Jada Pinkett Smith is giving her take on staying with a cheating mate.

After telling Redbook she would never abandon her hubby Will Smith (unless he did something bad to their kids), the outspoken actress hit Facebook to dole out some relationship advice.

"Should I stay with a mate after she or he has cheated on me? (This is not referring to habitual cheaters. That is a different matter.) This is a very personal choice, and there is no right or wrong answer," Jada wrote on her page. "If your partner is remorseful and is willing to work it out, I would suggest trying to look at it from this vantage point. My observation has been that when most people cheat, they are trying to solve a problem."

"They are usually in some kind of emotional trouble or confusion that they believed the cheating would relieve," Jada went on. "What's interesting is that most of the time the cheating has nothing to do with YOU. Now the question becomes, are you willing to put all ego aside and reach for some deep compassion to try to figure out what the trouble is, and, as partners, try to solve it?"

"Know this, if someone has cheated on you who truly loves you, they have hurt themselves as much as they have hurt you," she continued.  

This isn't the first time Jada has gotten candid when it comes to discussing relationships.

Back in April, the Madagascar star hit Facebook to clarify comments she made to HuffPostLive regarding rumors that she and Will have an open marriage.

"Here is how I will change my statement...Will and I BOTH can do WHATEVER we want, because we TRUST each other to do so. This does NOT mean we have an open relationship...this means we have a GROWN one," she wrote.

So, tell us, do you agree with Jada's sentiments about cheating?
