It’s not always sunshine and butterflies
Talk to any married couple these days and they will tell you that marriage is not the easiest thing in the world. In fact, it might just be the hardest. We are conditioned when we are young, to believe that we will someday meet “the one” and that our lives will end up in a “happily ever after”… thanks Disney. Unfortunately, we don’t live in Walt’s world and spending the rest of your life with one person can be pretty difficult.
Before we seem all doom and gloom, we have to admit that marriage can be a wonderful, happy, funny, and amazing time. But with everything in life, it can get tough. Hollywood stars Will and Jada Smith have recently opened up about a dark period in their marriage but said couples counseling helped them come out stronger than ever.
Contrary to popular belief, counseling isn’t just for doomed couples
Will and Jada Smith have a relationship that is admired by people worldwide. I mean, just take a look at Will’s birthday post for Jada last year! It read, “I have sung happy birthday to you 20 times and I have bought you 19 birthday presents (I was mad that one year). I have watched you blow out 693 candles (737 after tonite). I’ve told you “I love you” at least 8,285 times. And of the nearly 3.96 Billion women on the planet – there is only 1 that I want to spend the rest of my life with. Happy Birthday, my Love!”
You can’t get much better than that.
In their 19 years of marriage, the couple deals with divorce rumors that surface every couple years. The two have always spoke out against the absurd allegations, once writing: “I promise you all – if I ever decide to divorce my Queen – I SWEAR I’ll tell you myself! #Dumb People Should Have to Wear Scarlet D’s.”
Even with divorce out the window, the couple has seen a rocky patch or two. Will recently admitted that he and Jada went through counseling when their marriage hit a breaking point.
