The couple released a joint statement saying, "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."

The statement continues, "We are continuing to parent our four children together. They are the light and center of both of our lives."

The couple adds, "We consider this a private matter and neither we nor any of our friends or family will have further comment."

63-year-old Arnold and 55-year-old Maria met in 1977 when Tom Brokaw introduced them at a charity event. They were married in 1986.

First - Arnold may check Republican on the ballot, but anyone who follows politics or has a brain in their head, knows that Arnold is no Republican. Second - Anyone who would pardon a killer of one of his political cronies as a favor on his last day in office, has no character. Maria was smart to bail!

"After a great deal of thought, reflection, discussion and prayer,"????

Praying to who?

God NEVER would say seperate...He says JOINED together, let no man seperate...what he has joined together.

I really hate when people say after praying...we decided....!!!

Prayed to who I say???

An awful lot of smart-assed remarks but not a lot of sympathy for a long marriage in trouble. Hopefully they can work out whatever problems they have.

Sociopaths are Sad    

"We consider this a private matter...". Private between Ahnold, Maria, and all the women he has sexually assaulted and continues to sexually assault. He's a joke as a husband and he has two daughters too. He's infamous for coining the phrase "Eating isn't cheating" and he doesn't seem to have a conscience.

How pathetic that it took Maria 25 years of turning a blind eye until she finally found some self-respect. You know their kids who they claim are "the light and center of both of their lives" are completely effed up living in that misogynistic household.

I hope someone cuts Ahnold's member off - he disgusts me that much. And Maria I feel ABSOLUTELY NO SYMPATHY FOR.

I always thought they deserved each other. Maria is phony and Arnie is a pervert. Perfect match, imo.

I can't help but wonder which one is having the mid-life crisis. I hope they can get some counselling and work this out.

This just goes to show....that a woman who thinks she is in the clear of her husband cheating on her by marrying an older man is fooling herself. Because after a certain age, 8 years younger doesn't cut it anymore.....10 years younger doesn't cut it anymore....15 years younger doesn't cut it anymore. These dirty old men want someone young enough to be their GRANDDAUGHTER.

Paul McCartney just proposed to a woman 17 years younger although his first choice (the gimp) was more than 20 years younger. SMH. Why do women marry these losers?
