Is Maria Shriver reconsidering her decision to divorce Arnold Schwarzenegger?

TMZ reveals that Shriver, 52, is having second thoughts about splitting with her husband of 25 years.

Shriver’s Catholic religious beliefs, which do not include divorce, are playing a huge role in her reluctance to sign the divorce papers.

A source tells TMZ that Arnold, 64, isn’t making her decision any easier, purchasing his estranged wife lavish gifts and being “extremely sweet.”

A source close to the Shriver told People magazine that the duo recently spent Christmas together with their four children at the family home in Brentwood,California.

They “had a really nice time” celebrating the holiday and even attended the L.A. Lakers season opener together.

Shriver filed for divorce in July after it was discovered that Arnold fathered a secret child with their former maid, Mildred Beana.

The pair has been spotted out together on several occasions since then, including a dinner for Arnold’s birthday.

“Children and family come first,” a source told People. “Arnold and Maria will always come together when it comes to supporting and loving their children.”
