Jada Pinkett Smith Explains Why Divorcing Will Smith Is ‘Never An Option’
Don’t even go there — cause it ain’t an option!
Jada Pinkett Smith is getting real about her marriage, and the fact that divorcing Will Smith just won’t happen, no matter what, according to her recent comments on family life and love!
The 47-year-old actress first opened up about the fact that divorce isn’t happening after revealing on her Facebook show Red Table Talk that her mom, Adrienne Banfield-Jones, once questioned her marriage to the Men in Black actor.
Speaking about the interaction, Pinkett Smith recalled:
“She was like, ‘Well, why don’t you guys just divorce?’ One of the ideas for me is that we’ve built such a beautiful community, we’ve built such a beautiful family… we do well together. Breaking that group and community up for me? It’s just never an option. I’m just like ‘No subtraction. If you need to add, go ahead. But I don’t see the necessity of subtraction.'”
Jada later continued:
“For me, personally, I’m not mature enough to have a divorce. I’m just not. I don’t think I would ever be mature enough. When you have to start going in, breaking up assets… that’s when the red table turns upside down, and it won’t be red no more! I actually have more maturity to figure it out within, and work with what I got. I’ve seen people try to have the most friendly divorces and at some point, it’s still painful.”
And while marriage isn’t easy for anybody, Jada revealed more about how her and Will have been able to ride out the waves and work together on what makes them so successful as a couple.
“I won’t say that it’s easy, but one of the things that Will and I take a lot of pride in is being able to balance it by really understanding our family and one another as artists. So many of us are doing so many things. Willow [Smith]‘s over here doing that. Trey [Smith], Jaden [Smith], Will [are off doing other things.] Sometimes we’re in all different parts of the world. But we love doing what we love to do and we flow so much light and power to one another to do it. That’s the thing that keeps us connected. Partnering is a lot more than romance. It has a lot to do with survival, resources and just having somebody or somebodies by you that can help you figure it out.”
Red Table Talk has covered quite a bit of ground in Jada’s life — love, marriage, social issues… what do you think about all of it, Perezcious readers?!
