Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver Announce Split

This bit of news was a little shocking when I first heard it.
Former California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger and his wife of 25 years, Maria Shriver, have announced their separation publicly. They have said they will provide no further details on the matter, citing privacy and family concerns. They were married on April 26, 1986, but as their 25th anniversary just passed, there was no public mention of it. Shriver has moved out of the couple’s home in Brentwood, California.
The couple was a political oddity because Schwarzenegger is a Republican and Shriver is a part of the Kennedy clan of staunch Democrats. They were both stars in their own right before heading to the California statehouse. He was the “Terminator” movie star and she was a television journalist for NBC.
Rumors have surfaced at times of Schwarzenegger’s “wandering eyes and hands” when it kcomes to other women. No recent public incidents surround those rumors, though.
The couple have two sons and two daughters whom they will continue to raise together.
