Much to absolutely no one's surprise, Maria Shriver and Arnold Schwarzenegger's 25-year marriage will soon be over. On Friday, Shriver filed for divorce citing irreconcilable differences. This, of course, follows news from over a month ago that Schwarzenegger had a long-running affair with the family's housekeeper and fathered the woman's now teenage son.

Both Shriver and Schwarzenegger had secured divorce attorneys early last month, so it really was a matter of time before one of them filed the paperwork. And since their kids are all adults or teenagers, it doesn't seem likely this divorce will turn into an ugly custody battle. With that said, though, we wonder how their assets be divided.

Since California is a 50/50 state and most of their kids are adults and Schwarzenegger has fessed up to being a liar and a cheat, we think this divorce settlement could end up being pretty cut and dry. However it plays out, though, we hope it's for the best for everyone, especially the poor kids (even the illegitimate one) caught in the middle. 10 Tips To Help Your Child Transition Through Divorce
