The Terminator "terminates" his marriage

Wow. One of the most powerful duos, Maria Shriver and Arnold Schwarzenegger, former Governor of California, call it quits. After 25 years of marriage, Shriver, 55, and Schwarzenegger, 63, decided to separate. They have reportedly been separated for weeks, but only made their split public on Monday, releasing a joint statement that said they were "amicably separating." Maria Shriver has been seen in the past couple of months without her wedding ring, raising questions.

“At this time, we are living apart while we work on the future of our relationship,” the statement reads. “We ask for compassion and respect from the media and the public.” If only that was possible. The media loves the fact that this legendary couple's relationship has failed. Their marriage proved that couples in Hollywood could challenge stereotypes and be powerful together.

Publically, their lives seemed to be picture perfect, but “This has been a time of great personal and professional transition for each of us,” the couple also said in the statement. Shriver, has experienced trauma and loss in recent years, with the death of numerous family members. After Schwarzenegger's run as Governor of California, he often claimed how he yearned to return to show business. This period of transition put a lot of stress on their seemingly perfect relationship. 

In a March 28th YouTube of Shriver, she said "It is so stressful to not know what you're doing next." This quote represented the stress and uncertainty of what is to come, which clearly contributed to the split.
“After a great deal of thought, reflection, discussion, and prayer, we came to this decision together.”
The couple has four children together, and they will continue to dedicate their lives to the well being of their kids.

Here is the full statement that was released on Monday:
"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. 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."
