Trumps Announce They’re Separating

Associated Press

There was the affair, the divorce, the baby and the wedding, in that order. And now, Donald Trump and trophy wife Marla Maples announced they have reached the end.

The couple announced their decision Friday in a two-sentence statement:

“After a long relationship and a 3-1/2-year marriage, we have decided to separate, as friends. For the sake of our family, we ask that the members of the media will accept this statement, respect our privacy and move on to coverage of more important issues at this time.”
