Jada Pinkett's Mom Once Asked Her Why She Didn't 'Just Divorce' Will Smith!

Jada Pinkett Smith is never filing for divorce!

During her latest Facebook broadcast of Red Table Talk, the actress opened up about her marriage to Will Smith, and admitted that her own mother asked her why they wouldn't just get divorced!

Adrienne's question came after Jada, 47, and Will, 50, began to call themselves "life partners" instead of "husband" and "wife."

"She was like, 'Well, why don't you guys just divorce?'" Jada recalled. "One of the ideas for me is that we've built such a beautiful community, we've built such a beautiful family… we do well together. Breaking that group and community up for me? It's just never an option."

As readers know, the actors have been married since 1997, and are parents to son Jaden, 20, and daughter Willow, 18. Will is also a father to son Trey, 26, from his previous marriage to Sheree Zampino.

While much has been speculated about Will and Jada's alleged broken relationship and secret affairs, the two have done nothing but gush about each other and voice their commitment to their family.

"I won't say that it's easy, but one of the things that Will and I take a lot of pride in is being able to balance it by really understanding our family and one another as artists," Jada said on her show. "So many of us are doing so many things. Willow's over here doing that. Trey, Jaden, Will are off doing other things. Sometimes we're in all different parts of the world. But we love doing what we love to do and we flow so much light and power to one another to do it. That's the thing that keeps us connected."

The mom-of-two added that "partnering is a lot more than romance," and maintaining a healthy relationship with someone "has a lot to do with survival, resources and just having somebody or somebodies by you that can help you figure it out."

Plus, Jada said, she's not "mature enough to have a divorce," and is not interested in dealing with the difficulties that come with breaking up a family.
