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.

Did he cheat on her? Or did she just come to her senses: "Oh my god, you're a Republican!!"

The guy was known for feeling up random women...he is an embarrassment to his family when it comes to be a dirty old man.

I think it's because he had to keep giving her crap because TMZ kept catching her driving while on her cell phone and parking in red zones. haha

Q    

He never gave up the groping. He's a bona fide groper---always has been. Kind of the norm for European men of that age. Doesnt match her "women of empowerment" movement much now does it? She's out advocating for womens rights and he's grabbing everything near him.

Oprah, maybe you should get Maria for an OWN segment or something.

Uhm...I think the story "Developed" already, and they apparently will not be commenting further.

But hey! This is TMZ! I'm thinking there will be more to come right? Somebody's been a bad little boy :)
