something...
Arnold, on the other hand, seems to have always been brainless, the poor imbecile clown. How could anyone ever have patience with a troll such as Arnold? What a mess, I can't even.

Look at Maria. She was getting smaller and smaller. looks like Arnold was living off of her. He had to switch for a while, otherwise Maria would have died.

Never say never. They have several children and many years together. I knew one woman who was so frustrated with her husband's many affairs that she had one herself to get back at him. But during required pre-divorce counseling, they both decided that they had something together that was worth salvaging. They worked really hard at it but years later, their marriage was stronger than it had ever been, their relationship evolved to something much much better, and they actually managed to rebuild trust between them. It required a lot of changing for both of them, but it happened. Maybe something like that is going on here. It's not always about money or politics.

So her beliefs on divorce force her to rethink her divorcing Arnold? So, she should then think of an "eye for an eye" and cut off Arnold's part that helped in little mishap. Skeletor, just divorce the guy and count the money.

He's a narcissistic person who does not feel empathy or show respect. His persona has grown larger than life and he feels he can just do whatever he wants. A husband who has this mentality is malignant and never a true, equal and loving husband that is responsive to her needs. He is just a show, as all narcissists are and will always be the center of attention in his own world. Unfortunately these types of people are unworthy of the support and attention they generate for themselves. Seeking attention and importance is a lifelong quest for a narcissist and he does it with little regard for all others, including his family. She is co-dependent on him and has become addictive to his disrespectul abuse. She needs psychological intervention to help get her head on straight. Even then, co-dependent women are often perfectionists, projecting an image that is not based on true substance or authenticity and they continue to miss their mark as they strive to keep up appearances. A co-dependent woman must remove herself from the situation, work on finding her authentic self by realizing the mistakes she made and how not to repeat the process. She should not try to jump back into a relationship until she is mentally stable. If she does,she will have learned nothing. The worst is behind Maria and I hope she is strong enough to not fall victim to him or other narcissist like him again.
