(LOS ANGELES) — Maria Shriver and Arnold Schwarzenegger’s marriage may not be terminated after all. Sources tell TMZ that Shriver is having doubts about pursuing the divorce she filed on July 1.
According to the source, Shriver is torn because her strong Catholic beliefs do not recognize divorce. And to make things even more complicated, Schwarzenegger desperately wants Shriver back, and has reportedly been “extremely sweet” to her since their split, giving her several gifts.
Indeed, the couple spent Christmas together with their children Katherine, Christina, Patrick, and Christopher and “had a really nice time,” reports People. The family was also spotted at a Los Angeles Lakers game.
The couple had been married for 25 years prior to their split in May following Schwarzenegger’s revelation that he fathered a child with his housekeeper.
