it has turned into a "he says" and "she says" ordeal and apparently da captain is quite ill and so perhaps wifey doesn't want to have to care for him.
Maybe at their age they both need a good mental and physical once over.

I saw something about him having Parkinson's & this might just be a way for him to obtain better healthcare (single vs married situation).

In 2010, Tennille announced on her blog that Dragon had a neurological disorder similar to Parkinson's and was no longer able to play music as well as he had.
"[His condition] causes him to have tremors...pretty severe at times," she wrote. "Some days he does pretty well.... other days his playing is severely compromised

Man, that's too bad. So the "divorce" may actually be an act of love. Wow.
