It’s no secret, marriage takes work. Just ask 47-year-old Will Smith and his 44-year-old wife Jada Pinkett-Smith, who have been married close to twenty years.

In a recent interview, Will says that they’ve had therapy, to work on their union:

I’ve done a lot of marriage counseling. What happens in a marriage once you do counseling, the truth comes out. And you sit across from your wife and you’ve said all of your truth and she has said all of her truth.

You look at each other and you can’t imagine you could ever possibly love each other again now the truth is out. It creates a dark moment. But for me it’s the dark before the dawn. When the truth comes out and people have to say who they are and what they think, you get to know who they are.

He adds,

I think that’s the cleansing before you get to the other side that is understanding and moving forward in our relationship.

This is the first marriage for Jada and second for Will.
