Will Smith Breaks Marriage Down For The Ladies: “All Men Need A Little Space… Remind Him What He Has”

Will Smith Jada Pinkett Smith making marriage work

Will Smith recently chopped it up with the good folks at Essence Magazine to talk about love and marriage from a man’s perspective.

And being that he and Jada are fourteen years in with no sign of letting go of their matrimony-dom, we’re willing to listen. Especially since what he had to offer sounded way better than some of the other bulls**t some of these other celebrity “husbands” have suggested to women in the past.

If You Marry Your Best Friend, You’re Good
Every man wants to marry his homie, Will explained. A lot of women will impress them, but it’s the one they can always laugh with and be themselves with that will ultimately impress them the most. If you can be yourselves around each other, 100 percent of the time, and they can make you life like no one else can, you’ll never have a dull moment together.

Remind Him of What He Has
When you start to feel that you’re nagging your husband to the point of no return and nothing you’re saying is getting through, Will suggests you try a new approach. Hold him close, look him right in the eyes, and tell him that you love him, you’re right there, and you always will be, BUT you need him to pick his socks up – right now. As Will puts it, it’s important to remind him that your request is coming from a good place, and what you want is a small thing in the grand scheme of things. Um, genius!

    Beautiful article! Finally a positive outlook on marriage from a BLACK MAN about his BLACK wife.

    By the way, where is GM and the rest of the self loathing crew at? You know the trolls who claim that marriage is unnatural and that women get married just to use men for financial gain.
