Pinkett Smith asked her daughter how she arrived to find out the fact to which Willow Smith stated, “With Polyamory, I think the main premise is the freedom to be able to create a relationship style that works for you. And not just stepping into uniformity because all the people around you say that the right thing to do is to do it. “
“So, I was like, how can I structure the way that I keep in mind the relationship with that ?,” Little Smith said. “Also, doing research into polyandry, the main reasons why monogamous relationships – or why marriages, why divorces occur – is infidelity.”
“When you were like, ‘Hey, this is my take off’, I was like, ‘I’ve got it all over,” Pinkett Smith said. “Wanting to set up your life in such a way that you can have what you want, I think anything happens as long as the intentions are clear. You know what I mean?”
Smith’s grandmother said, “For someone like me, it seems that this is really just centered around sex,” although she admitted to considering herself.
“Even outside the counseling you get from your father before marriage, ’cause most people get married, you know, they’ll get counseling from their pastor, because there’s a religious aspect to it, a god aspect, Jada,” Banfield Norris said. “And we had a deep conversation, what does this mean for us? What do we want to make for ourselves? And we really talk about polyamory, and was that something we wanted to explore? We had that conversation. “
But, for Smith, it is clearly less about sex and more about freedom.
“In my friend group, I’m the only polygamous person, and I have the least sex out of all my friends,” she said.
