With a final decree issued by a Los Angeles judge, Maria Shriver and Arnold Schwarzenegger, who were together for 25 years until they split in 2011, are no longer officially married. The pair had been separated since 2011 and finally came to an agreement to end the marriage with a confidential settlement. The decision came from Schwarzenegger’s revelation of fathering a child with a household staff member several years earlier. After ten years, their over 25-year-old marriage has officially ended.
What went wrong?

Schwarzenegger revealed that he and a member of their home staff had fathered a child years ago. The revelation of Schwarzenegger’s affair triggered a tabloid frenzy, but the couple quietly settled the divorce.
