Speaking on Andy Cohen Live, Jon Bon Jovi stated: “I don’t know if age matters if you find the right partner and you grow together. That would be my advice: Growing together is wise. So, I think all my kids have found people that they think they can grow together with, and we like them all.”
He added, “Millie’s wonderful. Her whole family are great. Jake is very, very happy.”
In response to the engagement announcement, some critics took to social media to express their concerns about the couple’s age and the longevity of their relationship.
One Instagram user wrote: “Unpopular opinion but she’s way too young to be engaged. But age 19, you don’t even know who you are yet.”
However, it is clear that the couple is happy and confident in their plans and life goals.
Millie Bobby Brown revealed the news of her engagement on social media with the message: “I’ve loved you three summers now, honey, I want ’em all.”
While some may view their engagement as premature, Jon Bon Jovi’s words of advice are worth considering.
Age is just a number, and what matters most is finding the right partner with whom to grow and build a future together.
As long as Millie and Jake are happy and committed to each other, then their age should not be a barrier to their love.
It is important to remember that everyone’s journey in life is unique and that time is relative.
As Ariana Grande once commented on a 2018 post of Millie Bobby Brown kissing her former flame Jacob Sartorius atop a lifeguard watchtower on the beach, “I wasn’t even allowed to leave my house until I was 20.”
Everyone’s upbringing and experiences are different, and we should not judge others based on our own expectations or assumptions.
