SHOCKED

Danny DeVito
and Rhea Perlman's split didn't just come as a surprise to their fans ... it also blindsided their close friends -- including "Cheers" actor John Ratzenberger, who claims he had NO IDEA the famed couple was calling it quits.

Ratzenberger -- who played Cliff on the 80s sitcom alongside Rhea -- said he just saw his old co-star the other day and she didn't even suggest things were going south with her husband of 30 years.

Ratzenberger could hardly believe the news about the spit, saying simply, "That's sad."

I read an article that said Danny had a wandering eye, and that ended the marriage...who'd a thunk it.

They have their reasons why so respect them.
Look at it as a stepping stone to try even harder to make your marriage work.
I for one take my marriage vows very seriously and wake up everyday to make my BEAUTIFUL, LOVING, SWEET, KIND, BEST FRIEND, SOULMATE, LOVER, WIFE,
FEEL SPECIAL AND WANTED AND ALWAYS TELL HER HOW MUCH I LOVE HER
AND HOW HAPPY MY HEART FEELS THAT SHE CAME INTO MY LIFE AND BECAME MY WORLD.
Look at things that you can do better ( man or woman) to show your spouse how much you love them and care.
Always have love, trust, comunication and never go to bed at night mad at each other.
Talk things out COMUNICATION IS THE KEY TO ALL LONG LASTING MARRIAGE ALONG WITH WANTING THE SAME THINGS IN LIFE.

I really lost hope on lasting marriage. I thought they would last forever. Like they say, nothing last's forever.

When you spend 30 years of your life with someone why on earth would you end it. Do you think there is something better on the horizon? Save abuse, why would you turn your back?

Danny Devito and Rhea Perlman have a fight. Devito tries to punch Rhea right on her nose. Some guy says "You wouldn't hit a woman!" Devito says: "THAT'S A WOMAN?!"
