Will Smith Is Amazed That He And Wife Jada Pinkett Smith Have Been Together 'More Than Half [Their] Lives'
It’s hard to believe that it’s been 20 years since Will and Jada Pinkett Smith tied the knot in a surprise wedding on New Year’s Eve.
You know who also can’t believe it? Will.
On Wednesday, as he and his Mrs. along with their children, enjoyed their well-deserved family vacation, the veteran actor took a moment of pause to share that he just realized a fascinating thing about him and his wife’s relationship.

“I just realized… This year we’ve been together more than half our Lives!,” he captioned a selfie of him and Jada looking agelessly in love.
The couple started dating in the mid-’90s as the Fresh Prince of Bel Air star finalized his divorce from ex-wife, Sheree Zampino and it’s a decision, the actress says, she isn’t proud of.
“He was ‘div,'” said Pinkett Smith 46, on her Red Table Talk Facebook live show, recalling the time she began dating Smith while his marriage to Fletcher was ending.. “The ‘orced’ hadn’t happened yet. Because I did not understand marriage, I did not understand divorce.I will say that I probably should’ve fell back.”
She continued, “I would’ve fell back because I feel like when Will and I first started dating there was this thing in my mind you did that and that’s done but that’s where I was wrong. Now being a married woman, and if Will and I were to get divorced now, my God. So when I think back to where I was, some of my insensitivities, some of my inconsideration, just in regards to you guys unwinding a marriage and me trying to get in there.”
We just can’t get enough of the Smiths.
