Goffin married Carole King in August 1959 (he was 20; she was 17), and the husband-wife team pursued a successful songwriting career, notably as part of the famous Brill Building songwriting team. Their breakthrough hit was 1961's "Will You Love Me Tomorrow", which was recorded by The Shirelles and later, Dusty Springfield. Although they divorced in 1968, the two continued to work together for some years afterward. They are the parents of singer-songwriter Louise Goffin and Sherry Goffin Kondor.
