Jada Pinkett Smith and Will Smith got married on New Years Eve (many years ago!) and one would think that would be an amazing night to celebrate their anniversary each year – but it turns out they actually don’t!
On a recent episode of Red Table Talk, Jada Pinkett Smith addressed the topic of wedding anniversaries and she shared why her and Will no longer celebrate theirs. It comes down to the fact that it IS on New Years Eve, and they have different ideas of how they like to spend the start of a new year.
“Usually, Will on New Year’s likes to be in an adventure in the world somewhere. There’s no telling where he’s gonna be. I don’t wanna be out in the world. He now has the freedom [to] go and have an awesome adventure of some kind.”
However, Jada prefers to stay in on NYE, and relax. “It’s more a life partnership, so it’s not steeped in that day. We don’t really celebrate that day anymore in that sense, because the context of our union is totally different.”
Will and Jada are one of our favorite couples because they are so comfortable in their lives together they are also able to nurture their lives as individuals. It’s so powerful a statement and it’s something inspirational we can all learn from!
