Arnold Schwarzenegger Divorce from Maria Shriver? Split Confirmed, Divorce Pending

Arnold Schwarzenegger and his wife of over 25 years Maria Shriver have officially announced their split, although have not yet confirmed that they will divorce.

As it stands, Arnold and Maria are living in two separate places with the intent to parent their children (ages 14, 18, 20 and 21) together.

Their rep released this statement regarding the separation and potential divorce:

“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 center of both of our lives.”

And while the two have officially separated, the possibility of divorce is seemingly becoming more and more realistic.

I’ve personally seen this a thousand times before. Two people will stay in a marriage for the sake of their children and then, once the children are old enough to take care of themselves and move on with their lives, they will divorce.

Perhaps Arnold and Maria are the exception.

Were you shocked to hear about Arnold and Maria’s split?
