Just in case the Amy Poehler/Will Arnett split hasn’t convinced you that love is dead, allow us to submit this: Danny DeVito, known for his iconic role in Taxi, movies and now It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia and Rhea Perlman, best known as the wise-ass barmaid on Cheers, are divorcing. They’ve been together for 42 years and married for 30. And now they’re divorcing, citing irreconcilable differences. To give you a bit of history, the funny pair met in 1970 when Perlman attended the Broadway show The Shrinking Bride, in which DeVito was featured. The couple have three grown kids: Lucy, 29 (pictured above with mom and dad); Grace, 27 and Daniel, 25.

DeVito, 67 and Perlman, 64, have appeared onscreen many times, but this moment below has to be one of the most classic. It comes from an episode of Taxi that originally aired on Nov. 19, 1980. In it, DeVito’s character (Louie DePalma) has a heartfelt (and hilarious) conversation with his girlfriend, played by Perlman.
