The bigger they are, the harder they fall.

Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver, an odd yet powerful couple if there ever was one, revealed Monday that they have separated after 25 years of marriage.

"This has been a time of great personal and professional transition for each of us," the duo said in a joint statement. "After a great deal of thought, reflection, discussion and prayer, we came to this decision together. At this time, we are living apart while we work on the future of our relationship."

So there's a chance they may avoid total termination?
