Arnold Loves Maria: Schwarzenegger Hopes For Reconciliation

arnold loves maria wants to get together

Arnold Schwarzenegger loves Maria Shriver, and the actor and former governor of California candidly confessed that he wants to patch up his relationship, heavily damaged by an infidelity and the revelation of an illegitimate child.

Arnold admits he loves Maria, his wife of nearly 30 years, taking responsibility for the affairs that led to the pair’s estrangement and putting his feelings of love and loss out there in new interviews in which he discusses the semi-split.

Though Schwarzenegger and Shriver are still married, it’s clear that the pair have not entirely bridged the gap in their marriage following the stunning and devastating revelation that not only had Arnold stepped out — but that his indiscretion had been cemented by a child borne of the affair with a staff member.

But throughout the ensuing scandal, Arnold says, his love for Maria remains, and he too remains hopeful the past and his forays into non-monogamy will not spell the end of their relationship.

Earlier this month, Schwarzenegger sat down with Mario Lopez to chat about his new book, Total Recall: My Unbelievably True Life Story, and the action star heaps praise on Shriver, immediately saying:

“Things are going well … I have to credit my wife, who has been terrific in keeping everything together.”

When Lopez asks if Maria is the love of Arnold’s life, he replies to that and a question of what he would have done differently, saying:

“Oh yes, absolutely … [I’d go back and] not make the mistakes… it’s always good to be smart in hindsight.”

Schwarzenegger’s interview below makes it clear that Arnold loves Maria, but can a marriage survive such a public setback? Have you ever dealt with a similar infidelity heartbreak, and should cheating be forgiven if a spouse makes amends?

    He loves Maria? Does he know what love is? I would guess he does not.

    When you love someone you don't feel the need to be with another. Some people just don't realize what they have til they screw up and lose it.

    Why is it understandable and acceptable when older Caucasian men commit adultery, but it's absolutely horrendous when others cheat? Bill Clinton still gets standing ovations, and guys constantly make excuses for Arnold saying that "this is just what men do." By "men" they just mean that Caucasian men get a free pass.

    Funny about himdsight, we'd all do it differently…. Always want what you can have…Loved her? He got caught…now he want's her back…age old story….

    This was more than cheating. This was a lie and a sham perpetuated for more than a decade. Both women should never give Arnold a second look. He disrespected both of them for his own selfish needs. No women should ever spend another dime at his movies.

    We understand fidelity and honoring the marriage vows, something men don't seem to understand and never hold accountability for their own actions. 24 years strong and faithful, you just don't seem to understand common sense and commitment. stop thinking with your dick.

    Every human being in this world have made a mistake in our lives one way or another but, there's always room for second chance. If that was my husband, I will forgive and give him a second chance. If he did it again, no more chance and that's it. Goodbye for good!

    I reaqlly don't think Maria is THAT dumb! also.. hello Arnold.. Your "comeback" attempt was a failure too! get a clue! How can someone have THAT big of a view of themselves! Sometimes love just isn't enough…respect once damaged is a hard one to find again! So is trust!

    I'm sorry its one thing to have an affair which I do not condome, but another one to have an affari with the maid in your home where your wife and childen live AND then produce a child, I'm sorry that's unforgivable!!! That's totally disrespect!!!

  11. Lazetta Smith

    It is totally left up to Maria to forgive. But what he did went beyond having an affair. He was sleeping with the housekeeper in the family home, the affair produced a child. That's unforgivable, I don't see how you can get beyond that. What deceit and total disrespect.

  12. Paula Ann Bashline

    I hope she doesn't take him back. He doesn't deserve that right as he knew very well what he was doing was wrong. And to bring a child into this world on secret ground? Come on old man….

    If you are truly a Christian (which many yahoo readers may not understand) you will greatly consider Gov. Shwarzenegger's hope for reconciliation. Knowing both are Catholic and all who practice their Judeo-Christian faith, the only reason we exist is that Christ of our faith came to die and rose again and taught all humans of forgiveness and reconciliation. Christ Gospel can never be changed by this world. This revelation to the Gov. is the right beginning for a new world for him and to all who follow, by all fallen creation. Great news is " God gave us a second chance."

    I actually don't agree, though that is my opinion. I know many happy, committed polyamorous people who have relationships that are stronger than a lot of monogamous ones I know.

    Love takes many different forms, and sometimes monogamy isn't one of them.

    Arnold is coming to grips with the fact that he is a washed up action movie figure and half of his life savings will be gone!

  17. KD Barr

    Arnold, Maria is more woman than you were a man. A real man does not cheat. If she forgives you and takes you back be a real man.

    I admire Hillary Clinton. I hope she would learn to be strong and wise as Hillary Clinton.

  19. LaTeshia Henderson

    I am sorry if he loved her it should have been enough where he should have walked away from the situation at hand. Now after all the damage he caused, he profess this bullshyt? Really? She may forgive but I know she will never forget what she married!

  20. Nancy Buss

    The Retrouvaille Program could help them reconcile and rediscover each other.
    If Maria freely wills and courageously chooses to rekindle her love for Arnold by making the DECISION to Recommit, Forgive, and Trust her husband, then Divinity will rush in to support and rekindle Love. Why? Because Marriage is a Sacrament/Covenant Graced by our ever-forgiving, nonjudgmental Creator.

    Really!!! Bull$hit don't believe his a$$… Damn! CHEATER…

    Any form of adultery is unforgivable, and it doesn't matter who it is committing the horrible act!
