Behind every successful man, there is his woman.

The rock singer and karate instructor have made their marriage work throughout 30 years despite all the obstacles and challenges on their way. Speaking with TODAY, Jon Bon Jovi said:

She’s the glue. I’m the crazy visionary with all kinds of things flying, and the seams are all splitting. She’s the one following me with the glue and the thread and needle, keeping it all together.

The It's My Life hitmaker said that his admirers painfully accepted his marriage. In the beginning, their joint journey was met by hatred and jealousy as many young girls' hearts were broken into tiny pieces.

America wasn’t happy on that Monday when they found out about the wedding and a lot of people tried to ruin a beautiful thing. They tried to cheat us out of that moment.

However, the two has been married for decades and Jon's love for his wife only grows every year. The rock leader added that Dorothea is "the rock of my family, my career, my being."

I am grateful for someone in my life like that who I can love and trust.
