The rumor is out that Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver are going to marriage counseling to help work through their issues. Arnold is lucky that Maria is a devout Catholic who does not believe in divorce. According to sources, Arnold is doing everything in his power to get her back. He claims to be a “changed” man, but Maria’s friends don’t want want to hear it? They say he will never change.
I’ll give you my take. Most likely they will not work-out their differences because of their high profile nature and because of their career demands. However, being a therapist who has worked with countless couples, it is possible. There is a lot of pain and mistrust that Maria will have to deal with and believe it or not so will Arnold, unless he’s a complete narcissist. It’s going to take a long time to restore trust. For this relationship to work, Arnold will need to completely change his priorities, which will mean stepping out of the limelight and stepping back into his marriage. It depends what is more important to Arnold-his career or his wife. Can he do it? What are your thoughts?
