Schwarzenegger, Shriver Announce Separation

Arnold Schwarzenegger has announced that he and his wife of 25 years, Maria Shriver are separating.

A spokesman for the actor and former California governor issued a statement announcing the news Monday night.

The statement from Schwarzenegger and Shriver says that after "a great deal of thought, reflection, discussion and prayer," they decided to live apart while they work on the future of their relationship.

They acknowledge that they're both going through a "time of great personal and professional transition." Both will continue to parent their four children together.

Schwarzenegger finished his second term as governor in January and has been on the speech circuit and pursuing various entertainment projects. Shriver was a correspondent for NBC News when she left to fulfill her role as First Lady.

      I guess I do. These celebrities are thrown in our faces constantly. I applaud couples in this generation who stay together because look at all the other junk that is displayed. Whether we as a society like it or not, our young people do model their behavior after the stars. This was one couple who I thought and respected for staying together as long as they have with all the pressures that where surely in their lives.
