They've been together for 18 years, and rocker Jon Bon Jovi insists that he would never 'trade' his wife Dorothea Hurley in for another woman.
Jovi, who has seen the collapse of the marriages of his band mates - David Bryan, and Richie Sambora, insists that his wife is really something special to him, even while admitting that he hasn't been a 'saint', and that he's 'had his lapses'.
Advertisement"I wouldn't trade her in for anything," the Daily Mail quoted him, as saying.
"The fact that she's independent and isn't needy or possessive helps and she is just a very strong woman (being a karate instructor can't harm).
"I've been cognisant of the fact that relationships have been breaking up around us, but it hasn't made me cling to her or the other way round," he said.
And, Dorothea certainly doesn't have to worry about her hubby falling for a younger girl with fake assets, for he prefers women who grow old gracefully.
"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," he says.
"You see women with it everywhere in Hollywood and, urgh..." he added.
The rocker also insists that though no one expects a marriage to last in the rock business, there are those that have kicked the norm.
"And although everyone says we're about the only couple still together in the rock business, it's not really true. There's Bono and his wife Ali and Bruce (Springsteen) and Patti. We're not the only ones," he said.
Jovi and his wife have been married for some 18 years, and have four children - Stephanie Rose, 14, Jesse James, 12, Jacob, 5, and Romeo, 3.
