Jada Pinkett Smith is praying for troubled relationships everywhere in her latest Instagram post - but it seems as if her own marriage is doing just fine.

The 46-year-old posted a smiling family photo on Instagram Saturday, which was later re-posted by husband Will Smith, and opened up about how 'painful' it is to see marriages 'dissolve around' her.

In the photo, Jada was seen grinning next to her stepson Trey, 25, her 17-year-old daughter Willow and husband Will Smith.

Marriage on the rocks? Jada Pinkett Smith posts happy family photo on Instagram Saturday along with cryptic caption about troubled marriages

The smiling family was decked out in color coordinated blue and black workout gear in front of blowing palm trees in the California sun but the caption that the mother of three posted didn't match the happy image.

'I’ve been watching a lot marriages dissolve around me. It’s been really painful,' she wrote in the reflective post.

'Marriages change. Sometimes they need to be reimagined and transformed,' the Girls Trip star wrote. 'Sometimes they are simply over ... but either way, I pray that folks going thru this painful transition find the patience and the love within to not throw the "babies" out with the bath water.'

One of her babies was missing from the family Instagram photo, 20-year-old Jaden Smith, who did not let the slight go unnoticed.

'Where the hell am I?' he joked to his mother in the comments. 

'In my heart,' Jada replied. 'You would be right here if u weren't working. We miss u.'

It was unclear which dissolved marriages the Baltimore native was referring to in her Instagram post but suffice it to say it wasn't her own.

The Smiths have frequently been on the receiving end of divorce rumors for the last two decades but the duo always shuts them down.

The Fresh Prince of Bel Air star recently addressed the rumor mill in a new song To the Clique, where he raps: 'stop the divorce rumors and mind your damn business.'

While the couple seems to have all the relationship kinks worked out now, when they got together back in 1995, the union caused quite the scandal.

At the time, Will was married to his first wife Sheree Zampino Fletcher who is also Trey's mother.

Pinkett Smith sat down with Sheree in May on her Facebook Watch series Red Table Talk for a tearful conversation about dating Will when he was still married.

'Because I did not understand marriage. I didn't understand divorce. I will say that I probably should've fell back,' the star admitted.

Sheree fired back: 'You think?' 

Ultimately Sheree and Jada have maintained a healthy and happy relationship since then.
