"What I found is divorce just can't be an option," Will told Ellen at the time. "It's really that simple. And I think that's the problem with L.A. - there are so many options. So a huge part of the success for [Jada] and I is that we just removed the other options."
In 2005, Access spoke with Will while he was promoting "Hitch" to talk about the secret to making a marriage work.
"Jada and I spend a lot of time studying relationships and why things work and why things don't work," Will told Access Hollywood at the time. "You've gotta love every aspect, you've gotta love it from every angle," Will later added.
