Arnold Schwarzeneger And Maria Shriver Reconciling?

May 22nd, 2013 7:07pm EDT
Maria Shriver and Arnold Schwarzenegger
Rumors are spreading that Arnold Schwarzeneger and Maria Shriver are getting back together, and for good reason - the couple hasn't officially filed for divorce.

Despite the married couple breaking up in 2011 over the former California governor's marital indiscretions that led to an illegitimate love child, neither Arnold nor Maria has gone to court and asked for a judge to make it official.

There are two theories as to why: For one, TMZ reports the two have already agreed to evenly split their $400 million net worth, so neither of them is in a rush to grab the other's money. The other th...

Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver
Arnold Schwarzenegger is fighting to save his marriage to Maria Shriver, according to an interview he had with German newspaper Bild.

Danny DeVito, Rhea Perlman & 5 Other Longtime Famous Couples Who Split Up

October 8th, 2012 6:00pm EDT
Danny DeVito & Rhea Perlman
The news that Danny DeVito, 67, and Rhea Perlman, 64, split after a staggering 30 years together shocked fans around the world this morning. The couple, who have three children together, met after Rhea saw the actor in a play in 1971. They got married in 1982.

No reason was given for the split, but according to AARP, extramarital affairs for people 45 and older are relatively rare. So the odds that Danny or Rhea met someone else is likely not the cause of their break up.

Some relationships just fizzle out over time. Sometimes a couple's personal issues intensify. Most typically, a husband...
