Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne, Jada and Will Smith, and Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik have three very diverse relationships. They are in three very different stages of their lives. Ozzy and Sharon, Jada and Will, and Gigi and Zayn each have something unique to offer in relationship advice.
Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik are perfect examples of young love. Malik, formerly of One Direction, and Miss Hadid, the supermodel, face life together with the same joy and bliss of any idealistic young couple. More than that, though, Gigi and Zayn show every indication of a young couple building a relationship on a strong foundation. Malik and Hadid have put a lot of thought into their rapidly blossoming relationship.
Jada and Will Smith, have been married for 19 years. The Smith family also includes teenaged children. The Smiths have come through it all looking like the perfect couple. Even so, Will Smith acknowledges the Smith marriage isn’t as easy as it looks from the outside.
Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne have certainly had some hard knocks as a couple. Ozzy and Sharon have been married for 34 years and every day, new challenges still present themselves, making Ozzy and Sharon’s relationship complex, but amazing. The Osbourn family love is as complex, creative, and sometimes messy, as all the highly creative and unique individuals involved.
The Osbourne children are grown, but the Osbourne family is still very close knit. The Osbournes aren’t perfect, but they are a perfectly loved and perfectly loving family.
Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik have a relationship based on respect, support, and understanding of what someone else is going through. Lending confidence has been Gigi’s strong suit these last few months, as Zayn struggles with his stress and a lack of confidence. Zayn was quoted un Daily Mail, explaining his problems.
“I just don’t have it in me to feel fully secure in anything I do. I always strive towards something better. It’s why I think sometimes I come across the wrong way, a bit distant. I’m just stressed out trying to control how I’m perceived. I think about things a lot.”
Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik are facing Zayn’s problems together. Gigi helped him take on his fear of water by taking him canoeing, according to Inquisitr. Miss Hadid is working on the underlying problems behind Malik’s stage fright. Gigi has been Zayn’s strength and support through a major life crisis. Miss Hadid has also won Zayn’s respect for her intelligence and emotional depth, as revealed in Daily Mail.
“She’s super intelligent. I think that’s why it works so well. And we do the same type of job so we get that with each other. I enjoy an intellectual conversation as well, where someone can construct a sentence beyond what hair and makeup they’re wearing, and talk about something political or about the world. I like an opinion.”
Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne are a great couple, but many people look at their difficulties and wonder how they get through these situations. Sometimes people say Sharon should leave Ozzy, but real love doesn’t bail out when life gets tough.
Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne are not the only ones with problems. They are just in the public eye a lot. Many couples face the same kinds of situations. Sharon and Ozzy are just an example of how real love can find a way to make it work, through the decades, even in the face of illness, accidents, affairs, and the host of problems great and small that confront all people from time to time.
Jada and Will Smith have the perfect marriage, or at least it certainly looks that way, but Will says it’s really very challenging. He told Entertainment Tonight their secret to success is simply not being quitters.
“At the end of the day, it’s just not quitting. You can’t expect it to be easy. Our marriage was the most difficult grueling excruciating thing we have ever taken on in our lives and you know we are just not quitters.”
Will Smith explains another secret is working on himself, while Jada works on her own character building, rather than working on the relationship. It’s about always presenting a better self to their spouse.
“If there is a secret I would say is that we never went into working in our relationship. We only ever worked on ourselves individually, and then presented ourselves to one another better than we were previously.”
Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne are probably the most compelling example of unconditional love and acceptance ever. Ozzy Osbourne and his wife Sharon are authentic, powerful emotionally, highly creative, and amazingly diverse in many ways, yet somehow it works. They aren’t afraid to make mistakes, and their love outweighs those mistakes every time, as Ozzy said in a recent quote in Daily Mail.
“You just, you make mistakes, and you learn by your mistakes.”
Ozzy Osbourne echoes Will Smith’s comments in his own way to Entertainment Tonight. Ozzy says there is no such thing as some effortless happily ever after.
“And we both lived happily ever after. I’d like to find the person who wrote that and poke him in the eye with a burnt stick. Some days it’s good, some days it’s terrible, some days you just drift apart for a while. But you get back on the horse, you know.”
Sharon Osbourne uses the word “forgive,” when she speaks of her reaction to Ozzy’s affair, but it looks like what Sharon is really indicating is unconditional love.
“I can’t speak for him, but for me, yes, I forgive. It’s gonna take a long time to trust, but we’ve been together 36 years, 34 of marriage… I just can’t think of my life without him. Even though he’s a dirty dog. He’s gonna pay big.”
While Sharon Osbourne seems to be joking about Ozzy Osbourne having to pay, he really does, but Ozzy won’t have to pay by losing Sharon’s love or their marriage. Ozzy does have to admit fault, he has to apologize, and he has to improve his behavior. Mr. Osbourne may have temporarily lost some credibility, but he hasn’t lost Sharon’s love because that kind of love endures all. Still, Ozzy definitely feels bad about what he did, and the Prince of Darkness has to live down his behavior yet again, just as he did at the Alamo.
That doesn’t mean Ozzy Osbourne always gets fast forgiveness, it doesn’t mean Sharon has an immediate return to trust, and it certainly doesn’t always mean Sharon Osbourne is forgetting. It simply means that when a love is big enough it simply outweighs everything else on the balance scales. It often means putting love before all else and a focusing on family and what really matters.
Who gives up someone like Ozzy Osbourne for any reason? Certainly not Sharon. After 34 years, she is still powerfully in love with this legendary rocker.
Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne and Will and Jada Smith are married couples with years of experience in marriage, while Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik aren’t even married yet. Together these couples represent the stages of a strong relationship.
Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik are building a relationship on the foundation of support, strength, honesty, and respect. As Gigi has acknowledged, sometimes the greatest strength comes in the form of admitting one’s weaknesses and working on them. Gigi was very supportive of Zayn admitting his problems with stress, publicly. Zayn is tackling his fears, and admitting his struggles with Gigi at his side.

Will Smith and his wife, Jada Pinkett Smith, are also working on themselves, tackling their own problems and insecurities, both separately and together. Overwhelming love, though, love that outweighs all else, is as obvious in the Smith relationship as in Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne’s marriage. The tests the Smiths go through may be different, but the power to push through those trials obviously comes from love, along with a lot of determination and commitment.
These Hollywood couples are about holding on to something that matters more than all else: love. It isn’t always fun it isn’t always easy, because though people come in all types, the one type that isn’t out there are perfect people. There is no such thing, and so relationships including imperfect people, can’t be perfect. It makes no sense to get mad at people for being themselves, and thus being imperfect. It transcends forgiveness and even acceptance. It is love, and without that, the world would be a lonely place.
Jada and Will Smith, Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne, and Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik are great examples of what it takes to build a great and lasting love.
