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.

When you are as rich as he is why would you want to married to an old Kennedy? Time to trade her in for a newer model.

Feel sorry for the kids....yet jubilant for Maria. He's always been crass.

Expect to see him act like the bad cops listed at www.familylawcourts.com

Because that's his mentality.

It's about time. She's the more intelligent of the two, by far, and I wouldn't be surprised if this had been brewing for a long time. Maybe that explains the cellphone and red zone faux pas.

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

Uhm...Mason, you do know where you are right? A GOSSIP SITE...Did you stumble onto TMZ by mistake?

Sociopaths are Sad    

@Mason H: "...at least the kids won't want for anything..."---------> yeah, except for self-esteem. Low self-esteem is a killer which has left kids not "wanting for anything" wanting for destructive substances. SO MANY examples of this.

Bottom line, shame you're an idiot who thinks cash is king and are oblivious to how a misogynistic marriage affects EVERYONE in the family. SMH.

OooooNooo!    

This is the same headline we will be reading as soon as Hillery leaves office. She puts up with his sex addiction just to stay in power -- as soon as the ride is over its splits-ville, and frankly, Billy Boy will be happier, don;t you think?

Just a matter of the need for Arnold's political correctness being over. He no longer needs to look like a good family man now that's he's no longer governor. He thinks he's going right back to his action hero movie career, 20 million dollar paydays, and all the gold-digging whores he can handle...so why would he stay with the female version of Skeletor? He's an ass, of course, but just keeping it real. Seriously, that pic of her is going to give me nightmares tonight.

Really, it's sad. After 25 years together it must be a really hard choice to make.

I'm surprised it lasted as long as it did. They have nothing in common. She's looking like an old lady so he's no longer interested, esp. now that he doesn't need her to legitimize his governorship anymore. She's going to be traded in for a younger model. Mark my words. She was stupid for marrying that lewd, juiced up, cigar breath dumbass so I have no sympathy for her either.
