It looks like love didn’t keep them together. 1970s singing duo the Captain & Tennille are headed for divorce, according to a Jan. 22 report from People.

Singer Toni Tennille, 73, whose real name is Cathryn Antoinette Tennille, filed for divorce in Arizona after 39 years of marriage to “Captain” Daryl Dragon, 71.

The Grammy-winning couple shot to fame in 1974 with their singles ‘Love Will Keep Us Together” and “Muskrat Love.” During the height of heir fame, the couple even starred on an ABC variety show and hosted several networks specials.

Toni Tennille’s official website reveals that she and her husband purchased a piece of property in Prescott, Arizona and built their "last dream house" in 2007. “Prescott is where they plan to spend the rest of their lives,” the website reads.

In 2010, Tennille made several posts on her blog referencing her husband’s health issues.

“[Daryl] is dealing with a neurological condition (not Parkinsons, but something similar) that causes him to have tremors...pretty severe at times.... that interfere with his ability to play keyboards,” she wrote. She also revealed that his condition is “exacerbated by any kind of stress, and worrying about his ability to play has made his condition worse.”

The Dragons have no children.
