I just don’t understand why people give up on a marriage after working on it for 25 years! That seems like such a long time.

It is a sad news. I hope both of you have thought through that what worked for last 25 years which is not working right now.

If you'd do it all again, that shows some deep love. Then why not work it out and keep your commitment to each other?
