The likely divorce of actor and former governor Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver may cost Schwarzenegger a near record $100-200 million dollars, making it one of the most expensive breakups of all time. The actor had a prenup agreement drawn up in 1986, however both the factors of the cheating as well as more than 25 years of marriage could pretty much gut the terms of the prenup and leave Arnold Schwarzenegger with a much lighter wallet according to family law experts.
There is a previous legal history of prenuptial agreements being thrown aside in divorce courts when factors such as cheating or a long marriage are factored in.
Arnold Schwarzenegger may learn one lesson from all of this: extramarital affairs aren’t too cheap when you’re a wealthy married celebrity. And although, the divorce settlement isn’t an amount quite big enough to bail out the state of California’s money problems if it went to that end, up to $200 million is nonetheless a staggering figure out of just one pocket……Arnold’s.
