Rumors have been swirling about Jada Pinkett Smith’s marriage to Will Smith since the actress made cryptic comments in a recent interview. More specifically, fans and gawkers wondered whether the couple have an open marriage.

Now, Jada has directly responded to the rumors, in a way. The actress may actually have complicated the rumors a bit, since she has still not directly stated that her marriage isn’t open. That was her point, though, as she mused about what a marriage should be, and how trust and knowledge of a person are better than threats and controlling behavior.

From the Facebook post:

Open marriage?

Let me first say this, there are far more important things to talk about in regards to what is happening in the world than whether I have an open marriage or not. I am addressing this issue because a very important subject has been born from discussions about my statement that may be worthy of addressing.

The statement I made in regard to, “Will can do whatever he wants,” has illuminated the need to discuss the relationship between trust and love and how they co-exist.

Do we believe loving someone means owning them? Do we believe that ownership is the reason someone should “behave”? Do we believe that all the expectations, conditions, and underlying threats of “you better act right or else” keep one honest and true? Do we believe that we can have meaningful relationships with people who have not defined nor live by the integrity of his or her higher self? What of unconditional love? Or does love look like, feel like, and operate as enslavement? Do we believe that the more control we put on someone the safer we are? What of TRUST and LOVE?

Should we be married to individuals who can not be responsible for themselves and their families within their freedom? Should we be in relationships with individuals who we can not entrust to their own values, integrity, and LOVE…for us???

Here is how I will change my statement…Will and I BOTH can do WHATEVER we want, because we TRUST each other to do so. This does NOT mean we have an open relationship…this means we have a GROWN one.

Siempre,

J

    I already posted my comment

    Actually She did answer the question “Here is how I will change my statement…Will and I BOTH can do WHATEVER we want, because we TRUST each other to do so. This does NOT mean we have an open relationship…this means we have a GROWN one”.

    Where’s the ambiguity in that? I think what people and the media are missing, is that they a strong and solid foundation that allows them to be who they are, freely; with the knowledge that they have and can trust each other. Trusting each other that at the end of the day, they will do right by each other and their family.

    For those hoping and thinking we deserve a more “direct” answer to the question, she nor her husband HAS TO. They don’t owe us or anyone an explanation of what she did or didn’t suggest about their marriage.

    There are more serious and consequential things going on in our world, than what’s going on in the Smith family. I think she put it succinctly, to the point, with poise and dignity, as a GROWN person should.

    I feel sorry for “some” not all journalists and newspapers that have to fabricate stories to get the attention of the readers….
    but I understand, you have to be smart and have some degree of culture to write something interesting !

  • Mary

    Their marriage is their business and no one else’s.

  • kisha

    hahaha,..it’s funny because only white folks can’t decrypt the message.
    They trust and respect one another.

      Why does this have to be a black/white thing?

  • LaWanda

    I think Will and Jada’s business belongs to Will and Jada’s. Most of us can only wish our partners respected our individuality and trusted us enough to be free in our relationship, in whatever way we define that freedom. Persoanlly I love it! Great response that we clearly did not deserve Jada!

  • anne savana

    Well, well Jada why would you make a fool of yourself and your marriage playing off that you have a open marriage???
    How not cool at all sometimes it is best to KEEP YOUR BUSINESS to yourself if the marriage is on or off then get some type of counseling and then move on. It is hard enough to have a marriage to even last through all the stress that is going on in families.
    It seems strange that you are the one speaking about the Open Marriage but know one has heard from Will???
