“I knew there was something in our energy that would be magic,” He went on, “It was one of those things where everything went perfectly – not perfectly in the sense of smooth and lovely – but everything that went wrong went perfectly wrong,” 

The two were, however, unable to act on this attraction as Smith was still married to his then-wife, Sheree Zampino. The two ended up splitting in 1995, and two years after that, Smith and Pinkett Smith tied the knot. Smith explained that for the actress and him, things seemed to have been going wrong in the most perfect, wonderful ways possible Despite this, they did end up facing a number of other challenges in the initial stages of their relationship.

Nothing Was Going Right For Them

Will Smith then went on to write in his memoir, Will, that during the early stages of their relationship, a lot of things went very wrong, and this happened extremely quickly. He elaborated on this, stating that he and Jada Pinkett Smith decided what they wanted to do with their lives, personally and professionally, as well as what type of people they wanted to be, and made a plan together that would help them get there.

“In the beginning of our relationship everything that needed to go wrong went wrong very quickly. We learned early on who we were and who we wanted to be and decided on a path to get there. Normally at the beginning of relationship it’s all flowers and butterflies but we didn’t have that. I was coming out of a divorce and she was coming out of a bad relationship and there was just no time for bull***. It was just blatant, hard, cold honesty and that’s the basis of our relationship: harsh honesty.”

He added that, though most couples go through a honeymoon phase where everything is very smooth and calm for them, he and Pinkett Smith never had that. They, instead had messy separations and complicated past relationships, that weighed them down, forcing them to be blatantly honest with each other, rather than living in a false sense of comfort and companionship.
