Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith are getting a divorce and have decided to make secret how they split their alleged $240 million worth of fortune. The custody of their two children will be kept in secret as their divorce paper, according to a very reliable source, only needs their signatures.
Come end of summer, the couple will finally make public how they are pulling off the plug on their 17-year marriage and how they have become tired of trying to project a “happy couple” image.
Of course, none of the above is true, and this is not the first time the lovely couple has been plagued with rumors that their marriage is on the rocks. But more important than the number of times they are struck with the same issue is how until now they remain strong and committed to each other.
Immediately after the alleged divorce story – that is so hackneyed the root source can be likened to the boy who cried wolf – circulated deep into social media networks and entertainment web sites, Will Smith himself posted his comment, quelling not just the issue; it actually gives an inkling on what makes the couple stronger throughout.
The sentence just before the hashtag tells a lot. It gives the idea on how Will and Jada treat each other as husband and wife and how they treat their marriage. They do not just see each other as partners in life like how almost every couple does. Will and Jada treat each other how they want to be treated and how they respect authority.
Of course, corroborating Will’s Facebook statement is Jada’s tweet, which although may only be a “simply-follow-suit,” it sums it up.
My king has spoken.

Will and Jada have high tolerance for their respective weaknesses and unlike most couples, they invest time knowing the root of their problems. They prefer to attack the issue together, seeing its end not as individuals, but as partners who vowed to see through each other’s lives until death.
In an earlier report, Will Smith admitted their marriage was not all heavenly. But they choose to stick to each other despite experiencing hell.
“Whatever you have is gonna die and you are gonna have to rebirth something new. You have to be willing to ride the waves,” he was quoted by The Sun.
“There’s gonna be some flat days and some stormy days, and that has to be OK,” he continued.
In a separate report, Jada disclosed there are no hard-and-fast rules in making their marriage work out. “Will, to me, encompasses everything. It’s almost as if calling him ‘my husband’ is too small of a word for what he means in my life—and especially how I feel we, as women, identify the idea of a husband,” said Jada Smith as quoted.
