Looks like Arnold Schwarzenegger still feels guilty over the end of his 25 year marriage to ex Maria Shriver. According to RadarOnline, the ex-governor is prepared to give his ex a hefty settlement in the divorce, much more than is required under California state law. Both Schwarzenegger and Shriver’s lawyers seem to be getting along and are working together to come to a joint settlement. Schwarzenegger said he is the one to blame for the collapse of his marriage, and he is willing to give Shriver whatever she needs. He’s also filing for joint custody of the couple’s sons, which is a decision Shriver agrees with because she still wants her ex to remain a major part of their children’s lives. It’s so sad to see the end of such a seemingly perfect marriage, but at least the pair are putting their differences aside to do what is best for their children and themselves.
How do you show your ex that you still care?
It’s tough to show your ex that you still care about him or her whether you went through a rough break-up or even a major divorce. Luckily, Cupid has some tips on how to show your ex that you still care:
1. Admit you’re wrong: By standing up and realizing you messed up and taking responsibility for what happened, you show your partner that you not only feel horrible for what you did, but also that you do care about him or her and his or her feelings. If you and your ex aren’t on speaking terms, take a tip from “Mr. Big” in Sex and the City the movie and write a letter to your ex to express how you feel.
2. Make it up: You can’t fix what’s already broken, but you can do the next best thing and try to make the best out of the situation. Take a tip from Arnold Schwarzenegger and be willing to give a little extra in the divorce settlement.
3. Be happy for your ex: Don’t try to get in the way of your ex’s happiness. Allow him or her to move on. By doing this, it shows you care and there are no hard feelings between the two of you.
