Arnold has a different take on the divorce.

During an interview with CNN back in 2015 – merely a year after their divorce – Schwarzenegger said that he viewed the divorce as “one of the biggest setbacks and biggest failures” of his life.

Thankfully for him, the divorce did nothing to harm the relationship he continues to enjoy with the four children he and Shriver have together. He said the main key to that was keeping an open line of communication with them throughout and after the process.
