The popular 1970s husband-and-wife singing duo are getting a divorce.

Every captain needs a tennille. But what if the co-captain decides to call it quits? According to RumorFix, the Grammy Award-winning 1970s singing duo, Captain & Tennille, are getting a divorce.

Toni Tennille filed a divorce against her partner Daryl Dragon on January 16,  she told RumorFix.

The 71-year old Daryl Dragon, popularly known as the "Captain," also confirmed the divorce to TMZ. Apparently Daryl had no idea that Toni was planning to file a divorce.

"I don't know why she filed.  I gotta figure it out for myself first," he told TMZ.

People was also able to confirm the filing at the Prescott, Arizona City courthouse.

Captain & Tennille recorded five albums all in all, which went gold and platinum. Their popular songs include "Muskrat Love," "Love Will Keep Us Together," and "Do That To Me One More Time." If you love music, then you must be familiar with these songs, or at least one of them. The pair sold an estimated 23 million albums.

Although they didn't have any children, they were regarded as a perfect couple.

The divorce doesn't make any sense. But according to TMZ, it might have something to do with health insurance, although that has not been confirmed. We do know however that Daryl  is suffering from Parkinson's. His insurance coverage might be better if they were divorced, TMZ pointed out.
