Break-up Letters I Have Known

There are more actual photos of "Dear John" letters following a thousand or so words of wisdom.

The Captain and Tennille said it best… “Love will keep us together”. They publicly declared their love for each other to millions of people in the ’70s who voluntarily (or otherwise) listened to their song. Where are The Captain and Tennille now? Not together. I guess they fell out of love.
