On last Wednesday’s Red Table Talk on Facebook Watch, Willow, 20, spoke with mom, Jada Pinkett Smith and grandmother, Adrienne Banfield-Norris.
“I honestly couldn’t see myself going past two outside of myself,” Willow said.
Willow publicly came out to her mom and grandmother in the episode as a polyamorous person.
“Let’s say you haven’t always been the person wanting sex all the time, but your partner is. Are you going to be the person to say, ‘Just because I don’t have these needs, you can’t have them either?'”
“That’s one of the reasons why I was interested in poly because I was introduced to it through kind of a nonsexual lens. In my friend group, I’m the only polyamorous person and I have the least sex out of all of my friends.”
And when it comes to the subject of marriage, Willow said, “The history of marriage really irks me.”
“Just the history of marriage as a whole and what it has represented over the years, for women in particular,” she said.
“I feel like the only way that I would get married is — let’s say me and my partner or partners wants to help people, and we need to put our finances together in order to make that vision happen.”
She added, “That’s the only way I could see myself getting married.”
