Will Smith's Guide to Marriage

It's hard to believe, but actor Will Smith recently turned 40. It seems like only yesterday that the Fresh Prince was rapping his way into hearts across America, terrorizing Bel Air with his West Philadelphia ways.

Now, he's one of the most sought-after movie stars on the planet. His films have grossed more than $5 billion around the world.

Barbara Walters interviewed Big Willie Style for her special on 2008's Most Fascinating People, which aired tonight.

He's gotten wiser with age. After a failed first marriage, he tied the knot with Jada Pinkett Smith, and he's got a new outlook that all of us married folk could learn from, especially in a country where half of our "lifelong" commitments fail.

On his second time around, Smith says, divorce is not an option.

"If divorce is an option; you're gonna get divorced," he told Walters. Spoken like a man with four decades of experience, and I don't think he was acting this time.
