Jada Pinkett Smith Talks Marriage Goals
Jada Pinkett Smith and her husband Will Smith have always had people buzzing about how sweet their marriage seems. The mother of two opened up on her latest episode of Red Table Talk to express her latest marriage goals.
Pinkett Smith shared the table with her 19 year old daughter, Willow Smith, and her mother, Adrienne Banfield Norris. She told them about her 23-year long marriage, and her hopes for a stronger friendship.
"The thing that Will and I are learning to do is be friends," Pinkett Smith said. "You get into all these ideas of what intimate relationships are supposed to look like, what marriages are supposed to be."
She continued saying, "Will and I are in the process of him taking the time to learn to love himself, me taking the time to learn to love myself and us building a friendship along the way."
She also continued on to talk about how easy it can be to become distant from your partner.
"Let me tell you, that’s been something to be married to somebody 20-some odd years and realize I don’t know you and you don't know me and also realizing there’s an aspect of yourself you don't know either," she said.
This isn't the first time Pinkett Smith opened up about her marriage. Back in October, she said that she felt the two have matured enough to a point in which she appreciates the relationship much more.
In the past, Pinkett Smith has also revealed how tired the couple were of being "perfect" in the public eye, hence why she maintains a level of openness with the public.
"We were kind of sick of living up to that," she said. "We were real sick of it. And then second of all, really having myself and Will come and talk about our relationship — sometimes you see just women do it alone or you just see a guy do it," she said.
