In a statement, Jada has offered some insight in how the pair had to redefine what marriage meant to them.

I needed a different form to dissolve all the expectations that I had of a marriage. I needed to do that to see Will outside of husband and see him as a human being. We have all these expectations, ‘Oh, this is what a husband is. This is what a wife is.’ I started dissolving all the ideas and expectations and labels.

As far as what viewers can expect from the discussion about their marriage,

Will comes on the show for two episodes, and we talk about redefining our relationship, going from calling ourselves married to becoming life partners. I felt like there was a way to speak about that that was open and transparent. But there are still aspects that are private!
