Fact—Hollywood is no fairy tale for celeb marriages. But if there's one couple that has endured the test of time, busy schedules, and paparazzi, that's Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith. Exactly 19 years ago today, the two tied the knot in a secret ceremony at the Cloisters Castle in Maryland.
And after all those years, the Smiths seem to be going strong, giving us hope that true love is not a mirage. And how do they make it work, you ask? "You have to be there for each other. That’s how you build great relationships [...] We as men and women have to learn how to be friends with one another," Pinkett told People back in 2014. "It’s not just about loving someone. It’s about understanding, acceptance and compassion."
And as far as celebrating their love goes, the couple does the most Will and Jada thing ever—they "high-five each other and go: We survived another year, homie! Yeah!" Pure #relationshipgoals, we tell ya.
So today, in honor of their 19th wedding anniversary, we take a trip down memory lane to remember 19 times Smith and Pinkett Smith proved that love isn't dead.
Spoiler alert—there's a lot of kissing ahead.
Not to get too political, but Washington D.C. hasn’t seen that much love since ... well, probably never.
A couple that slays together, stays together.
For him, the red carpet is all about her.
We’re seriously starting to get jealous here.
He never leaves without giving her a kiss.
They are always Kiss Cam-ready.
Is it us or is it getting hot in here?
When in Paris...
We know true love, when we see it.
Do they even do anything other than kissing?
The guy in the background=all of us
Can't. Handle. The. Cuteness.
OK, fine, they are filming a movie here but we are pretty sure that’s what they look like on any given day.
Will, at some point you’re going to have to let her eat.
Chivalry is not dead.
OK, Will, just because you are such a gentleman, we’ll ignore the sweater situation going on here.
A couple of months after their wedding, the honeymoon continues…
This is what love looks like.
