Jada Pinkett Smith Says Her Marriage to Will Smith Doesn’t Have Rules Anymore

Jada Pinkett Smith says her marriage to Will Smith is stronger than ever, and one reason is because they changed the way they view each other.

"We used to have all these rules, (but) as you go on in your relationship, you just get into a flow," she told Net-A-Porter magazine.

"The thing I love is being in a place where it’s just like, Will, to me, encompasses everything. It's almost as if calling him 'my husband' is too small of a word for what he means in my life -- and especially how I feel we, as women, identify the idea of a husband. I really had to mature and expand that."

Last Minute 2014 Michigan Primary Election Primer [Video]

By Jo Anne Paul | WJIM-AM

For the first time in what is believed to be Michigan history, there is no primary challenge in the same year for the gubernatorial and U.S. Senate race.

And with the lack of big name candidates at the top of the ticket, there is concern the number of voters heading to the polls will hardly offset the cost of holding the elections.

Despite the significance of the outcome of the primary on Tuesday, fewer than one million voters in Michigan are likely to cast ballots, The Detroit News reported today. That would be even less than the all-time low numbers recorded in August 1990.

Polls are open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. EST Tuesday.

Weekend Box Office Report: ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ Conquers Movie Universe

Up until the day it opened, 'Guardians of the Galaxy' was a big question mark at the box office.

Could Marvel Studios continue its winning streak with a movie based on a practically unknown comic series that only has light connections to the rest of the films in their cinematic universe?

Early estimates had the film grossing $60 million over the weekend and that would have been perfectly OK. But then it went and eclipsed that estimate in every way.
