While TLC has taught us that having multiple husbands or wives is illegal, there ain’t no law no place that says a person can’t develop meaningful relationships and casual encounters with whoever they want. It’s glorious in it’s way.
Now Willow Smith, daughter of Jada Pinkett and Will Smith, has revealed to the world she follows the laid back guidelines of the love that took over the 60’s.
Jada was on her mom’s Red Table Talk show when the 20 year old told her mother and grandmother the news.
“With polyamory,” she said. “I feel like the main foundation is the freedom to be able to create a relationship style that works for you and not just [to be] stepping into monogamy because that’s what everyone around you says is the right thing to do.
“So I was like, how can I structure the way that I approach relationships with that in mind? Also, doing research into polyamory, the main [reason] …why divorces happen is infidelity.”
Willow’s grandmother speculated that the lifestyle was more about lots of sex, to which Willow replied;
“I mean, I’ll give you an example. Let’s say you haven’t always been the kind of person that wanted to have sex all the time, but your partner is. Are you gonna be the person to say, you know, ‘Just because I don’t have these needs, you can’t have them either?’ And so that’s kind of one of the reasons why I actually was interested in poly because I was introduced to it through kind of a nonsexual lens,” she shared.
“In my friend group, I’m the only polyamorous person, and I have the least sex out of all of my friends.”
