With 20 years of marriage under his belt, Will and Jada Pinkett Smith have been serving up #RelationshipGoals in route to becoming one of Hollywood's biggest power couples.
During a brand new interview on TIDAL’s Rap Radar podcast, Will Smith shared something very interesting.
Let Will tell it, him and Jada have moved well past the labels and baggage associated with terms “husband and wife.” Instead they are focused on being each other’s true partners in life, with no deal breakers on the table for their arrangement. Will says they have even stopped using the word “married” when talking about their relationship status.
And no, that doesn’t mean they’re getting a divorce – it actually means the opposite.
The 49-year-old Will Smith shared: “We don’t even say we’re married anymore. We refer to ourselves as life partners, where you get into that space where you realize you are literally with somebody for the rest of your life. No deal breakers. There’s nothing she could do — ever — nothing that would break our relationship. She has my support till death and it feels so good to get to that space."
20 Years Ago Today we held hands and walked naively down that aisle. Here’s what I’ve learned since. . Love is Like Gardening... I have learned to focus on HELPING you to BLOSSOM into what YOU want to be (into what you were born to be)... Rather than Demanding that you become what my Fragile Ego needs you to be. . I’ve learned to take pleasure in Nourishing YOUR dreams... Rather than wrestling with you to Fulfill my Selfish Needs & Satiate My Insecurities. . I have learned that Love is Listening. Love is Giving. Love is Freedom. . Happy Anniversary, My Queen! I am forever Devoted to Nurturing your Deepest Truth.
Whatever they’re doing as a couple certainly seems to work for them!
Jada has long echoed her husband’s sentiments about their marriage, stating that they are “family” and that the word “marriage” doesn’t even begin to explain the strong bond that the two share, along with their children Jaden and Willow and Smith’s son Trey from a previous marriage.
Jada recently stated in an interview:
“Here’s the thing about Will and I — [we] are family. That is never going down. It’s just not. Ever. We’re family. Take out all of that whole marriage/relationship crap, at the end of the day, Will, and I are a family. I’m going to hold him down, does not matter. All that relationship and what people think of a husband, partner, man and all that, at the end of the day, that is a man that can rely on me for the rest of his life, period.”
Will Smith and Jada Pinkett met in 1990 when Will was starting his NBC sitcom, The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. They tied the knot on December 31, 1997 and Will & Jada have not managed to avoid cheating and divorce rumors but through it all – their strong bond and love stand.
Kudos to Will and Jada!
