Jada Pinkett Smith reveals she cried on her and Will Smith's wedding day because she 'never wanted to be married'
Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith really are the definition of couple goals. The two of them have been happily married for a fair few years, but even after all that time the happy couple seem to be just as in love as they were when they first met, and Will's current marriage has now totally overshadowed his first to Sheree Zampino.
However, under the surface, things haven't always been rosy, and the Smiths have been clear that their marriage has gone through some rough patches in the past. In fact, on a recent episode of Pinkett Smith's Facebook Watch series, Red Table Talk, Jada revealed that she was actually in floods of tears on her own wedding day.
Pinkett Smith added that she realized her life was "never going to be the same" and she "was under so much pressure being a young actress — being young, pregnant, I was just like, I didn't know what to do. But I knew I never wanted to be married." She added that she was "so upset that I had to have a wedding" and "cried the whole way down the aisle."
However, apparently Will knew that he and Jada were always meant to be together, and he opened up about the moment where he realised he had to break up with Zampino to pursue her. It was a time when Will himself was so conflicted about his love life that he too was reduced to tears. He stated: "Me and Sheree went to dinner, and I sat down with Sheree, and it was one of the most bizarre emotions I ever had. We were at The Palm and I remember I had to get up from dinner when I had a realisation that I wasn’t with the person I was supposed to be with."
He added: "But you would have stayed with her forever. I would have never got a divorce. I went into the bathroom in The Palm, and I broke down in tears. I was sitting in a stall in the restaurant and I was crying uncontrollably and then laughing like, 'what the heck is wrong with me?' And I knew, that was the woman I was supposed to be with."
However, the good news is that the celebrity couple managed to work through their issues and are all the stronger for it, and now refer to each other as "life partners" rather than husband and wife. I guess it just goes to show that, as long as the two of you communicate properly, and work on your marriage equally. There's no problem that can't be overcome through the power of love. I think that Will and Jada should be commended for being so open about their struggles, doubts and fears and sharing them with the public. We could all take a bit of inspiration from their relationship!
