Actor descirbes 20-year marriage as "gruelling"

In a recent interview, Will called his 20-year marriage "excruciating" and "grueling" – saying that the secret to making it work is to never quit.


Willand Jada Pinkett Smith have been married for two decades and share two children - Jaden and Willow - but do they still enjoy being married to each other?

The movie power couple have been plagued with multiple divorce rumors in the past but they're still strongly united but according to the 47-year-old actor, keeping their marriage intact is far from easy.

"We've been married 20 years and we've been asking ourselves [what’s the secret to marriage] and really at the end of the day it’s just not quitting,” he told Entertainment Tonight. “You can’t expect it to be easy, it’s like our marriage was the most difficult, grueling, excruciating thing that we have ever taken on in our lives. And you know were just not quitters."

Will continued by saying, "If there is a secret I would say is that we never went into working in our relationship. We only ever worked on ourselves individually, and then presented ourselves to one another better than we were previously."

So then, why do you think most Hollywood marriages don't last long?
