Am I the only one who wishes they could’ve been a fly on the wall during one of Will and Jada Pinkett-Smith’s marriage counseling sessions? They are one of Hollywood’s top power couples and each has dominated the entertainment industry throughout their respective careers. Jada has this earthy and chill persona while Will has always been known for his smooth and comedic take on life so I think it would be pretty interesting to sit in on one of their sessions.
In a new interview with The Sun, Will admits the couple underwent counseling to save their 19-year marriage.

Will Smith revealed: “I’ve done a lot of marriage counseling. What happens in a marriage once you do counseling, the truth comes out. 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.”
Both Will and Jada have acknowledged marriage problems in the past but neither have ever admitted going to counseling together. Rumors have circulated for years that the pair have an open marriage.
Jada appeared to address the claims last year when she said: “At the end of the day, I’m not here to be anybody’s watcher. I’m not his watcher. He’s a grown man.
“I trust that the man that Will is is a man of integrity. So, he’s got all the freedom in the world, and as long as Will can look himself in the mirror and be OK, I’m good.”
Honesty is a major factor when it comes to relationships. I think when people who have problems within their marriage that they let go unresolved ultimately leads to divorce. I’m glad to hear that Will and Jada have both been proactive with saving their union.
