Will Smith gives rare insight into marriage with Jada Pinkett

In cover story for November issue of GQ, Will Smith opened up about his relationship with wife Jada Pinkett.

GQ's Wesley Lowery read out manuscript of the actor’s memoir, he wrote, "Our marriage wasn't working. We could no longer pretend. We were both miserable and clearly something had to change."

The 53-year-old shared, “Jada never believed in conventional marriage. Jada had family members that had an unconventional relationship. So she grew up in a way that was very different than how I grew up.”

He added, "There were significant endless discussions about, what is relational perfection? What is the perfect way to interact as a couple? And for the large part of our relationship, monogamy was what we chose, not thinking of monogamy as the only relational perfection."

He further added, "We have given each other trust and freedom, with the belief that everybody has to find their own way. And marriage for us can't be a prison. And I don't suggest our road for anybody.”

Smith concluded, “I don't suggest this road for anybody. But the experiences that the freedoms that we've given one another and the unconditional support, to me, is the highest definition of love."
