Arnie terminates own marriage

Hasta la Vista baby.

Arnold Schwarzenegger really is the Terminator, he can terminate his marriage in what I am guessing took about 30 seconds.

I hope Maria Shriver kicked him out on his butt, slapped him in the face, yelled at him and said, "You won't be back."

My belief is that cheating men and women always want what they can't have.

It all comes down to the chase and if they have the ability to seduce the one they have their eyes on.

To be blunt, Arnie is just one of the many blokes who choose to think with their little head rather than their big head.

Cheating is one of those things that I have never really understood.  Not only is it selfish and and greedy, when it happens the cheater doesn't think about the person they are hurting.

A cheater is hoping to disguise its spots and pray for dear life that they are not exposed.

But that is the beauty of karma, in the end the truth always comes out.

In today's day and age finding someone you care about and are compatible with is not always easy.

So why would you take all that for granted just so you can get your skank on and your rocks off?

Arnie lay in someone else's bed so now he is making his bed in the dog house - fitting since his spots now have an itch.

How did the world not know Arnold Schwarzenegger, the Governator, had a love child?

It was pretty widely known about when it happened in the '90s, and the resulting documentary, Junior, was even given a box office movie release.

But seriously, if you squint hard enough at the pictures on the news, the lady he allegedly had this love child with could pass as Danny DeVito.

Big Arnie isn't the first bloke in power to be caught out having an affair, and he won't be the last.

Why do we blokes, when some of us get to positions of power, think that we can shag around without being caught out?

I'll never support blokes cheating on their partners (hello, my dear wife) but if you are going to take the huge risk of having an affair, at least have a mistress who is better looking than your wife. Maria Shriver, Arnie's wife before walking out on him this week, is intelligent, good looking and successful in her own right.

So why did he do it? Why does it seem every second guy does it? I'm no psychologist, but I imagine it feeds their addiction to power.

Sadly, while we've evolved from gorillas to the amazing creatures we are today, it seems some parts of the male brain are still stuck in primate mode. Until that changes, expect to see even more cheating husbands being caught out.
