The rock star, Jon Bon Jovi, has recently spoken about his marriage, while revealing some details of her 34-year survival. 

The American singer has confessed to The Independent that he crossed the lines several times during his married life with his high school sweetheart, Dorothea Hurley.

"These are all wonderful rock star clichés," he said in an interview with the British newspaper.  

"It's about never lying about being a saint, but not being stupid enough to ruin your home life as well," he added.

The 62-year-old artist admitted that their marriage has lasted so long because of his wife's patience and tolerance of his infidelity over the years.

He also explained that they have "a mutual admiration society and are lucky to have grown up together."

Bon Jovi expressed his deep regret for his multiple affairs, which he described in his 1993 hit song, "Bed of Roses."

The "Livin' on a Prayer" singer married Hurley, 61, in Las Vegas in 1989.
They have four children together: sons Jesse, 29, Jake, 21, and Romeo, 20, and daughter Stephanie, 30.

Like his father, son Jake Bongiovi also found love at a young age with Millie Bobby Brown.

He and the Stranger Things actress, 20, got engaged in April 2023 and are busy planning their wedding. 

Bon Jovi responded to concerns that his son proposed at such a young age last May, telling SiriusXM's "Andy Cohen Live" that age is just a number.
