The “Bright” star, 49, celebrated his 20th marriage anniversary to Jada by sharing a lovely throwback photo from their nuptials back in 1997. He also shared what he’s learned since they got married and all the valuable lessons he has learned since then.
“20 Years Ago Today we held hands and walked naively down that aisle. Here’s what I’ve learned since,” The “Men in Black” actor started. “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,” continued the former Fresh Prince. “I have learned that Love is Listening. Love is Giving. Love is Freedom.”
In a simple, yet powerful closing sentence, he made a promise to the love of his life. “Happy Anniversary, My Queen! I am forever Devoted to Nurturing your Deepest Truth,” he concluded the post.
The Hollywood star has opened up about how the two have avoided joint counseling to focus on their personal issues. He said: “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.”
Jada also talked about the longstanding relationship in an interview with Howard Stern, back in June of 2015, agreeing with Will’s statement that keeping a marriage alive is a never ending process.
“You’ve got to be strong … it takes work,’” the “Girls Trip” star said, ”Thank God I have a husband who’s just a gangster partner because can you just imagine taking that road together from 25 to 44?”
The “Independence Day” actor has talked about the challenges and joy of his high-profile marriage. In 2015, he opened up in an interview about the challenges of both him and Jada having demanding careers. “Jada and I have struggled with that a little bit,” he said at the time. “The problem is one person is in work mode while the other person is in chill mode. Then it’s like you’re both trying to come up.”
Will and Jada tied the knot on December 31, 1997, and are parents of Jaden, 19, and Willow, 17.
Congrats to the legendary Hollywood couple on their milestone day!
