Will Smith Credits Counseling For Saving His Marriage to Wife Jada Pinkett Smith
Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith are on most people’s list of #relationshipgoals, but what many don’t see is the work it takes to maintain a successful marriage, especially while being Hollywood stars.
Rumors have swirled around the Hollywood couple’s marriage for years to the point whenever it’s a slow news day, media outlets report stories saying the couple is splitting.
For the first time, Will, who is currently starring in the film, Suicide Squad, spoke about the joint counseling which he credits for saving his marriage.
“I’ve done a lot of marriage counseling. What happens in a marriage once you do counseling, the truth comes out.”
He continued saying, “And you sit across from your wife and you’ve said all of your truth and she has said all of her truth. You look at each other and you can’t imagine you could ever possibly love each other again now the truth is out. It creates a dark moment. But for me it’s the dark before the dawn. When the truth comes out and people have to say who they are and what they think, you get to know who they are. I think that’s the cleansing before you get to the other side that is understanding and moving forward in our relationship.”
It’s good for people to know there’s no such thing as a perfect relationship and it takes consistent work to maintain a marriage.
More couples should follow suit before throwing in the towel.
