Neil Young and his wife Pegi are heading for divorce after thirty-six years of marriage.

Young filed the divorce papers in San Mateo, CA on July 29. The first hearing on the motion is set for December 12.

Young met Pegi when she was working as a waitress and the pair married in 1978. The couple have two children together, Amber and Ben, who suffers from cerebral palsy. In 1986, Pegi founded The Bridge School to provide a place of education for children with severe physical and speech impairments.

The couple have worked together many times over the years musically. Pegi has recorded three albums and has her own group, The Survivors, which includes Spooner Oldham, Rick Rosas, Kevin Holly and Phil Jones. She has regularly sung backup on Young's tours since the 90′s.

Both artists are on the bill for Farm Aid on September 13. There has been no word on whether the proceedings will change their plans.
