When it comes to Rock & Roll and marriage, well longevity is not always achieved. Jon Bon Jovi and his wife Dorothea are certainly an exception to the rule.

Tuesday marked the 25th wedding anniversary of Jon and his wife, Dorothea Hurley, his high-school sweetheart.  The two tied the knot on April 29, 1989, in Las Vegas.  The couple have four children: daughter Stephanie, and sons Jesse, Jacob and Romeo.

In 2007, Jon told a British paper that he wouldn't "trade [Dorothea] in for anything," adding, "The fact that she's independent and isn't needy or possessive helps and she is just a very strong woman."

Noting that he had no interest in swapping his wife for a younger model, as often happens, Jon said, "No. I find that women are much sexier when they age gracefully. I want to see them in cowboy boots and blue jeans and not with so much liposuction that they can't even close their eyes."
