Maria Shriver files for divorce

Los Angeles (CNN)– Maria Shriver cited "irreconcilable differences" in a petition filed Friday to dissolve her 25-year marriage to former California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger.

The move comes more than a month after Schwarzenegger acknowledged that he fathered a child outside of his marriage.

    "And Sarai Abram's wife took Hagar her maid the Egyptian, after Abram had dwelt ten years in the land of Canaan, and gave her to her husband Abram to be his wife." Genesis 16:3

    I'm not married because I don't belive in monogamy. I feel it's a man made notion that sounds noble & romantic in theory, but is too difficult & unrealistic in practice. What is the percentage of successful monogamous marriages of the last decade? If I go by the media, my family, friends & neighbors, it's pretty darn low! Having said that, if you & your spouse have made the choice to be monogamous, it should be strived for by honor. Otherwise your word means nothing. If you do go astray, discretion is paramount & you never, ever make a child with your lover! That is a grievance for the child, the child(ren) of your marriage, your spouse, your lover(& possible partner) & even yourself. So much upheaval for an indiscretion. Is it worth it? Maria Shriver doesn't think so, & many people agree with her, as I do. Good Luck to her & her family!!
