Arnold Schwarzenegger and wife Maria Shriver have announced their separation after 25 years of marriage. The couple are living separately after Maria moved out of their Brentwood mansion a few weeks ago. They released a joint statement to the LA Times, saying:
This has been a time of great personal and professional transition for each of us. 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. We are continuing to parent our four children together. They are the light and the centre of both of our lives. We consider this a private matter and neither we nor any of our friends or family will have further comment. We ask for compassion and respect from the media and the public.
We wish them and their family the best for the future.
