For Will Smith and Jada Pinkett, December 31st is not only the New Year’s Eve but also a love fest. On this day, they tied the knot and had a luxurious wedding 20 years ago, and now, the two are considered one of Hollywood’s long-term couples.
Sweetest congrats to his wife
To mark the anniversary, the 49-year-old actor wrote a touching post on his Instagram, which he dedicated to his beloved wife. The fans of the star now have a chance to admire the archival photograph taken during the wedding ceremony of Will and Jada in 1997.
The photo quickly got more than 1 million likes as well as hundreds of comments and congratulations from followers.
20 Years Ago Today we held hands and walked naively down that aisle. Here’s what I’ve learned since. . Love is Like Gardening… I have learned to focus on HELPING you to BLOSSOM into what YOU want to be (into what you were born to be)… Rather than Demanding that you become what my Fragile Ego needs you to be. . I’ve learned to take pleasure in Nourishing YOUR dreams… Rather than wrestling with you to Fulfill my Selfish Needs & Satiate My Insecurities. . I have learned that Love is Listening. Love is Giving. Love is Freedom. . Happy Anniversary, My Queen! I am forever Devoted to Nurturing your Deepest Truth.
In a heartfelt caption, the actor confessed that he had learned some important things while being married. Instead of forcing his wife to become someone he wanted her to be, Will realized that love was “like gardening” and learned to focus on helping Jada bloom and achieve her dreams. An amazing lesson! The actor also added:
I have learned that Love is Listening. Love is Giving. Love is Freedom.
Pinkett also has some advice to share. A couple of years ago, she opened up about their relationship and stated that their marriage is built on trust. Will and Jada absolutely trust each other. She does not control her spouse, believing that he is an adult who can make his own sound decisions.
At the end of the day, I’m not here to be anybody’s watcher … he’s a grown man.
She also added that the key to their strong relationship was the simple fact that they really like spending time with each other, learning together and laughing.
Yeah, I guess that’s the secret. Yeah, we just really like each other!
