No Prenup? Arnold and Maria to Split EVERYTHING 50/50, and Then Some

Arnold did something wrong, and is definitely going to have to pay the price…

According to Radar Online, in accordance with California law, if no prenup exists in a marriage, due to a Community Property statute, all assets obtained during a marriage must be split 50/50.

As for the situation that is Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver, there is no prenup.  But that’s not all!  According to reports, Schwarzenegger is seriously considering giving Shriver even more than the state mandated sum of 50%.  A source told the site:

“Arnold realized he is to blame for the collapse of his marriage…Maria was a loving wife and mother, and he doesn’t think that any amount of money can minimize what he has put her through. He wants to do the right thing, and go above and beyond what is required of him under the law.”

Shriver formally filed for divorce on July 1 and had previously hired investigators to ascertain just how much her husband was worth. Settlement discussions between Shriver and Schwarzenegger’s lawyers have reportedly been underway for more than two months.  Sources say that number could be somewhere between $500-$750 million:

“This is going to be a very amicable divorce, and it won’t be played out in the media…Neither one of them wants that. Arnold hasn’t lost his mind, he is going to be giving away his fortune to her. He wants to show his children he is taking responsibility for his actions.”

Schwarzenegger had an extramarital affair with one of his housekeepers and fathered a child, born around the same time as his youngest son, out of wedlock.  Shriver and Schwarzenegger have agreed on joint custody.
