Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver have announced they are separating.

They released a joint statement Monday night:

"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."

  • While I didn't see it, they were together for a long time. This makes me sad to read. They are trying to go about this with decorum. I hope it keeps up.
