Source - In a new cover story for GQ Magazine, Will Smith opened up about his nontraditional marriage to Jada Pinkett Smith.
Public attention on the couple and their relationship is nothing new, but the headlines reached new heights in July 2020 when Jada confirmed she had an "entanglement" with August Alsina. Both she and Will appeared on "Red Table Talk" at the time, addressing what went down with Alsina and coming clean about periods of non-monogamy in their marriage.
Not to kink shame- but I don't know if I could do it. I've been in relationships where the other guy wanted to open things up and all it did was make me jealous. Granted I don't have a lot of "options" when it comes to dating or "self respect" or "millions of dollars in the bank to attract a mate" but still, not for me. Then again, maybe I just haven't found the right person to partially commit to for the sake of optics on Instagram like so many of my gay brethren. Oh well.
Here's what Will had to say on the situation...
"Jada never believed in conventional marriage.… Jada had family members that had an unconventional relationship," Smith shared about his wife. "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."
I guess when you grow up in a household where the adults are sleeping around more than Marvin Sease you assume that's normal. And maybe it is. What do I know I'm just a blogger? The point I'm trying to make is I'm happy for Will and Jada. They've found a solution that works for them and that's more than 90% of couples can say. My only gripe is that Jada was clearly the one who wanted to open things up more than Will, which is tough if you're a one-woman-man. It also makes it seem like she has all the power. Regardless, if you're in a relationship and you want to fuck other people you should be open about it. It's going to come to light eventually. Then again, that's easier said that done. Will and Jada's full interview will air November 9th.
