You may have heard the news: Maria Shriver and Arnold Schwarzenegger are separating. After spending over two decades being one of California's top couples, what went wrong? Here are 10 reasons Maria should leave:
She Doesn't Want To Be A Cartoon Character
All the personal elements of Schwarzenegger's life will be used in "The Governator," the animated TV show and comic book series under development. (The Governator, in case you didn't know, is Schwarzenegger's superhero alter-ego.)
"We're using his wife," co-creator Stan Lee reported to Entertainment Weekly. "We're using his kids."
Said Arnold, "It will be a big surprise for Maria." Just not a good one.

She's Afraid Of Weird Changes To Their Brentwood Home
In the cartoon, The Governator decides to become a crime fighter after leaving office and builds a secret high-tech crime-fighting center under his house in Brentwood. A little too close to home? Wait, it IS home.
She Can't Stand Living With A Cyborg
Schwarzenegger has been planning to restart his film career with another Terminator movie (Number 5).
She Never Wanted Her Husband To Be A Politician
Arnold announced his run for public office on the Jay Leno show without telling Maria first. Neither she nor their kids wanted him to be a candidate.

She's More Than Just A Kennedy Relative
Maria's links to the Kennedys did more for Arnold in movies, media, and politics than Arnold ever did for her (other than co-creating four children).
She'd Like To Be A Reporter Again
Maria had to leave NBC when Arnold became a political candidate.
She Can't Stand His Hair Color
It's time for Arnold to be dignified and go gray or find a new color instead of that weird reddish hue. Really, Arnold? Really?

She Knows The Truth Of "Once A Cheater, Always A Cheater"
The trauma of infidelity is inescapable for a truly loving wife. When Arnold threw his hat in the ring in 2003, a number of women claimed they'd either been seduced or sexually harassed by him. In September 2010 a report surfaced of Arnold caught on tape cheating on his wife at a private party at the Playboy Mansion.
She's Sick Of Macho Posturing
Arnold's first post-politics film role title is a reflection of his whole personality - too much macho, whereas Maria is dedicated to women's issues and has been exemplary as a wife, daughter, mother, sister, and extended family member.
