Jada Pinkett Smith Shares These Thoughts On Marriage And It Is Absolutely Downright

Hollywood celebrity couple, Will and Jada Smith have been in the institution of marriage long enough to know how it works; they have been married for 20+ years.

46-year-old Jada Koren Pinkett Smith– American actress, dancer, singer-songwriter, and businesswoman recently took to Instagram to share her thoughts on troubled marriages and forgiveness, saying it’s ‘painful’ to see marriages ‘dissolve around’ her.

Sharing this adorable family photo of her family- showing her 25-year-old step-son, Trey, herself, her 17-year-old daughter, Willow, and her celeb husband, 49-year-old Willard Carroll “Will” Smith Jr.

Jada wrote:

“I’ve been watching a lot marriages dissolve around me,” the Girls Trip star wrote in the caption, which Will also shared. “It’s been really painful. Marriages change. Sometimes they need to be reimagined and transformed. Sometimes they are simply over.”

The actress continued, stating that she hopes others can “find the patience and love” to consider their children during the troublesome time.

“But either way, I pray that folks going through this painful transition find the patience and the love within to not throw the ‘babies’ out with the bath water,” she said, emphasizing the hashtag “#family.”

The beautiful mom-of-2 also gave her perspective on forgiveness in an early-morning video posted on Sunday, stressing that it all starts with giving oneself grace.

“I’ve been sitting here just thinking about forgiveness, and it’s been a deep journey for me because I’ve had to look into the shadows of my own heart and understand how I’ve hurt other people and forgive myself for any wrong acts that I might have committed or any pain I might have caused other people,” she said while lying in bed.

The star added that we’re all “in this together learning how to love.”

“I had to clear myself of my own shame, my own guilt and have compassion and forgiveness for myself,” she noted.

“And that actually gave me the power to forgive other people. It came through me releasing myself. None of us are perfect. Forgiveness is not really about the other person, it’s really about us.”

In the video’s caption, Jada said it’s crucial to “find the ‘God Love’ within that gives us the ‘Self Love’ we need to forgive.”

“Forgiveness … My power to forgive others came from forgiving myself by looking into the shadows of my own heart. But… there are acts committed against us that are so horrific our only choice is to give it to the Mother/Father to fill us with a healing needed to find the “God Love” within that gives us the “Self Love” we need… to forgive.

It’s all a delicate process where I also had to realize that just because my heart may embrace and forgive… doesn’t mean that person should be standing beside me. Forgiveness… loving myself enough to let go???? #pillowtalk,” she wrote.

Last month, Will had revealed that the 2 of them don’t even say they’re married anymore but rather prefer the term “life partners.”

“We refer to ourselves as life partners, where you get into that space where you realize you are literally with somebody for the rest of your life,” Will shared on TIDAL’s Rap Radar podcast.

”There’s no deal breakers. There’s nothing she could do — ever. Nothing that would break our relationship. She has my support till death and it feels so good to get to that space.”

Jada recently echoed that sentiment during the Sway in the Morning radio interview.

“Here’s the thing about Will and I — [we] are family. That is never going down. It’s just not. Ever,” she said, referencing divorce. “We are family. Take out all that whole marriage/relationship crap, at the end of the day, Will and I are family.

I am going to hold him down, doesn’t matter. At the end of the day, that is a man that can rely on me for the rest of his life, period.”

Their statements came after Will addressed divorce rumours last spring in his track, “To the Clique.”

“Stop the divorce rumors and mind your damn business,” he raps on the track, his first taste of new music.
