Jada Pinkett Smith: Divorce From Will Smith Unlikely, Gives Facebook Marriage Advice
For Jada Pinkett Smith, divorcing Will Smith is not an optio,n and she’s even been giving advice on Facebook about marital issues.
As previously reported by The Inquisitr, Jada Pinkett Smith’s drug addictions revelations shocked many, with the star saying she’d suffered from multiple past addictions.
Rumors of a Jada Pinkett Smith-Will Smith divorce have been flying around for a while. But, for Jada Pinkett Smith, divorce is only an option under one scenario:
“What is the thing that Will could do to make me not love [Will Smith]? That would make me abandon him? I can’t think of one. I’m sorry. Except if he did something bad to the kids — now we’ve got a problem.”
But now Jada Pinkett Smith’s marriage advice is being posted on Facebook. She says many couples “have stumbled upon inevitably difficult moments” which require a temporary break. Instead of rushing toward divorce, Jada Pinkett Smith recommends “giving your marriage some space and time before the drastic decision of divorce.” Married couples who have lasted over 25 years say they often “re-discover their desire to grow old together and to do what was necessary to continue to deepen their love for one another.”
Jada Pinkett Smith’s marriage advice also extends to abusive relationships. She asks, “Why do people stay with people who treat them bad?” Jada Pinkett Smith believes they “stay because they don’t believe they deserve to be treated better.” But at “the moment one truly believes they deserve better they do what it takes to change their circumstances.” If the abuse becomes “intolerable”, this might even mean leaving.
Still, Jada Pinkett Smith’s marriage advice can sometimes be misinterpreted. For example, the Jada Pinkett Smith open marriage controversy began when she responded to such rumors by saying, “I’ve always told Will, ‘You can do whatever you want as long as you can look at yourself in the mirror and be okay.'” Fortunately, Jada Pinkett Smith addressed the open marriage rumors with this clarification:
“Will and I both can do whatever we want, because we trust each other to do so. This does not mean we have an open relationship…this means we have a grown one.”
