Oprah explains why she will never get married

Oprah Winfrey recently explained to Vogue why she and longtime partner Stedman Graham have never tied the knot and why they never will.

“The only time I brought it up was when I said to Stedman, ‘What would have happened if we have actually gotten married?’” she said. “And the answer is: ‘We wouldn’t be together.’ We would not have stayed together, because marriage requires a different way of being in this world. His interpretation of what it means to be a husband and what it would mean for me to be a wife would have been pretty traditional, and I would not have been able to fit into that.” 

Oprah has been in a relationship with Stedman since 1986. The 63-year-old media icon also explained that not being married taught her to "live life on your own terms." 


Hey, marriage isn't for everyone. Do what works for your relationship (and, protect your coins).
