There are certain deal breakers in a marriage. One of the biggies? If your spouse not just cheats on you but also has a child with their lover. That is a pretty good motive to hire a lawyer and kick your hubby to the curb. And that’s just what Maria Shriver did.
When it was announced that Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver broke up, many wondered why. But now that we know that it was the result of Arnold having a baby outside of his marriage with a trusted and close member of their household staff.
But Arnold is not alone, there are other marriages that have ended due to news of a love child being born. Who else’s marriages were ruined by such betrayals?
One of the most infamous and scandalous cases in recent memory was the case of John Edwards having a child with Rielle Hunter. The news wasn’t just devastating to his political career but also to his marriage.
Matthew and Tina Knowles were once a united front in supporting daughter Beyonce’s career. That is until news that Mathew not only had an affair but had a love child with a woman he had been seeing for 18 months.
But then there are the marriages that survive the news of such betrayal. Gordon Getty had a whole second family of three daughters with a woman in Los Angeles. But his marriage to Ann Getty survived the scandal.
If your spouse had a secret love child, is there any way you could forgive them?
