What Cost Infidelity? Observations From A California Certified Family Law Specialist On the Schwarzenegger/Shriver Drama

The headlines around the world this week are sharing details of the secret child born to Arnold Schwarzenegger. The media coverage is relentless. This media pursuit is far from unique to Arnold Schwarzenegger and his wife Maria Shriver. It is also regularly seen with other high-profile celebrity couples. It is easy to recall the international media circus surrounding the Tiger Woods / Elin Nordegren and Jesse James / Sandra Bullock divorces. These voyeuristic forays capitalize on our common human interest in the sordid. This almost desperate need of our society to want to learn details of the private lives of the celebrity has certainly reached a frenzied pitch. The news of the "event," the word Schwarzenegger used to describe his actions leading to his 14 year-old-child born out of wedlock to the family's former housekeeper, herself married at the time she became pregnant, has the media clamoring. Schwarzenegger's scandal has reached a new zenith in public media scolding, most likely due to the particulars of his situation: his role as entertainment superstar, his role as former Governor of the State of California, and his marriage into the Kennedy family.
