Jada Pinkett Smith recently revealed that changing her understanding of gender roles as they relate to marriage strengthened her 16-year union with Will Smith.
The "Gotham" star, 42, and the "Fresh Prince" actor's almost two decade-long marriage is somewhat of a rarity in Hollywood and subsequently it is often subject to media scrutiny. In a recent interview Jada revealed why their union has lasted so long in an industry where most marriages fail.
"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," she told Net-a-Porter's The Edit. more >>

The new HBO series "The Leftovers" brings the Christian rapture theory to the forefront of secular culture showcasing a side of the faith not embraced by the entire body. The show, along with the upcoming "Left Behind" movie, exposes droves of non-believers to the concept of Jesus mysteriously rapturing a percentage of the world's population out of it with no real explanation at the time.
"The Leftovers" builds on this concept by telling the rapture story from a point of view that removes the faith aspect and deals with the nature of those left on Earth. The original "Left Behind" series takes the more traditional evangelical route, and it is unclear at this time if the upcoming film will follow suit with previous iterations.
The rapture concept, while popular among evangelical circles, strays far from the teachings of the historical Church and an accurate interpretation of scripture, according to Christian apologist and philosopher Dr. William Lane Craig. more >>
Are Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald engaged? New speculation has begun since her sister, Jill, published a tweet using Jessa's first name and Ben's last name together.
Jessa and Ben have been together for some time and even went to Central America with family on a mission trip. They were accompanied by several members of the Duggar family and members of S.O.S. Ministries, and many thought that the trip could lead to a marriage proposal or a huge announcement from the family once they returned.
The couple's relationship has been prominently featured on TLC's "19 Kids & Counting," which simultaneously captured special moments for Jessa's sister Jill as she got engaged and married Derick Dillard. While the Duggar family is generally open about their relationships, there is bound to be some amount of privacy given, especially soon after the Duggar wedding. more >>
The world's first ever all-atheist TV channel officially launched Tuesday, with American Atheist president David Silverman declaring it is geared toward all atheists, everywhere. Silverman also criticized TV channels that present religion as truthful, using as an example the History Channel's "The Bible" miniseries in 2013.
"Atheist TV is geared toward every atheist in the broadest possible sense. Whether they call themselves atheists or skeptics or humanists or any of the other labels that people use to identify themselves, Atheist TV is for them," Silverman announced in a speech at the launch party.
He noted that the number of non-believers in the United States is on the rise, making up as much as one-fifth of the population. Silverman then criticized TV channels that, despite those statistics, continue "kowtowing" to religious preferences. more >>
