Maria has been linked with Matthew since 2006, when she was still married, according to insiders.
She was even accused of playing the victim while she was the true perpetrator.
When Maria chose to quit the relationship and come clean, rumors about her engagement to
Matthew began to circulate.
Maria declared in 2017 that she was unmarried and ready to date.
Maria may have been trying to imply that she was single from the moment of her separation from her ex-husband,
but she could not hide the fact that everybody knew about her secret affair.
Maria’s Surprising Good Terms With Former Husband
Maria was married to the 70 years old Austrian-American actor Arnold Schwarzenegger for more than two decades.
The couple was first introduced to each other by NBC’s Tom Brokaw in 1977 at a charity tennis tournament and later started dating.
After being in a relationship for nearly nine years, they tied the knot at St. Francis Xavier Catholic Church in Hyannis on 26 April 1986.
They share two daughters and two sons; Katherine, Christina, Patrick, and Christopher.
Maria was also the First Lady from 2003 to 2011 when Arnold was serving as the Governor of California.
But their relationship turned sour after Maria became aware that her husband had cheated on her and even fathered an illegitimate son,
Joseph, from his extra-marital affair with the couple’s housekeeper, Mildred Baena.
Though the pair parted their ways, they haven’t divorced legally.
However, insiders reveal that Mariah filed for divorce right after their separation, but Arnold keeps on delaying it.
Some sources reasoned the couple’s dispute regarding the distribution of Arnold’s $400 million
Worth of property for the delay while others believe Mariah’s religious belief of not wanting to end the sacred bond of marriage as the reason.
Whichever the reason is, the couple holds no bad blood and still see each other on different occasions.
One such instance is when Maria and Arnold celebrated their 68th birthday together on 30 July 2015.
Moreover, the former couple reunited on the red carpet at the premiere of National Geographic’s The Long Road Home in late October 2017.
Even their children joined them and posed together for some clicks.

Post-separation, Maria seems to be single while Arnold started dating the 43 years old physical therapist Heather Milligan.
Fresno Country Impressed Maria; How?
Apart from the marital cliche, Maria is living a life in honor. She is an influential advocate regarding women’s equity.
From running an ‘Anti-Alzheimer’s Campaign to attending a conference concerning women, she has it in her activism.
For an all-time feminist, seeing females reach significant positions is always a big excitement and so it was for Maria when she visited one of California’s largest cities,
Fresno Country for a women’s conference in September 2018.
From being greeted by a welcoming woman sheriff to being driven to the venue by a lady Limo driver,
she saw the women empowerment that the country has. She didn’t miss out on admitting the influence.
We’re at a time when we’re all here to rise, and we can all be the change we envision for ourselves.
And she reminded me of why I’m here, and why I picked myself back up again,
so I just wanted to shout her out.
Hope we will get to see her revolutionary part bringing constructive changes in the years to come.
