They've been the subject of the divorce rumour mill over a number of years, and yet, celebville's most loved couple have been staying the course.

What is it about Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith that makes us believe that, even in Hollywood, love can conquer all. It seems they both have a genuine affection for each other, and after being married for almost 20 years, it's true love.

Here's a little refresher course on what makes this couple marriage goals.

Life partners

Speaking during an interview on Tidal's Rap Radar podcast, the Suicide Squad star - who also has son 25-year-old Trey from a previous relationship - said: "We don't even say we're married anymore. We refer to ourselves as life partners."

"We are family"

Pinkett Smith  46, claimed last month that although split rumours frequently circle the pair, they're not even remotely close to ever calling it quits. She said: "I'm just, like, keep [the divorce rumours] coming. Here's the thing about Will and I - [we] are family. That is never going down. It's just not. Ever."

F*ck the rumours

"I've heard all the things - their marriage is not real, he's gay, she's gay, they swing. But at the end of the day, people have to believe what they have to believe. I'll tell you what, it's too hard to be in a pretend marriage. Life's too short for that one," Pinkett Smith told Atlanta's Q100.


My man

"You gotta trust who you're with, and at the end of the day, I'm not here to be anybody's watcher. I'm not his watcher. He's a grown man. I trust that the man that Will is is a man of integrity," - Jada Pinkett Smith on The Howard Stern Show

Divorce drama

"In the interest of redundant, repetitious, over & over-again-ness... Jada and I are...NOT GETTING A DIVORCE!!!!!!!!!!!!! : -) I promise you all - if I ever decide to divorce my Queen - I SWEAR I'll tell you myself! #‎Dumb‬ People Should Have to Wear Scarlet D's." Smith posted to Facebook after the rumour mill went into overdrive.
