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.

If it's such a "Private matter" Why tell the world then? We really don't give a rats ass about if they stay together or not. These two clowns are soooooo over rated it's pathetic. Just Saying...

Soon we will hear about a new girlfriend. The marriage was a shame probally for years. He is s*** and she is a loser. However, he already has someone. They will get divorced - however for the kids and Maria - they are making sound like the both are working on the marriage. The marriage has been dead for a long time. Look at her cousin - she is a drunk and has a boyfriend on the side. They live lives that are fake because the Catholics do not believe in divorce. How insane.

Why is it that women leave successful men ONLY after their time is up? Why not leave them when they are at their prime?

the problem is she can,t understand him , she is too smart for him, he will probably write a book or go on talk shows, hope the shows have close captions, i never can understand what he is saying, he is a player, hope the kids are allright,they don,t deserve the mess their father dished on them.

Who knows what she EVER saw in Arnold, but for the sake of their children only, I hope they can work it out. But for the record, Arnold is extremely unattractive and seems to be a bit of a jerk.
