Monday's "Red Table Talk" conversation includes the topic of adultery.
A clip of the Facebook Watch series shared by People magazine shows Jada Pinkett Smith, who hosts the show with daughter Willow and mom Adrienne Banfield-Norris, asking therapist/author Esther Perel for "alternatives of divorce."
"Everybody thinks that as soon as you find out there’s an affair you got to get a divorce,” said Pinkett Smith, 47, who previously divulged on the show she's "not mature enough to have a divorce."
“I am not of that persuasion," said Perel, "because I think that there are many relational betrayals – contempt and neglect and violence and indifference, and nobody tells people, ‘Leave, leave, get the hell out, get the hell out.' And especially on women, it’s the real new pressure. God forbid you still would love the person who actually cheated on you. Maybe that person is a lot of things and cheated on you."
This seemed to strike a chord with Pinkett Smith, who described the sentiment as "real talk."
"It’s like the shame of staying, now that you can go, you’ve got to get out,” added Perel.
"I so relate to that," Pinkett Smith responded, "because I’m asked a lot about, ‘Is there infidelity in your relationship with Will?' And it’s like, ‘No,' but there have been other betrayals of the heart that have been far bigger than I could even think in regards to an infidelity situation.”
Pinkett Smith and Will Smith, 50, who wed in 1997, have both spoken candidly about the challenges they've faced during their union.
Smith, as a guest on "Red Table" in October, recalled "failing miserably" during a time when his wife "woke up and cried for 45 days straight." In a follow-up episode, Smith explained, "We essentially had to destroy our marriage," but added "divorce was never even an option."
On the episode, Pinkett Smith said she and her husband have nixed the idea of being married.
"Will and I have decided to even throw away the concept of marriage," she shared. "It's a life partnership in the sense that we created a foundation together that we know is for this lifetime."
He added, "There's nothing that could happen that we won't be together and love each other."
Last month, Smith revealed on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" the "Red Table" conversations are so honest, he can't tune in.
"No, I don't watch it," Smith said. "They're tellin' all our business."
The "Aladdin" actor acknowledged the segments he "could bear" were "actually fantastic."
