It is safe to say Will Smith Y Jada Pinkett-Smith They have had their fair share of ups and downs.
This week episode of the Red Talk Table, Will and Jada detail the real struggles they faced during the almost 21 years they have been married.
From the day they met on the set of Different world, Will said he "knew there was something in our energy that was magical." But fate had different plans for Will and Jada, as Smith revealed: "I went to Different world to meet Jada but he met Sheree
The[[Sheree Zampino]and I ended up marrying Sheree and having Trey with Sheree. "
The two would continue to see each other as friends over the years and, according to Will, "Every time we saw each other, it was always a beautiful energy."
Despite their connection, Jada and Will never sought a relationship until after their divorce, as he clarified when he looked at the camera and said clearly: "We did not have an affair while he was married.
However, Will said he realized he could not deny the feeling that "he was not with the person he should be with."
This epiphany led Smith to confusion, with one particular night coming to mind. "I was sitting in a position in the restaurant and crying uncontrollably and then I laughed:" What the hell are wrong with me? … I knew that was the woman. [Jada] I was supposed to be with him, but I would never divorce. I do not divorce, "he recalled.
And while "never" had started a divorce, Sheree did not feel the same. He laughed when he said, "Sheree filed for divorce on Valentine's Day, I was like," Ouch, "and I still said no." You can not divorce. "
Finally, after his divorce with Sheree was completed, Will picked up the phone and called Jada. "I said," Yes, Jada, what's up? "It's Will." She's like, "Hey! How are you?" I said: "Well, is not it?" Are you seeing someone? "She said:" Uhh no. "I said" Great, you're seeing me now. "

In response, Jada joked: "My foolish ass was like, 'Alright! & # 39;
At that time, he moved to Baltimore to live his dream of living on a farm, but instead returned to Los Angeles to be with Will. And while daughter Willow Smith she thinks it's a little sad that her mother has never achieved her goal, Jada does not regret it. "It's okay because I caught you! Everything happens for a reason," Jada said.
Then, after only two years of dating, Jada became pregnant. "The moment I knew the act I knew I was pregnant The moment I knew that night and he did not believe me, but I knew it," Jada revealed.
Ultimately, the two got married, although Jada said she "never wanted to get married". According to Will, "we only got married because Gammy was crying."

Then came the wedding day and the couple felt completely miserable. Jada said that she "cried all the way down the hall".
"I just never really agree with the construction, I never did, not yet," he explained. "Until death do us part, it's real for me, it's all rules because of this title" wife ".
And in one of his first real fights as a married couple, Will set the tone for how his fights would develop over the years, after Jada told Will to "Shut up."
He explained: "I grew up in a house where I saw my father hit my mother in the face and I will not create a house, a space, an interaction with a person where there is profanity and violence." If you talk to me like that, we can not be together. We're going to use no blasphemy in our actions, we're not going to raise our voice, we're not going to be violent, I can not do it, "she said," and she was like, "so wait, Would you break up with me for a few words? I was like, "Yes, I just did." His eyes swelled and he said, "Okay."
Therefore, for the next 20 or more years, they never spoke with profanity or anger. "Really, you're not communicating when you're talking to you in anger, what I realized is that you're hitting someone you say you love," Jada said.
Then came a point in their relationship when Will said, "There was a period when Mom woke up and cried 45 days in a row, I started keeping a diary."
He realized that "I was failing miserably, but on the outside I earned … I had the public perception that I wanted to project our relationship, the family, my wife, what the children are, what we are". in the world."
Then he began to feel that Jada was "sacrificing to fit my image." Even her children noticed, to the point that Willow, nine years old, told her: "Is not it sad? Dad has an image of a family in his mind and it's not us".
Jada said that it reached its boiling point when it turned 40 years old. "It was just as sick," he revealed.
Their conversation ends there, but the family continues their conversation about next week's episode.
