Courteney Cox and David Arquette Following the announcement of their separation this week, Courteney Cox and David Arquette are attempting to figure out what's best for their relationship.

"We have agreed to a trial separation that dates back for some time. The reason for this separation is to better understand ourselves and the qualities we need in a partner and for our marriage," the couple said in a statement. "We remain best friends and responsible parents to our daughter and we still love each other deeply."

Following the announcement, Arquette revealed intimate details of the split to Howard Stern on his radio show Tuesday, telling listeners the couple hadn't had sex in months and that he has since been with another woman.
