After splitting from Kate Gosselin seven years ago, Jon Gosselin's faith in marriage still isn't restored.

The father of eight is currently in a serious relationship, but tells ET's Jennifer Peros that he has no plans to remarry. "I don’t think there is a point in being married," Jon explains. "I mean, I might be spiritually, but there really isn’t a point. Our kids are grown now. I don’t know, I have mixed emotions about marriage. I do."

That being said, the former Jon and Kate Plus 8 star isn't opposed to other people taking those vows. "Anyone who does it when they’re young, god bless them," he continues. "I see bachelorette parties when I’m DJ’ing and I’ll say, 'Congratulations! It’s so wonderful. Let me play Bruno Mars for you.'"

While he won't be saying "I do" anytime soon, Jon does have a lot of love for his girlfriend. "She’s been so supportive of me. She basically straightened my life out and got me stable and focusing on work," the former reality star -- who has a DJ residency at the Building 24 night club in Wyomissing, Pennsylvania -- gushes. "The only thing I do now is DJ. I’m 39, I won't do that forever."

As for his ex, Kate, Jon admits that their relationship is still rocky. "Things are still sh*tty. Nothing new," he says. "I’ve almost been divorced as long as I was married. I’m not trying to stop the shows she’s doing now. Have I done anything to stop what she’s doing? No."

Jon has spoken to the press about how he feels about Kate and their divorce, and implies that this could be part of the reason things aren't yet amicable between them. "Maybe I should just keep my emotions out of the press, but it’s kinda hard not to when people are throwing you under a bus," he discloses. "Don’t take my dignity away, because you know nothing about it."

He told ET he left the restaurant after a photo was leaked of him working there, but is considering returning to the kitchen. "I only work there eight hours a week, because I like to do it," he shares. "Why can’t I work at a restaurant? I like to cook."

As for how he started working at the chain a month and a half ago, he reveals, "My buddy needed help, so I said OK, why not. I’ll saute!"
