Splitting up. After more 25 years of marriage -- Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver announced their separation. E! News Now
MELANA SCANTLIN: “In a joint statement, the power couple have announced they are splitting. ‘After a great deal of thought, reflection, discussion, and prayer, we came to this decision together. At this time we are living a part as we work on the future of our relationship’. Maria reportedly moved out of the couple’s So Cal mansion a few weeks ago.”
For some - the news comes as a complete shock. Gossip blogger Perez Hilton writes...
“We did not see that one coming!”
And a writer for OK! Weekly shares disbelief... “When it comes to celebrity marriages, surpassing five or even 10 years is a milestone but 25? Fughettaboutit.”
Though the couple’s announcement blindsided some - The Today Show says Maria has been dropping hints for the past few months...
ANCHOR: “The couple has reportedly been separated for weeks. Video of Shriver showed her again without her wedding ring. And two months ago on YouTube she posted a video talking openly about transitions.”
MARIA SHRIVER: “It is so stressful to not know what you are doing next. How did you find your transition? Personal, professional, emotional, spiritual, financial. How did you get through it?”
And according to TMZ -- Shriver might have been considering divorce for as long as two years.
“Maria Shriver has been deciding whether to DIVORCE Arnold Schwarzenegger since 2009 ... but sources with direct knowledge tell TMZ, she's been ‘extremely conflicted.’ … Our source tells us Maria is fed up with Arnold's infidelities ... coupled with the fact he's been ‘impossible’ to live with.”
Whether you saw this split coming - a blogger for Forbes says the overall reaction online from the public is one of support for the couple...
“Reactions on Twitter this morning echo surprise and sadness. On Facebook, a flood of fans offered their blessings and good wishes. Unlike most marriages in the limelight, many believed theirs had been sturdier.”
As of now - the two have not revealed plans for divorce - so will Ahnold be back or is this the end of days for the two?
