Over the course of his 18-year marriage with Jada Pinkett Smith, the Hollywood A-lister has been subjected to several rumors regarding the couple’s standing with one another and if they indeed had an open relationship.
While talking with UK’s The Sun, Big Will spoke truth to those rumors, admitting that everything hasn’t always been red carpets and golden glamour along the way.
“Whatever you have is gonna die and you are gonna have to rebirth something new,” he replied when asked about to give an overall synopsis on the marriage. “You have to be willing to ride the waves. There’s gonna be some flat days and some stormy days, and that has to be OK.”
Jada agreed and even revealed that with the wisdom they gained from being together from so long, they learned that they were able to do without conventional wisdom.
“We used to have all these rules, [but] as you go on in your relationship, you just get into a flow,” she explained.
“Will, to me, encompasses everything. It’s almost as if calling him ‘my husband’ is too small of a word for what he means in my life… I think I had a very stuck idea of what a husband looks like, what a wife should be. Once I broke all of that, a whole new world opened for me and man, oh, man, I got to see him in all his glory. And so that’s what it’s evolved into. And I’m just ecstatic about it.”
The couple has never been shy in opening up with the media and that goes double when discussing their famous children, Jaden and Willow.
