Will Smith hasn’t been on Instagram for long, but he’s already mastered the art of writing a caption to make all of social media swoon.
Twenty years ago, on New Year’s Eve, Smith and his wife, actress Jada Pinkett-Smith, exchanged vows and in honor of their 20th wedding anniversary, Smith shared a throwback wedding photo with the sweetest caption ever. He shared some marriage wisdom for the masses too. Smith broke down some of the most important lessons marriage has taught him over the years, and of course, they’re major marriage gems.
Smith revealed that he has learned that focusing on his wife’s growth is far more important than demanding that she change anything to match his own needs. Gem!
He goes on to discuss the importance of couples listening to one another and supporting and fueling each other’s dreams. The post already has one-million likes and counting.
Smith doesn’t speak about the intimate details of their marriage publicly very often, but when he does, he almost always drops a gem, or three to live by.
In 2011, Will and Jada stopped by the ESSENCE offices and while he was waiting on her to finish a video taping, he shared some marriage advice with me — I was a newlywed at the time. The one that stuck with me was about the importance of giving each other space when you get home from work. You can read the other gems he gave me here.
Don’t you just love their love?
