Jada Pinkett Smith and Will Smith decided against prenup because ‘divorce won't be necessary'

Prior to their marriage in 1997, Jada Pinkett Smith and Will Smith decided on not having a prenuptial agreement.
For those unaware, a prenup is usually done before a marriage, outlining who is responsible for the property and finances of each partner during the marriage and where that goes after a divorce.

Well, unless you've been living under a rock this week, you'll know that Jada shocked fans after revealing she and husband Will have been 'secretly separated' for the last seven years.

Despite that, Jada says she has no plans to divorce Will, telling Hoda Kotb on the Today show that she made 'a promise that there will never be a reason for us to get a divorce'.

"We will work through whatever. And I just haven't been able to break that promise," she added.

Coinciding with that, Jada has now shared the reason why herself and Will decided against a prenuptial agreement.
Speaking to Parade, the US talkshow host said: "Listen, weddings are beautiful, but they can be very romanticized.

"I feel that was a very real moment for the two of us to look each other in the eyes, recognize that there would be tough times in this journey and to say to each other, 'No matter what, we’re going to figure it out, and that’s why we don’t need a prenup, because I’m making a promise that divorce won’t be necessary, that we will figure this out.'"

Jada continued: "And we made that promise to each other without all of the bridal wedding beauty; it was just sitting on a log in his mother’s backyard, and going, 'Hey.' Having to really look at the possibility of us not being together."

Despite not being a couple for seven years at this point, Jada reaffirmed how she and Will continue to support each other through all the challenging times.
She said: "We all have our romanticized ideas of how it all should be, and it might not show up in that way.

"But at the end of the day, do you have someone at your side that you’re willing to go through tough times with and they’re willing to go through tough times with you? I’m very lucky that I can say, 'Yes, I have someone that’s willing to do that.'"
