April 29, 1989: Jon Bon Jovi married his childhood sweetheart, Dorothea Hurley, on the steps of the Graceland Chapel, Las Vegas. Bon Jovi, age 27 at the time, had one day off during the New Jersey tour and the two decided to sneak off for a private ceremony not telling his tour manager, band mates, or security.  The two didn't even have wedding rings for the occasion.  Many in the organization questioned his decision at the time and feared it would hurt the popularity of the band. However, Bon Jovi continued to put out hits and sell out shows. Jon and Dorothea have four children and remain together to this day.
