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.

Because they married long long ago and he was almost a nobody and she came from the Kennedy family. It was a win for Arnold at the time.

Isn't it possible that they are not the holdup? They are both Catholic, and there's a good chance they are waiting for dispensation from the church to make sure that they will be able to marry in a church in the future. I know several couples who are not famous that took a long time for the 'permission' from the church to be finalized before they went to court. The pope has had a busy year!

I still can't shake this thought from my head: Maria must be the worst lay on the planet.

To Heather, my LHS friend, please take this as your cue to run away as fast as you can! Don't fall into his trap! You are a smart girl, and only 38!

This guy is the biggest creep who has ever walked the planet. Back in his bodybuilder days he was very well known as someone who could not walk past a woman without making some crude rude nasty remark. Why his reputation took so long to surface is a mystery to me.
