If you’re like me (and that means you openly admit to some of your insecurities) the thought of your husband going out with another woman sends you into a downright Waiting To Exhale-like spiral. OK, maybe I’m being dramatic, but you get my point. Don’t mess with my man.

Jada Pinkett Smith, however, is so secure in her marriage she doesn’t think about things like that. The Magic Mike star sat down with Howard Stern where she commented on a statement she previously made that led fans to believe she and Will are in an open marriage.

“Here’s the deal about that, Howard. You know, you’ve gotta trust who you’re with, and at the end of the day, right, I’m not here to be anybody’s watcher. I’m not his watcher. He’s a grown man,” she said. “And here’s what I trust: I trust that the man that Will is, is a man of integrity. So, he’s got all the freedom in the world. He’s got all the freedom in the world, and as long as Will can look himself in the mirror and be okay, I’m good.”

Snatches lessons from Jada’s relationship because whatever they have going on, works!
