Jada previously opened up about how she and Will have put in a lot of work to keep their marriage together.

“Personally, in my journey, what I had to realize was that I had to find all the peace, love and joy within my heart in order to bring it to the table to share,” the mother of two said in an episode of Red Table Talk back in February, PEOPLE reports. “Will had to go away and find the peace, love and joy in his heart to share.”

“So that’s what we share instead of our traumas from our childhood, all of our insecurities and fears that we usually come to the table within our relationships to have our partners fix,” she continued.

For this latest episode, Jada, Adrienne and Perel explore the “alternatives to divorce.”

“Everybody thinks as soon as you find out there’s been an affair you have to get a divorce,” Pinkett Smith said, with Perel replying, “I’m not of that persuasion because I think there are many relational betrayals. Contempt, neglect, and violence and indifference and nobody tells people, ‘Leave, leave, get the hell out.’”

She continued, “And especially on women, it’s the real new pressure. God forbid you still love the person who actually cheated on you. Maybe that person is a lot of things and cheated on you. It’s like the shame of staying, now that you can go you’ve got to get out.”

Don’t miss the conversation when “Red Table Talk” airs Monday at 9:00 a.m. PT / 12:00 p.m. ET on Facebook Watch.
