Schwarzenegger to keep home after divorce

Maria Shriver is packing her bags while Arnold Schwarzenegger will keep the couple’s Brentwood, California, home in the aftermath of their divorce, according to multiple reports.

While figuring who will keep the house is often a contentious part of a divorce settlement, both parties have reportedly been amicable. Shriver is purchasing a new $10 million home three miles away from Schwarzenegger in order to make the transition easier for their children.

Shriver filed for divorce from the former California governor early this month after 25 years of marriage. The proceedings began two months after allegations surfaced of Schwarzenegger’s affair with a household employee. In addition, Schwarzenegger fathered a child with the woman more than 10 years ago.

Shriver cited irreconcilable differences for the split and has reportedly requested custody of the pair’s two minor children Patrick, 17, and Christopher, 13.

The couple, who are worth an estimated $400 million, do not have prenuptial agreement. Under California’s Community Property law, their assets must be divided evenly during their split. However, RadarOnline reports that Schwarzenegger plans to give Shriver a “generous” settlement regardless of the state law.
