Arnold Schwarzenegger

Resigned to Divorce

4/11/2012 1:05 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Maria Shriver and Arnold SchwarzeneggerArnold Schwarzenegger would like Maria Shriver to take him back, but he's not holding out hope and is at peace with the likely end of his marriage ... sources very close to the actor tell TMZ.

As TMZ first reported, Maria has waffled on divorcing her hubby, partly because he still has a strong emotional hold on her and partly because divorce runs counter to her religion. But we're told as time passes and both Arnold and Maria have created separate lives, divorce is looking more certain.

We're told Arnold believes Maria's friends have done everything they can to poison the waters, imploring Maria to stay clear of him.

And our sources say Arnold and Maria are already "very close" in working out a financial settlement.

Whatever they decide, we're told both Arnold and Maria are in lockstep over one thing -- making the break up as painless as possible for their kids.

She should take him back...She's old and can't do any better. The older a man gets his value goes up! The older a woman gets her value goes down...Sad but true!

I'm against cheating, but, sometimes it can spice up the sexlife. Also, when your wife look like the arch-enemy skeleton from he-man, then mayby we can give him some slack.
She isnt a christian, I wouldnt take out a divorce if my husband cheated on me, which he has in the past, when you got kids you got to be a role model. but then again, im in my 20's and not some disgusing left over in my 50's like Maria.

The only reason that I can think of why Arnold would want to stay married to that ugly skeletor is to avoid losing half of his hard earned fortune to her in a divorce settlement.

Please. No way she did not know. Funny, how 'after' Arnie is out of office, this comes out. Arnie is now resigned to divorce. What a guy.

Arnold, the only person who "poisoned the waters" of your marriage was you! Thanks to your infidelities.

If Maria took Arnold back she'd be stupider than she was for staying married to him for all those years. (If that's possible).

It's pretty easy to "poison waters" that are already toxic.

This is a guy who not only bangs the housekeeper, he gets her pregnant, she has the baby, and then they stand by while his wife holds the baby and remarks about it's cuteness. You really have to be devoid of conscience, moral character, or common sense to do that. And he wants a second chance with her? WOW! He also has to have an ego that's out of this world.

Arnold "resigns" himsel to divorce says the headline.

Arnold himself broke the marriage many times but the REALLY big thing was he had another child at the same time Maria had his child. I'd not only divorce him but I would most likely shoot him.

IT'S ABOUT TIME! I could never see what she ever saw in that LUGHEAD anyway. She's smart, educated, has an amazing heritage and had a great job. He's .....an idiot, an egostist, a misogynist too. AND YEAH ARNOLD.....it's ALL her friends fault. NOT the fact that you not only cheated, multiple times, it was with your maid and someone in Maria's and your children's home. The you have a child with her and keep it a secret for years, even subjecting your family to there presence! OH NO...it's all her friends fault...boo the eff hoo.

If this is true: "We're told Arnold believes Maria's friends have done everything they can to poison the waters, imploring Maria to stay clear of him." Typical behaviour - it could not POSSIBLY be his own fault and doing as to why she is staying away....it must be her friends telling her to do so. He is in denial that he did anything wrong. once a cheat always a cheat. dump his ass.

Oh yeah. Maria's FRIENDS are responsible for poisoning the waters? After Arnold fathers a child with the housekeeper? Really, TMZ?
