Jon Bon Jovi Opens Up On His Long Marriage

Jon Bon Jovi Opens Up On His Long Marriage, As Jon Bon Jovi celebrates his 50th birthday on March 2, there’s also another milestone worth noting: He’s also one of the very few major rock stars to make it to the half-century mark while still on his first wife.

The namesake frontman of Bon Jovi has been married to his high school sweetheart, Dorothea, since they wed in a seemingly quickie ceremony at Las Vegas’ Graceland Wedding Chapel in 1989. Jon and Dorothea had been on and off as a couple for a decade prior to that. But, aside from a brief pre-marital dalliance with actress Diane Lane, the rocker hasn’t been publicly linked to any other sweeties besides his first crush.

Go ahead and say it, fans: He gives loveā€¦ a good name.

Neither member of the couple has gone to seed, that’s for sure. On holiday with their four kids at St. Bart’s over the Christmas holiday season, the pair were photographed together by paparazzi, with Bon Jovi’s washboard abs being complemented by what England’s Daily Mail described as “her trim beach body.” When the singer “wasn’t getting stuck into a spot of paddle boarding, he couldn’t keep his eyes off his gorgeous spouse.”

The band Bon Jovi is hardly a democracy. Jon is known to be the one who’s busy making all the crucial decisions and keeping track of business affairs while the other members are free to party or lounge through their off-time. And he reaps the rewards of that leadership, as Forbes reported last year that “Bon Jovi keeps the bulk of the [band's] earnings, whereas bands like U2 split proceeds evenly.”
