"The pursuit of truth is the only way to be happy in this lifetime," he said.
The actor made the revelations while speaking about his memoir set to be released in November.
According to Will, Jada never believed in conventional relationships because of her family.
“Jada had family members that had an unconventional relationship. So she grew up in a way that was very different than how I grew up,” he said.
Will admitted to having endless conversations on the perfect relationship, saying they initially believed monogamy was the best option.
They later changed their setup, giving each other freedom.
“We have given each other trust and freedom, with the belief that everybody has to find their own way. And marriage for us can’t be a prison,” he said.
However, Will admitted that he would not recommend the same for anybody.
