Jada Pinkett Smith Denies Open Marriage
Her relationship with husband Will Smith has been under constant scrutiny for what seems like forever, and Jada Pinkett Smith has clarified her previous statement that “he is his own man, and can do whatever” he wants.
The “Collateral” chick signed on to her Facebook page to lend some insight into what she meant, and the state of her marriage.
"Let me first say this, there are far more important things to talk about in regards to what is happening in the world than whether I have an open marriage or not,” she began.
"I am addressing this issue because a very important subject has been born from discussions about my statement that may be worthy of addressing."
Jada added, "Do we believe loving someone means owning them? Do we believe that ownership is the reason someone should 'behave?’ Do we believe that all the expectations, conditions, and underlying threats of 'you better act right or else' keep one honest and true? Do we believe that we can have meaningful relationships with people who have not defined nor live by the integrity of his or her higher self? What of unconditional love? Or does love look like, feel like, and operate as enslavement? Do we believe that the more control we put on someone the safer we are? What of TRUST and LOVE?"
"Should we be married to individuals who cannot be responsible for themselves and their families within their freedom? Should we be in relationships with individuals who we cannot entrust to their own values, integrity, and LOVE...for us???"
"Here is how I will change my statement...Will and I BOTH can do WHATEVER we want, because we TRUST each other to do so. This does NOT mean we have an open relationship...this means we have a GROWN one."
