Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver split

Los Angeles (CNN) - Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver announced Monday that they are "amicably separating," but there was no mention of divorce in their joint statement.

Confirmation of their split came just two weeks after their 25th anniversary and four months after Schwarzenegger left the California's governor's office.

"This has been a time of great personal and professional transition for each of us," their statement said. "After a great deal of thought, reflection, discussion, and prayer, we came to this decision together."

The statement did not reveal when the separation began, but Shriver, 55, was not wearing her wedding band in a video posted on YouTube two weeks ago.

"At this time, we are living apart, while we work on the future of our relationship," they said.

Schwarzenegger, 63, has been busy reviving his acting career and signing movie deals - including another installment of his "Terminator" series.

  1. Christina,

    It sad to hear about them splitting. I've heard that people shouldn't make any major changes or decisions for at least a year or two after losing someone. Didn't Maria lose one of her parents recently? I hope they can work things out; they seemed so happy. I wish them both well for their sake and their children.
