Former California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver have separated after 25 years of marriage, reports the Los Angeles Times.
Since the end of Schwarzenegger’s term as governor, the pair have appeared to be living separate lives, with Shriver guest editing an issue of Oprah Winfrey’s magazine and working on a women’s empowerment website, the article notes. Shriver, a former contributing anchor on NBC’s "Dateline," has been living apart from Schwarzenegger for a few weeks, the story adds.
In March, she told supporters through a YouTube video that she felt anxious about the next part of her life, noting "It is so stressful to not know what you’re doing next."
Schwarzenegger recently signed to star in three films, including another film in the "Terminator" franchise. The pair, who were introduced by NBC’s Tom Brokaw, have four children in ages from 14 to 21 years old.
In a statement issued to the Los Angeles Times, the pair said, "This has been a time of great personal and professional transition for each of us."
