Both ABBA couples got a divorce and it was no longer any fun being in a band together.
After a very successful 10 year career, ABBA separated in December of 1982. Actually, the band claims they never officially broke up, just took a break.
Ulvaeus and Andersson continued writing music for other musicals and movies while Fältskog and Lyngstad pursued solo careers. After a 40 year break, ABBA announced they were reuniting and recording new songs, and just a couple months ago they released their 10th studio album Voyage.
Today, ABBA is considered one of the all-time classic pop acts and in 2010 they were inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame. They have also won countless awards from Bravo Otto Awards, Carl-Alan Awards, and American Guild of Variety Artists Entertainer of The Year Awards. Currently, they are nominated for a Grammy for Record Of The Year for I Still Have Faith In You.
