    Default Captain & Tennille Divorcing: Love Won't Keep Us Together

    the song was wrong.

    Captain & Tennille Divorce -- Love WON'T Keep Us Together | TMZ.com

    CAPTAIN & TENNILLE


    DIVORCING

    Love WON'T Keep Us Together




    Say it ain't so ... there's no Muskrat Love left for Captain & Tennille ... they're getting divorced ... and the Captain tells TMZ he didn't see it coming.

    Toni (Tennille) filed legal docs in Arizona, claiming the marriage was "irretrievably broken." They've been married for 39 years.

    If you don't know ... you should. They had a string of hits in the 70s, including "Love Will Keep Us Together," "Muskrat Love" and "Do that to Me One More Time."

    They were discovered by Neil Sedaka at The SmokeHouse restaurant in Burbank, near NBC.

    Daryl Dragon (The Captain) is 71. Yeah, it's Dragon.

    Daryl tells TMZ ... "I don't know why she filed. I gotta figure it out for myself first." He also said they're still living together in the same house.

    According to the divorce docs, obtained by TMZ, there's special mention about health insurance coverage, and that seems relevant, because in 2009 Toni blogged that Daryl had been diagnosed with Parkinson's. In 2011 Toni updated the message, saying Daryl's tremors were so bad he was embarrassed to go out in public ... to restaurants, the movies, etc.

    Here's what's unclear -- whether it's possible Toni really filed for health insurance reasons ... whether his coverage might be better if they were divorced.

    The blog has an update on Jan 16, 2014, saying "The Captain & Tennille appeared to the public as them being the ideal model for a 'rock-solid' married pair. But almost all people naturally evolve over time, & sometimes hidden feelings start to be uncovered ..."

    It's a sad day for muskrats.

    She must have called him "Muskrat Sam" one too many times.

    Or she said "DON'T you dare do that to me one more time" and he did anyway.

    The jokes just write themselves, folks.

    It's curious that they mentioned the possibility of the divorce being for health insurance coverage reasons. When my sister was first diagnosed with ALS, she did not have medical insurance and didn't qualify for Medicaid because my BIL had his own business, even though he wasn't really profiting from it. They ended up filing for a legal separation and my sister moved in with her oldest daughter, and then she qualified for assistance. The person who helped my sister for aid even told my niece my sister would qualify for more cash aid if my niece charged her "rent"...

    I just read she said he has a neurological illness similar to Parkinsons but not Parkinsons.

    I remember the song 'love will keep us together' played over the PA system in elementary school during morning announcements for the start of the day desk stretch. So completely random but that's my association with C&T. I sincerely hope it isn't over insurance coverage.. That would be horrifying to have split after decades due to cost of care.
