Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver have decided to split after 25 years of marriage. The couple have 4 children together, but itÂ seemsÂ there have been problems for a while now.
â€œThis has been a time of great personal and professional transition for each of us,” they say. “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,” they continue. “We are continuing to parent our four children together. They are the light and the center of both of our lives.â€¨â€¨”
According to TMZ, Maria had been unhappy for a long time,
Maria Shriver has been “miserable” in her marriage for a long, long time, sources connected with the couple tell TMZ … and it’s all about Arnold Schwarzenegger’s “craziness.”
We’re told Maria moved out of the couple’s L.A. mansion months ago. Sources tell us she’s been extremely unhappy in her marriage for years, complaining about Arnold’s out of control ego, as well as his womanizing.
We’re also told Maria feels Arnold has ignored her for years and she’s felt terribly unappreciated.
Sources say the couple has spent “very little time together” for several years. Maria was frequently absent from Sacramento while Arnold was Governor.
The situation got worse once Arnold left office and decided he wanted to resurrect his movie career. Maria felt Arnold was becoming more erratic — more “unstable.”
Our sources say Maria’s religious views caused her deep distress over whether to split and/or divorce. As one source put it: “She’s been a lost soul for a long time.”
