Arnold Schwarzenegger and wife Maria Shriver separate after 25 years of marriage
Daily Mail ^ | 5-10-2011 | Daily Mail Reporter

Posted on 05/09/2011 9:26:14 PM PDT by Mountain Bike Vomit Carnage

Arnold Schwarzenegger and his wife Maria Shriver have announced they are separating after 25 years of marriage.

In a shock announcement the couple, who have four children together, released a joint statement saying they were living apart while they 'worked on the future' of their marriage.

Shriver helped bolster Schwarzenegger's campaign eight years ago to become California Governor.

She stood by the Terminator actor at the time amid claims he groped a string of women during his movie career.

The Los Angeles Times broke the story late on Monday night saying that Shriver is 'moving out of their Brentwood mansion while the two determine the next step in their 25-year marriage'.

The newspaper said Shriver has been living apart from the Terminator actor-turned-politician for the last few weeks.

The former First Couple confirmed their separation in a joint statement released on Monday night after questions were raised by The Times.

'This has been a time of great personal and professional transition for each of us, the statement read.

'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.'

He’s probably become too liberal for her.

Maria Shriver in happier times.

I guess Arnie used up all he needed from her political family and nhad to move on. Especially since Ted is dead.

I have to agree.
While I am no fan of Arnold Schwarzenegger nor Maria Shriver, I hate seeing long term marriages break up. I do find it interesting how so many do break up soon after a large changes in the family . Both good and bad changes

If SHE left the family home, he probably cheated on her IN it.

I do not like either of these creatures and I feel very sorry for the kids.

Guesses:

1) He's going to leave politics and is no more use to her

2) He's going to run for President (since Obama is not an NBC, why should the Governator hold back?) and she's dying of embarrassment.

Cheers!

There is no sadness in their marriage ending. I’m sure they are both celebrating.

What is sad is when you lose a spouse as a result of illness.

LOL. I remember when T3 came out and in the movie when Arnold as a Terminator arrives from the future and they had digitally placed his current face on a massively computer enhanced naked body that looked like him when he was 25 years old.
And Arnold was trying to claim in the interviews it was his real body and hadn’t been altered in anyway with technology.
That NOW picture came out soon after T3 and the National Equirer called him the “Tummynator”.

There must be another woman in the picture.

Maria is a devout Catholic, and would not separate for a frivolous reason.

It’s a shame what fame does to a family.

Most lib ‘devout’ Catholics are not so devout.

Peloski, That Guy Who Served in Vietnam, and the Kennedy’s are all examples.

Conservative Catholics tend to be more devout. Hannity, Laura Ingram, and Justice Thomas are examples.

I figure that Maria has been in charge for some time. She/they have finished the destruction of California so what is there left to do? I am very sorry to see a ‘long term’ marriage end. I hope their kids are strong enough to withstand the unhappiness.

What is sad is when you lose a spouse as a result of illness.

Losing a spouse is sad pretty no matter how it happens. They don't have to actually get sick and die. It still hurts.

I don't know about their marriage, but he was arguably one of the worst governors in the history of California.

I can't argue with that. I have seen the results of divorce, and it isn't very pretty. I understand where you are coming from.

Boo-fricken’-hoo. This couple were instrumental in running CA deeper into it financial disaster, he pardoned a known murderer for a political buddy (a democrat), raised all taxes in CA, created the Central Valley dust bowl, are firm Global warmers and so much more.

With out her, his hope for a job working for nObama is out. Without him she becomes a Democrat power similar to Hillary after the Billy-blob blue-dress-mess.
