Love can't keep them together: in their 70s, Captain and Tennille head for divorce

The Captain and Tennille are heading for divorce.

Court documents filed by Toni Tennille in Arizona say that her marriage to Daryl Dragon is irretrievably broken and cannot be reconciled. The couple have been married for more than 38 years.

The popular 1970s pop duo's hits include Love Will Keep Us Together, which earned a Grammy for Record of the Year in 1975.

Tennille and Dragon retired to Prescott in 2008. Their website hints at divorce, saying people evolve over time and hidden feelings are uncovered.

Tennille's lawyer declined to comment.

Tennille is 73 and Dragon is 71. They have no children together.
