Will Smith & Jada living an alternative lifestyle?

Will Smith and Jada Pinket have an open marriage? I'm not so surprised by that as I am by the fact that he actually admitted to something like it in this article.

-----------------------------------------------------------------


"In our marriage vows, we didn't say 'forsaking all others,'" Will Smith adds - though he insists he'd never cheat on Jada without asking her permission.

"The vow that we made was that you will never hear that I did something after the fact.

"If it came down to it, then one [spouse] can say to the other, 'Look, I need to have sex with somebody. I'm not going to if you don't approve of it - but please approve of it.'"

I think a major celebrity admitting to an alternative lifestyle (poly, open marriage, whatever it is) could be a HUGE step in encouraging more tolerance and acceptance of such lifestyles by the mainstream public. What do you think?

Dear big tall long haired guy in the fedora at the club last night

Since you claimed to know me, maybe you read my LJ. So here's a thought:

If a girl doesn't recognize you, know you, or have any idea who you are...it's probably not a good idea to grab her by the hair and pull her head back.

I'm used to guys in clubs having poor boundaries or not understanding that you don't touch a girl without her permission. So I didn't get upset, fight back, sick my friends on you or report you to the bouncer. And even if you were some one that I knew (as you claim) I don't have the kind of relationship with any of my friends or acquaintances in which I invite, enjoy, practice or allow any kind of rough man handling like that. Which leads me to believe that this wasn't a case of me not recognizing you, it was a case of you thinking I was some one else.

It's a dark club, mistakes happen. But please, the next time you make a mistake like that, at least apologize.
