Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver separate

I’ve now completely lost faith in the institution of marriage, as I thought Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver would really be together forever, but it seems I was wrong.  The couple, who met in 1977 and married in 1986, recently announced that they would be separating after a quarter-century of marriage.

It sounds amicable on paper, but then again it always does – they say their top priority is the children, they want some time to reflect, blah blah blah… all of which means they will most likely be getting a divorce pretty soon.  I don’t think I’ve ever seen a celebrity separation that didn’t end in divorce.
