Kevin Hart Puts All Jokes Aside & Explains Why ‘Stepping Out His Marriage Made Him A Better Man’
Kevin Hart is everywhere these days it seems, from your TV set to the big screen you will more then likely come across the famous Philly kid. Now with a thriving career, two beautiful kids, a great friendship with his ex-wife and a new love in his life the new “King” of comedy couldn’t be happier.
The About Last Night star recently set down with a correspondent from Necole Bitchie to talk about the greatest lesson he’s learned about love, and the advice he’d give his 18-year-old self.
On explaining what he meant when he said, “Stepping out on his marriage made you a better man”.
When I say ‘make me a better man,’ [I mean] I didn’t respect the title of marriage. I got married young, and sometimes when you do things young, you act immature. You act accordingly to the young situation that you jumped into. So I was all over the place. Mentally I wasn’t ready. And I guess you could say my maturity level was nowhere near where it was supposed to be at the time. So going through those problems and doing the things that I did and arguing the way that we argued basically made me shine the light on myself and I stepped out of that situation because I didn’t like the man that I became. And I didn’t want to prevent her from doing what she wanted to do in life, which is move on and go onwards and upwards.
The greatest lessons he’s learned about love.
I think every relationship that you have is basically a stepping stone for what you’re going to do in the future. You know, everything that doesn’t go right becomes a learning experience. I’ve had relationships that haven’t been right; I’ve had some that have. Ultimately, what I’ve done is take the good from those situations and applied them to myself. Some of the bad had to do with me, so I had to change myself. But it’s all about growth. So I think within my personal situation, I’ve grown from them and right now I’ve applied the things that I’ve learned from them to my new relationship, that’s going well. And I can honestly say that I’m in a different place mentally than I was before, which is probably why my relationship [now] is going well. I’m an adult. I’m a grown ass man.
What makes Eniko, or any woman, “marriage material” in his eyes
I found somebody who put a smile on my face. I found somebody who genuinely made me happy. Which people don’t realize is not an easy task. You know, the word ‘happy’ is a strong word. I’m not talking about facilitating happiness, I’m talking about genuinely making me happy. And she does that. Eniko is a strong woman in my life. Not [just] in the way she embraces me but from the way that- in the beginning of our relationship, for years I kept my kids away from what we were doing until I felt [they] were ready and when I finally did [put her around my kids] she embraced that as well. And the way that she stepped up to the plate and just accepted me for who I am, accepted me as a man coming in with kids and not even blinking an eye. I think she’s shown that she’s a woman who has my back. And that’s what you want when you’re in the position that I’m in and you’re in the entertainment business. Everybody’s going to question everything you do. Everybody’s going to question everything you say, but you have to come to a strong decision of what’s right and what’s wrong. And right now, the one thing I can say is right is having that woman in my life.
