Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith's marriage has been criticized by the media for years now. Rumors fly around about the duo all the damn time. One second, Will Smith is actually gay. The next? The couple has split. Jada recently opened up to Redbook about the gossip. Jada thinks negative rumors ruin relationships and confessed to the mag how she handles all the pressure.
"I have been affected by gossip and I know people who have been too," said Smith. "I've seen marriages destroyed by gossip. It is cruel. At the end of the day, all that matters is: Do you love what you see when you look in the mirror? That is it, baby."
That's a crazy outlook to have, and a brave one considering she and her husband are in an open relationship. I can't help but wonder, though, is this just a front? Is Jada talking about how "great" her marriage is right now because SO many people are hating on it?
Personally, I think so.
I think when you hear negative things all the time, you want an opportunity to speak out and give your side of the story. Is gossip ruining her marriage? Not necessarily. But I guess that depends on whether a ruined marriage is simply defined by "staying together." We already know that "divorce isn't an option." Man, my curiosity about what things are like in that home is killer.
Whether or not Will and Jada are in a happy marriage that's legitimate or not, the duo seems to have their ducks in a row. They have two incredibly talented and successful kids that are both thriving in their own careers. Despite what may be going on with the two parents, Jada and Will are providing them with a great upbringing and support system.
So I'll say this: It seems like their marriage is good for their image, their careers. It seems like everything is going just fine and that she's happy. I just can't help but wonder if one day, this is all gonna blow up.
Do you think Will and Jada are truly happy in their marriage?
