Arnold and Maria split: Former Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver to Separate

I’m amazed they lasted this long…

And it’s sad to see them split after this much time together…

Still, I can’t help but think how much Maria gave up–her career, for one thing– for Arnold.

She also is the one who gave him gravitas…

He wouldn’t have been governor without her…

I’ll be interested to see what she does with the next chapter of her life…

Him?  I don’t care too much…

Former Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and his wife, Maria Shriver, have separated, with Shriver moving out of their Brentwood mansion while the two determine the next step in their 25-year marriage.

Shriver has been residing apart from the actor-turned-politician for the last few weeks. The former first couple confirmed the separation in a joint statement released Monday after questions were raised by The Times.

“This has been a time of great personal and professional transition for each of us,” the statement read. “After a great deal of thought, reflection, discussion and prayer, we came to this decision together. At this time, we are living apart while we work on the future of our relationship.

“We are continuing to parent our four children together. They are the light and the center of both of our lives.” We consider this a private matter and neither we nor any of our friends or family will have further comment. “We ask for compassion and respect from the media and the public.”
