Danny DeVito and Rhea Perlman are separating after 30 years of marriage.

The two married back in 1982 and have 3 children together.

DeVito (5'0") and Perlman (5'1") met in 1970 when Rhea went to see an off-Broadway play, The Shrinking Bride ... which featured Danny.

The two began dating soon after and lived together for 11 years before tying the knot.

A rep for the couple confirmed the split -- but has no further comment at this time.

41 years together. Awww, man. Couldn't they have stuck it out? That's so sad.

What a bummer to hear. I thought for sure that these two would be one of the few couples left on the planet that had a real shot at remaining married....forever.
Not possible anymore in the digital age. Hos ain't having one when they can be having three or four at the same time.

30 + 11, so 40+ years of togetherness and they just now decide they can't work it out -- that makes me sad.

Danny Devito has been drunk a number of times on television. His drinking had to have put a strain on the marriage.

If I can remember, Danny and Arnold are the best of friends. Now they can hang out together and find different women together to screw around with. Just saying.

WOW, this is way to long to bail on a marriage. They lasted this long why not just grow old together. Grass isnt always greener on the other side

I really hope this is just temporary, after this long, how could you be without the other person?

If they have spent that no. of years together, I doubt it is a painful divorce. I'm sure they will be close friends. Sometimes, a person just wants to enjoy life as a singleton before old age sets in.

I have a feeling its going to come out that he's an alcoholic and she didnt want to deal with his alcoholism anymore.
