Jada Pinkett Smith Explains Why She and Will Went from "Being Married" to "Life Partners"
It has to do with seeing each other for who they are outside of their marriage.
Jada Pinkett Smith is explaining why she and husband Will Smith refer to themselves as "life partners" instead of being "married." (In July, Will made the surprising revelation during an appearance on TIDAL's Rap Radar podcast.)
"I needed a different form to dissolve all the expectations that I had of a marriage," Jada tells PEOPLE in this week's issue. "I needed to do that to see Will outside of husband and see him as a human being."
"Will comes on the show for two episodes, and we talk about redefining our relationship, going from calling ourselves married to becoming life partners," she says. "I felt like there was a way to speak about that that was open and transparent. But there are still aspects that are private!"
