Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver are reportedly in couples therapy in a bid to save their marriage. Can California's former first couple pull it off?
The pair, who split in 2011 after news broke that Arnold fathered a secret child with their housekeeper Mildred Patricia Baena, has been married 26 years.
Apparently that's more than reason enough for the couple to make a last-ditch effort to save their marriage, according to Thursday’s New York Post.
Sources told the Post that the devoutly Catholic Shriver can’t bear the thought of divorce, while The Terminator star realizes the gravity of his mistake.
“Arnold is desperate to save the marriage; he and Maria are having counseling to work through their issues to get back together,” a friend told the paper.
“Maria is a devout Catholic and doesn’t believe in divorce, but is still struggling with the profound heartbreak and humiliation she endured by him.”
“He is promising the moon and telling Maria he has completely changed his ways. All of Maria’s friends are warning her to be careful, saying he’ll never change."
“Arnold is going all out to win her back, mostly because he feels bad and he can't live without her, and partly because he has no political clout without her."
"Winning her back would be the best way to show the world he has been forgiven for his transgressions,” said the supposed insider to the Post.
Think they'll get back together? Should they?
