Mathew John Dowd is no doubt a respected man in the journalistic sector who is looked up by many as a source of inspiration. However, Mathew's personal life seems quite contrary to his career now. He faced two broken marriages in the past, and his present relationship with Maria Scheiver also hasn't seen progress due to her conflicts over divorce with husband, Arnold Schwarzenegger. 

Career and Progression:

Mathew John Dowd is an American Political Consultant working as the political analyst at the ABC News. He received the opportunity to ally as the Chief Strategist for the Bush-Cheney 2004 presidential campaign. 

The reporter began his career as the member of Democrat U.S. Senator Lloyd Bentsen’s staff, but his interest in politics developed at the age of twelve while hearing the Watergate Committee.

How Much is Mathew’s Net Worth?

Mathew's extensive experience as a political consultant and guru makes it evident that he has summed a substantial net worth in millions figure. He has stayed mum regarding his earnings and salary, but he surely lives a well-settled life. 

Dating Arnold Schwarzenegger's Wife?

Mathew has become paparazzi's favorite ever since he was rumored of dating the wife of Arnold Schwarzenegger, Mariah Shriver. The couple was first spotted together at a dinner party organized on the occasion of her return to 'The Today Show' in 2013. 

Mathew and his girlfriend, Maria, who filed for divorce from Arnold six years ago, has been seen together in several events and casual dates since the day. In May 2016, the duo was seen strolling together around Brentwood, Los Angeles.

Unfolding His Previous Relationship Details!

Mathew experienced two dysfunctional relationships finally before starting an affair to Mariah. He hasn't revealed much about his first wife, but he did mention somewhere that he has two sons (one named Daniel) from her. 

Speaking of his second marriage, differences started clouding the married life of Mathew and ex-wife, Nikki after their twin daughter died during the premature evacuation. Their other daughter, Josephine did survive the incident, but that couldn't calm the storm in their relationship. 

Besides, considering his two broken marriages and a budding dating affair, it becomes evident that Mathew isn't a gay but a straight man.
