Today brought us the devastating news that after 39 years of marriage, Captain & Tennille are divorcing. I once read that Michael Jackson spent his entire post-Thriller life trying to achieve that same level of success with subsequent albums. Were Captain & Tennille similarly plagued by a quest to outdo “Muskrat Love,” finally giving up on each other, as well? I don’t know the answer to that. Quite honestly, I didn’t know they were actually married- for some reason I thought they were like the Eurythmics- rather vague in their relationship status (after all, their fame predated Facebook, so how would we know?).
My sister smartly proposed that I examine other married music duos. Is recording, touring, promoting together non-stop good or bad for a relationship? Let’s take a look.
