In a recent interview with Fox News Digital, promoting the forthcoming documentary “Thank You, Goodnight: The Bon Jovi Story,” the lead singer of the band shared insights into his marriage, emphasizing the absence of strict rules within their relationship.

“I don’t believe we require rules. It’s more like a mutual admiration society,” he elaborated. “It’s that straightforward. Each morning, we wake up eager to spend time together, filled with admiration and respect. It’s a joy to be together, simply put.”

Jon Bon Jovi, aged 62, and Dorothea, aged 61, were sweethearts during their high school years. According to a 2016 report by People, the couple initially crossed paths at Sayreville War Memorial High School in their hometown of New Jersey.

In 1989, amidst the peak of Bon Jovi’s fame, the couple decided to elope to Las Vegas.

Reflecting on their marriage at the time, Bon Jovi acknowledged that he’s not without fault and admitted that, like any relationship, theirs has encountered challenges. Nonetheless, he emphasized their commitment to making it work.

“She’s the glue,” Jon Bon Jovi expressed. “I’m the crazy visionary with all kinds of things flying, and the seams are all splitting. She’s the one following me with the glue and the thread and needle, keeping it all together.”

“Somehow, I became the poster boy for a long-married rock star. But I’ll accept the mantle because I’m so happy,” he added.

In an interview with The Independent ahead of their 35th wedding anniversary, Jon reiterated that he’s never claimed to be “a saint” during their marriage.

“These are all the wonderful clichés of rock stardom,” he explained. “It’s about never lying about having been a saint, but not being a fool enough to [mess] up the home life, either.”

Jon and Dorothea will celebrate their wedding anniversary on April 29th. They have four children together: Stephanie, 30, Jesse, 29, Jake, 21, and Romeo, 20.

During an interview with Fox News Digital, Jon discussed Jake’s burgeoning acting career. Jake recently starred in his first film, “Rockbottom,” which premiered on Amazon Prime in March.

“Well, he’s certainly my son, isn’t he? You know that DNA is strong,” Jon commented on Jake’s acting debut. “I saw the film. I think it’s a wonderful first film. He had shot it two years ago. So, he’s already moved on from it emotionally.

“But I was very proud of him for achieving a role in his first movie. He’s an aspiring actor, and like all young aspiring actors, they have to start somewhere. And he’s going to build upon that, but he’s going to do great.”

Jake, 21, made headlines when he and “Stranger Things” actress Millie Bobbie Brown, 20, announced their engagement on Instagram in April 2023.

At the time, Jon shared his thoughts on his son’s engagement, expressing that he didn’t believe their age should deter them from saying “I do.” “I don’t know if age matters,” Jon told Andy Cohen on SiriusXM’s “Radio Andy” in May. “If you find the right partner, and you grow together, I think that would be my advice, really because growing together is wise.”

The “Bed of Roses” singer added that he believes “all of my kids have found the people they think they can grow together with, and we like them all.”

In Jon’s professional life, he and his bandmates star in the upcoming Hulu docuseries, “Thank You, Goodnight: The Bon Jovi Story,” which premieres on April 26. Additionally, Bon Jovi’s 16th studio album, “Forever,” is set to be released on June 7.
