    I agree that celebrities aren't the best source for marriage advice. However, keep in mind that Utah with its high LDS population usually ranks 15-20 in the nation in divorce rates and is currently 9th in the nation in the percentage of 30-year-olds who have been divorced. Also, our high rates of suicide along with high rates of Rx drug misuse and abuse do not exactly suggest happy marriage and family life.

    I hope people do not get their relationship/marriage counsel from celebrities, whose marriages are often troubled or headed for divorce.

    Latter-day Saints have much better places to go for advice and counsel on marraige than the Smith's. Local and general church leaders' counsel and the proclamation on the family for starters, not to mention superb handbooks and scripture.

    Deseret News needs to change the wording of the title. It strongly implies that Will Smith has had marriage infidelity. This is very poor journalism editing, and the attempt to get people to read this article. After reading this article, Jada states that Will Smith has not committed infidelity, but those that only read the head lines will believe he has.

    At least theyve found a way to make it work tmand to stay together-unlike many celebrity couples/marriages, so, good for them!

    And, no, I dont understand what these bullet points even mean.
