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'm not a female you idiot. This recent post of yours proves my point about you being a complete moron. Seriously, your TMZ comments make no sense and your lack of intelligence is proven in every post you make. You can't even come up with intelligent dialog on the topic on hand, you just want trash other peoples comments because you a worthless troll with no thoughts of your own. Face it, its time to call your doctor and get your meds updated for your psychosis issues.

I'm saddened to hear that these two people who have been married 1/4 of their lives (if not more) are now throwing away those years of raising children and sharing the trials and triumphs that everyones life has. Sad for them as the future will not have them sharing all the joys of childrens marriages and grandchildren to share and enjoy together -
Yes of course if they are no longer happy together perhaps apart is the only choice but counselling is also a choice.
At their age and stage in life I'd hope they could find a compromise that would work for them.

I'm guessing she's less than happy at the legacy he left behind as Governor, and his current plans to resurrect his "action hero" film status, ala Stallone. She's very ambitious and driven politically, and his political career is now washed up. At this stage in their marriage, I doubt she's overly concerned about his adolescent womanizing.

Maybe she wants to move back to be closer to her family in Massachusetts and Arnold wants to stay in California to work on making movies. Or maybe she wants to get back into broadcasting after giving her support to Arnold while he was Governor. Or maybe Arnold really is a perv and she isn't going to be turn a blind eye to it any longer. Those are my 3 best guesses.

Yeah I find this sad as well. Didn't see it coming either. Not after these many years but I always did hear he liked the ladies. Sounds like when he left as governor, neither one knew what to do with themselves.
