Danny DeVito and Rhea Perlman have separated, his rep confirms to Us Weekly.

The couple, who wed in 1982, have three children together: Lucy, 29, Grace, 27, and Jacob, 25.

The longtime pair seemingly had one of the strongest marriages in Hollywood, so this comes as quite the shock to many. Once asked what the secret to a happy union was, the Cheers alum summed it up simply, saying, "Love. I mean, really. [But] you know what? Who knows. The secret to success is to try to never figure that out."

The cause for separation has yet to be revealed.
