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.

That's called menopause - and you need to only understand ONE WORD my friend.

And that word would be:

@chris:

My ex-father in law, German, was a decent man who worked very hard all of his life.

And his reward for providing for his rather large family???

When my ex-mother-in-law was done with sex and intimacy (more commonly known as menopause), he was banished to the ROOT CELLAR with a dirt floor, a moldy shower, a lumpy old couch to sleep on, and a 5 inch RCA color TV. The ceiling was so low that he could not stand up straight. He dutifully stayed in that cellar for decades and his FINAL reward is that he is now dying of brain cancer.

Like I said before - men these days will PUT A WOMAN OUT the moment she points to the cellar. And SO DID I.

RUN ARNOLD - RUN ! ! !

I'm guessing that now that Arnold is back in Hollywood making movies, he wants to sample some of the young starlets that are always looking to do anything to make it into movies.

I'll bet they've been separated in their minds and hearts since during his last years as Gov. He changed mid-stream there in his politics and it always felt like he was doing it to please others - probably her. Little did he know it was their differences that kept them together.

What a life mistake she made. She gave up her journalism career with NBC so he could run for governor and ruin the state of California.

Arnold has served his state and children honorably. At 63, he should be able to enjoy the fruits of his fame guilt free.
Enjoy Arnold!
