Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith have been together for about 25 years now. Throughout their relationship, they have witnessed many setbacks but have still managed to keep their bond intact. Smith has publicly showcased his love for his wife as last year, he slapped Chris Rock, who was hosting the Oscars, for making a joke about his wife.
They two have been very candid about their s*x life. Will Smith once revealed that his wife doesn’t stop him from having affairs as long as he follows this one specific condition. It may sound odd, but this was quite normal for them.
Jada Pinkett Smith does not stop Will Smith from having an affair
“Part of the deal is that it can’t be women I know. It has to be women at a distance, so as soon as I get to know them, I have to give them up.”
So the actor was allowed to have s*xual thoughts about anymore as long he doesn’t know them.
The couple said that “marriage is not a prison for them“
In 2021, Smith appeared for an interview with GQ and revealed that he and his wife don’t see their marriage as a “prison.” He said,
“Jada never believed in conventional marriage. Jada had family members that had an unconventional relationship. So she grew up in a way that was very different than how I grew up. There were significant endless discussions about, what is relational perfection? What is the perfect way to interact as a couple? And for the large part of our relationship, monogamy was what we chose, not thinking of monogamy as the only relational perfection. We have given each other trust and freedom, with the belief that everybody has to find their own way. And marriage for us can’t be a prison.“
The two reportedly took this step because they were “both miserable and clearly something had to change.” He further explained that he doesn’t suggest this method to anyone else.
