Why Will and Jada Smith chose an open marriage?
Acting couple Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith have always intrigued the public with their specific relationship and open marriage.
The marriage of Will Smith and Jada Pinkett has always attracted attention, and after the scandal at the Oscars, their controversial relationship has again come to the public spotlight. Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith have always intrigued the public with their specific relationship and open marriage.
The actor once publicly admitted that he always dreamed of having many women at the same time. “I don't know where I saw it, but as a teenager, it seemed like a great idea to have 20 women I would love to travel with and take care of” - he said and revealed that he had long wanted actress Halle Berry to be part of his harem.
Moreover, he admits that he wanted to ask them if they were interested in it. As he explained, working on himself, he came to the conclusion that there is nothing wrong with being married and thinking that Halle Berry looks good.
What attracts the most attention these days is the episode of the Jada Pinkett podcast from 2020, in which Will Smith is also a guest, and she openly talks about her relationship with the rapper who was a friend of their son. “I wanted to feel good. I haven't felt so good in too long. I wanted to help him, and so did I help myself” - Jada told her husband, and his expression was not particularly happy.
The couple revealed that they were separated at the time of that relationship, and at the end of the conversation they even concluded that they were in a toxic relationship. The period of cheating was when it was suspected that Smith was cheating on Jada with his colleague Margot Robbie, although this story was denied.
“There is a constant debate about what a perfect relationship is. For most of our relationship, what we chose was monogamy, but we did not think of monogamy as a perfect relationship” - he said, adding that he did not recommend the path chosen by Jada and him to anyone, and that marriage should not be a prison.
Smith often pointed out that Jada herself did not believe in conventional marriage because she grew up in such a family where some members were in unconventional relationships.
Psychologists have also begun to analyze the relationship of this controversial couple, claiming that the two of them are in a dysfunctional marriage, and some even have a theory that Jada is a narcissist and a manipulator. Will and Jada are believed to have a fatalistic approach to marriage.
The couple has been married since 1997 and has a son, Jaden, and a daughter, Willow, and Will with Sheree Zampino also has a son, Trey.
