What we can learn from Jada's Smith Entanglement
The world of pop culture was abuzz this week, when Will and Jada Pinkett Smith admitted that they had some rocky times in their relationship in the past, including infidelity.
This is a perfect opportunity for Raul and Vivian to weigh in on how a relationship can change over time. This is not to judge Jada for cheating, or to call Will weak for taking her back. In fact, we take the opposite approach. Every relationship has its own rules, and every relationship involves two dynamic people who are, hopefully, always learning and improving themselves. People tend to forget that a relationship takes work. We’re too quick to judge other people for having an unusual relationship, and we shouldn’t be. Hear what Raul and Vivian have to say about being in a public relationship on this episode of God, Money & Purpose.
