Jon Bon Jovi on marriage: ‘Every day is a challenge’

Is Jon Bon Jovi giving love a bad name?

The rocker gave insight into his and wife Dorothea Hurley’s marriage while sharing advice for son Jake Bongiovi and future daughter-in-law Millie Bobby Brown on “Good Morning America” Thursday.

“The magic for me has just been growing together with Dorothea,” the Grammy winner, 62, said — but admitted that “every day is a challenge and a change.”

He added, “But if you’re growing together, hopefully things will work out.”

The singer went on to joke that his 21-year-old son and the “Stranger Things” actress, 20, aren’t “going to listen” to his words of wisdom before tying the knot.

The couple started dating in 2021 and got engaged two years later.

As for Bon Jovi’s own marriage, the songwriter met and fell in love with Hurley, 61, in high school and got married in a Las Vegas elopement.

Since the pair tied the knot in 1989, the musician has not been a “saint” amid “the wonderful cliches of rock stardom” without “being a fool enough to f**k up the home life.”

He confessed as much during an interview with The Independent published Sunday, praising his partner’s “tolerance.”

“[We are] a mutual admiration society and [are] lucky enough to have grown up together,” Bon Jovi said over the weekend.

Notably, he alluded to previous affairs in “Bed of Roses” in 1993.

In addition to Jake, the longtime couple are also the parents of daughter Stephanie, 30, Jesse, 29, and Romeo, 20.
