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.

I would divorce him in a heartbeat. She can't trust him and I know that if it were me, I wouldn't want to have anything to do with the kid or his mother.

Say what you will about Maria but she's a good person. She really is. When the baby mama maid confirmed that that boy was Arnold's and she was crying and almost hysterical the first thing Maria did was hug her. Not a whole lot of women would do that. Arnold? He's a ****.

I don't see how living separate lives is going to NOT lead to a divorce. If she truly wanted to make the marriage work, they would be in marriage counseling while they stayed in separate rooms living in the SAME house.

Arnold, you had it all, now everyone knows who you really are. Just a pig with a wallet. If it were possible, I would hope Maria leaves you without a cent. Karma!

About Time Maria walked her talk.

In other news.....have you seen the The Unreal George Zimmerman site. Critical of George, his legal counsel, and media?

Maria's friends have poisoned her against him? Yeah, it couldn't be his own behavior or anything.

Ok, obviously they were not a happy couple, or he would not have turned to the maid. They need to divorce and get on with their separate lives, coming together only for their children. Some things just are not forgivable. In this case it was having sex with the maid in the marriage bed, fathering a child with the ho, then rubbing Maria's nose in it by bringing the kid around her and her kids.

To commenter #4 (quizcotl): Your comment is so ignorant that I decided to become a first time commenter here. First of all, if you are in your 20's with kids and your husband has already cheated on you (and apparently successfully sold you on how it spices up your sex life), then I pity the road ahead for you and you are NOT a good role model for your children. I would watch calling a fifty-something woman "disgusting" due to her age and failed marriage, as I predict that you will be the same (the years fly by, honey) before you know it. You hopefully aren't who you say you are, because it's appalling for a twenty-something woman married to a cheating man to be so hateful to an older woman who is having some self-respect and knows she doesn't need a man (unlike you).

He had a baby with the maid. There's no coming back from that one.

Only TMZ band of sophomoric idiots would characterize people who recommend going forward in a divorce - after a person had been CHEATED ON resulting in LUST CHILD as poisoning the waters. When it's your turn, don't be a hypocrite, take your own advice...

I think Arnold was a social climber and used Maria's image and family to become governor. He is basically an uneducated, illegal immigrant who has used everybody to climb. I think that she should get a kinder, more loving, more decent man. He is an impostor and probably a narcissist.
