It’s all my fault
Arnold Schwarzenegger recently opened up about his highly publicized divorce from Maria Shriver in an interview with MSN. The former California governor admitted that the end of his marriage was entirely his own doing.
“I take full responsibility for the mistakes that I made,” Schwarzenegger said. “There’s no one else to blame but me. It was my fault.”
The couple, who were married for 25 years, separated in 2011 after it was revealed that Schwarzenegger had fathered a child with their household staff member. Shriver filed for divorce shortly thereafter.
Schwarzenegger’s admission of guilt comes as no surprise to those who have followed the scandal. In his book, “Total Recall: My Unbelievably True Life Story,” the actor and politician wrote about the affair and its aftermath.
Despite the pain and heartbreak caused by the infidelity, Schwarzenegger expressed remorse and a desire to make amends.
“The biggest mistake I’ve ever made in my whole life was to screw up this great marriage,” he said. “I will always love Maria, and I hope that she can forgive me and we can move on.”
Shriver, for her part, has largely remained out of the public eye since the split. However, the former First Lady of California has spoken in the past about the importance of forgiveness and moving forward in the face of adversity.
While the couple’s divorce was undoubtedly a painful and difficult time for both parties, Schwarzenegger’s candid admission of guilt and expression of remorse is a step towards healing and closure.
