Arnold Schwarzenegger wants Maria Shriver to come back to him. Whether she obliges is a different story, but he's supposedly determined to make it happen.
The Governator is changing his ways to make that happen. Sort of.
Sources say Arnold finally gets that Maria couldn't stand the fact that he was ignoring her and her needs, having spent very little time together in recent years.
Arnold has actually made headway, making Maria "ambivalent" at times about whether to go through with a divorce, despite their just-announced separation.
"Maria has been tortured over pulling the plug on the marriage," a source says. "One day she's determined to get the hell out, the next day she just can't."
Notably, they just spent an evening at an L.A. area hotel for their anniversary. Doesn't sound like somebody emotionally terrified of their spouse, does it?
One source very familiar with the couple says that amid the separation, "Arnold has done a 180. He's been really sweet to her since all this went down."
Guys. Can't live with 'em, are we right ladies?
