After ten years of litigation since the breakup of bodybuilder, actor and former Governor of California Arnold Schwarzenegger and the niece of the 35th President of the United States John F. Kennedy, journalist Maria Shriver in 2011, the court decided to equally divide the property of $ 400 million, as well as all the income of the former spouse, including his pension payments. It is clarified that in the calculations, only the time that the couple lived in marriage, that is, from 1986 to 2011, was taken into account.
