Any event or action has both the good and the bad sides to it. Jada Pinkett’s marriage to Will Smith might have injected a ray of positivity into her life.

The situation became so overwhelming for her that she even cried during her wedding.
Pinkett was absolutely upset with the wedding. She was only 25 when she married Will. However, things ultimately worked out well for her. She later admitted that she was “too damn young” at the time of her marriage. However, she also shared that Will Smith deserves the credit for making their marriage work for decades. Jada explained – “It [the marriage] did work out, but it worked out in a way that, thank God, I have a husband who is just a gangster. We have traveled. You’ve got to be strong. It takes work.”
Will Smith’s take on their relationship
Honesty is always seen as the best policy. Will Smith’s take on his long-lasting relationship with Jada Smith Pinket is largely dependent on this popular belief. He believed that their relationship has been able to survive the test of time as they were honest with each other. Thus according to Smith, this uncensored honesty has been the only reason behind their lasting relationship.
In an interview with Playboy, while speaking about his marriage with Jada Pinket, Will Smith admitted – “Jada and I have agreed on this basic concept: You don’t say anything that is not the truth, period. Nothing comes out of your mouth that is candy-coated or aimed to protect the other person.” Smith further added that he told Jada that they both should be absolutely truthful to each other. “If we both accept that, then we can accelerate our conversation and the movement of the relationship,” the famed actor added. He further admitted that Jada always followed this concept.
He even shared that he spoke to his wife in the same way as he did with his friends. Smith argued that one must accept him as he is. He explained that even when it comes to praising another woman, he does it in the same manner in front of his friends and also his wife.
What Smith and Pinkett ultimately realized
Will and Jada took a brief break from their relationship at one point in time. During this separation, as Smith admitted, they learned to ‘love in freedom.’ Speaking about their brief separation, Smith said on The Oprah Conversation that “it was a fantasy illusion” that they could make each other happy. He explained that both he and Jada ultimately concluded that it is not possible to make each other happy.
Therefore, they realized that they should focus on their individual happiness. This was the only way to maintain their marriage, and they did the same.
The relationship between Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith is the longest-lasting celebrity marriage in modern-day Hollywood. Jada felt she was too young to marry at the time of her marriage.
