Were you shocked to hear that Arnold Schwarzenegger fathered a secret child? WHy or why not? Girls, if you were in Maria Shriver's shoes, and after 25 years of marriage you found out your husband was unfaithful, would you leave him or try and work it out? Why? Guys, why do you think so many public figures and celebrities are finding it so hard to stay faithful? Do you think any less of Arnold Schwarzenegger?

Am I surprised? No. Arnold is human and he has made a serious mistake and it appears to have cost him his marriage. Politically, he is probably finished. For public figures, superstar athletes and celebrities, it is probably difficult to stay faithful for many reasons. They are away from home more than most people. Because of their status people of both genders want to be around them. And sadly, they have a sense of entitlement that too often is used to justify bad behavior. It is surprising that we very rarely hear about those celebrities who take their faithfulness seriously. I never was an Arnold fan to begin with.

I'm slightly surprised by Arnold's actions. If I was Maria Shriver, I would leave Arnold because he kept the secret from her for so long. I do think less of Arnold because he should have remained faithful.

Any man would face this temptation when he is famous. The same thing happened with Tiger Woods. I have to say, there are probably not many people, whether they would admit it or not, that could resist.

Lauren...I was somewhat surprised to learn that Arnold fathered a child of one of his staff members. If I was Maria, I would not stay with Arnold. If he was unfaithful once before he may do it more than once. I would not trust him. However, I do not think any less of Arnold because he is human and everyone makes mistakes in life.

I am surprised that Arnold was unfaithful to his wife Maria Shriver. I think I would leave him, because after 25 years he shouldn't be doing anything behind her back. I think that it's hard for public figures and celebrities are finding it hard to stay faithful because they get so much attention all the time. I don't really think any less of Arnold.

I am not surprised by her having a secret child. If I was his wife I would not stay with him after knowing that he was unfaithful. I think famous people are having such of a hard time staying together because they don’t have the time.

LaKendra... I am not suprised to hear that he has fathered a secret child. Most people who are in the media spotlight always seem to not be faithful in a relationship. If I was in Maria's position I think that I would leave him. It would be impossible to trust him after keeping such a big secret away from me for so long. Even though I am not suprised, this does not make me think any less of him because at the end of the day he is still human and we all make mistakes.

Tee: I have to admit I'm a little surprised that Schwarzenegger fathered a secret child. I thought a little bit more of him, but everybody makes mistakes. Shriver did the right thing by breaking it off. When you're a famous man surrounded by women, I guess it can be hard to stay faithful. I understand, but there's no excuse.

Ashley says... I am not surprised about the announcement for the divorce. I'm just wondering how he kept it a secret that he had another child and was helping taking care of it. What he did to his wife was awful and to keep lying about it for all the years makes you think how honest couples are to each other. So many people are cheating on everyone and it's wrong. I don't blame her for leaving and I probably wouldn't forgive someone that cheated. He has kids and a family and he just tore it apart. He has gave bad influence to kids and followers. You might be famous but that dosen't call for cheating and making up lies. Their uncall excuses!!! He's just like everybody else!

Matt: Everyone makes mistakes in their lifetime. Mistakes that they wish they could take back. It is only when the pain that is called is directed on us, do we fully comprehend the severity of the mistake. It is now up to his family to decide whether or not he is worthy of forgiveness.

Sheron says…I would have to say I am surprised about this. I didn’t expect anything like this to come up from Arnold but things happen, mistakes are made and people move on.

Kristin says... If I were in Maria Shriver's shoes I would try to work it out. I wouldn't want to throw away 25 years of marriage. I think it's hard for so many public figures and celebrities to stay faithful because so many people idolize them. They constantly have people throwing themselves at them.

Chris says… I am kind of surprised that he would do something like this but he’s an actor and he has to do something to get his reputation back up. I don’t really know about what happened I think it had to do with some secret child but I really don’t know. Although this is big it really doesn’t affect me so what happens, happens he just has to move on.

Destiny saids....Well to me I am not surprise. Really guys do want they want to do and they are animals. I have never meet a male who was faithful to a girl. But some time its the girls fault that the action he is doing is becuase of her actions.Arnold really did messed up 25 years of marriage.

Jonathan says... Why would you cheat on somebody that your married to that's just messed up and wrong. If your gonna do that then you don't need to be married. In my opinion the reason why all of these celebrities are cheating is because there's so much temptation.

Cadeja Says: It does not shock me that Schwarzenegger fathered a secret child. Arnold Schwarzenegger is somebody that I have never really been a huge fan of and probably never will be. If I was in Shriver’s shoes I could possibly forgive him over time but after 25 years of marriage and he has a child with someone else I would not try to work it out. I believe that it is hard for celebrities and pro athletes to stay faithful because they are always on the go and because of them being so rich people want to be with them because of their money so celebrities fall for that. I do think less of Arnold Schwarzenegger because he should have remained faithful to his wife.

I don't think of him at all. Arnold is not a politician he is an actor. He will be back, with another child. At least he didn't birth the baby like in Junior. All politicians have done something sexual with at least one staffer. Even if you don't know it.

I was no shocked to hear about him having a baby outside of his marriage. It ain't the first to do it and won't be the last. Yes, I would leave him and won't look back to try and work things out with him. No, I don't think any less of him, but he know that that was a wrong thing to do knowing he was married.

Jake The Snake said...

I was shocked that he fathered a secret child. I wouldn't expect someone like Arnold Schwarzenegger to cheat on his wife. If I was her, I would leave him. I don't know why celebrities are finding it so hard to stay faithful. I lost a lot of my respect for him, but he's not perfect, and everyone sins and makes mistakes.

I was Shocked when i heard about the chid knowing it happend so long ago after you thought he was a good husband. If i found out that i was being cheated on after so long i usally would give them another chance but because he had another kid i would feel really hurt and i would feel like i would be impossible to fix what he did. I have no idea why celebs are being so horrible when it comes to being faithful.

Holly said...

I am not surprised that Schwarzenegger has a secret child. If I was Maria, I would leave him. If he was unfaithful once, then he would do it sgain. I was never a big fan of Arnold, but I won't think any less of him. Everyone makes mistakes, that's what makes us human.

I like Arnold, and I don't think this makes me like him any less. Why anyone (except for the close family members) would hold any kind of strong emotion against him is beyond me. I feel bad for his wife and family, but if they had any kind of love for each other they would still be together. Take it from someone who's been in a similar situation. Regardless of what he did, it's been ten years... get over it.
