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.

I've always got the sleazebag vibe from him and I won't be surprised if some women come out claiming affairs and children.

I lost all respect for AS when he pulled that last minute pardon for dollars.

Dude reminds me of a little larger version of Jessie James...trashy, rich and married up.

She held it together until he was out of office. He's been a philanderer for years. Good for her.

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.
===========================================================

Well it would be considered a mid-life crisis if he were mid life, but seeing as he's 64 years old? He's about 3/4 of the way done...nothing like a dirty old man huh?.

Could she be as disgusted with him as the rest of us are? Californians are revolted at the way Schwarzenegger reduced the sentence of Esteban Nunez, imprisoned son of a political "buddy," Fabian Nunez. Life's been good to Arnold -- too good, maybe. He's now getting some misery -- just for balance. Karma rules!

It's interesting to see how so many people here are taking the opportunity of the possible divorce of a couple who've been married for 25 years as the time to spew they're jealous and apparently man hatting rhetoric through those vomit spewing holes they call mouths.
No one and I repeat no one other than Arnold and Maria know exactly what the cause of this separation is. It's easy to speculate when it's someone else. Even easier when it's someone who's rich and famous and has things we never will because the sad truth is it's human nature to gloat when others hurt because for the weak of mind and soul it's a quick pick me up where they can say "sh*t at least my life isn't that bad, see money and fame can't buy you everything!"

Remember they both walked down that aisle and they both said "I do, for better or for worse". Neither one of them were confused as to whom they were marrying and Arnold was famous from stories about his sexist ways long before they ever began dating.

Bottom line, I hope things work out for them one way or another. It's always sad to see a family destroyed because the parents aren't mature enough to work things out. It appears Arnold and Maria are handling this in a very mature manner and at least the kids won't want for anything regardless of how this turns out.
