Arnie, wife go for marriage counselling

2012-03-02 13:15
Los Angeles - Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver are reportedly attending "marriage counselling" sessions.

The former Governor of California is said to have initiated the sessions in a bid to reconcile with Maria after the pair split last year when she discovered he had fathered a child, who is now 14 years old, with their housekeeper Mildred Patty Baena.

A friend told the New York Post: "Arnold and Maria are having marriage counselling to work through their issues to get back together.

"Maria is a devout Catholic and doesn't believe in divorce, but is still struggling with the humiliation she endured by him."

Desperate to win her back

The 64-year-old actor - who has four kids, Katherine, 22, Christina, 20, Patrick, 18 and 14-year-old Christopher, with Maria - is said to have been promising his estranged wife "the moon" as he is "desperate" to get her back.

Another friend of the pair - who were married for 25 years - added: "He is promising the moon and telling Maria he has completely changed his ways.

"Maria's friends are warning her to be careful, saying he'll never change. Arnold is desperate to win her back, mostly because he realises he can't live without her, and partly because he doesn't have the political clout without her.

"Winning her back would be the best way to show the world he has been forgiven for his transgressions."

Arnold and Maria were spotted furniture shopping in Santa Monica, Los Angeles on Wednesday, and earlier this year the Terminator star was spotted wearing his wedding ring. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
