Arnold Schwarzenegger

200 Million Reasons to Stay Married to Maria

1/10/2014 1:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0109-arnold-maria-tmzArnold Schwarzenegger has 2 very good reasons NOT to finalize his divorce ... and one has to do with writing a big fat check to Maria Shriver.

As you know ... Maria filed for divorce in July, 2011, after finding out her hubby had been banging the maid and produced a son.

Sources familiar with Arnold's situation tell TMZ ... there's no prenup so under California law it's pretty simple -- 50/50.  And our sources say there's no real issue over custody of their only minor child.

So why, you ask, has this divorce dragged on 2 1/2 years?  We're told Arnold doesn't want to write a gargantuan check to Maria ... and we know how much -- and it hurts.

Sources tell us their net worth is around $400 million.  We're told Arnold knows Maria is entitled to half -- but knowing it and watching around $200 million leave your bank account are 2 very different things.

As for the second reason Arnold's in no hurry ... we're told he's getting pretty serious with his girlfriend,   physical therapist Heather Milligan.  If Arnold gets divorced, the pressure's on for him to pop the question ... and Arnold's not necessarily a one woman kind of guy.

Just ask the maid.

Look, MEN run the world....not women. Everyone knows its a mans world and thus, we should be able to do anything we want....the woman is entitled to nothing unless WE choose to give it to her. Heck, he ALREADY made her a whole woman by giving her children and the change to be a mother.

Maria is wealthy and successful I her own right. If anyone social-climbed, it was Arnold. Remember the old rumor he told a friend in Austria that he was going to go to America, become a movie star, and marry a Kennedy, and was laughed at? That being said Maria earned EVERY PENNY of what she could get in a divorce. Let's not pretend that the maid was Arnold's first time at the cheatin' rodeo.

Who ever made it okay for women to receive half of your **** if you divorce is a dumbass so you have to pay to get married then pay to get divorce and then still say after you're divorced what the ****? Why can't both parties part ways with what they brought to the marriage??? So lets say I have a house that been in my family for generations I can lose that house to my ex wife and that is some how fair??? Exactly why are men dumb enough to get married these days? Don't tell me you're both religious because u don't remember seeing anything about divorce in the bible or Torah or any of those book or maybe I missed it so its obvious you're not religious so why get married?**** that crap boycott marriage until it changes marriage is just a title on the relationship you already have and an accuses for your wife to let herself go and become a boring naggy snob because she has you by the wallet
