59-year-old Oprah Winfrey to date has never gotten married and she does not have any hope of getting married anytime soon, or at all even.
Despite being in a relationship with Stedman Graham for 21 years, Oprah is comfortable leaving the world as a never married woman. One of her friends, Tina Turner earlier in the year walked down the aisle and urged her to do the same but she is not interested. “I think that it’s interesting that you would ask it because I thought about it again at Tina Turner’s wedding,” Oprah revealed. “Because Tina was like, ‘Oprah, you need to do this. You need to do it.’ I was just thinking, ‘Well, OK, would things really be different?’ And no, I don’t think so.”
She said that if she and Stedman had actually gotten married, then, the two of them would not be together at this time. “If you ever interviewed him, he would tell you that had we married, we would not be together today,” Oprah said of Stedman. “Because he’s a traditional man and this is a very untraditional relationship.”
In addition to that, she does not think that wife duties fit her well. “I think it’s acceptable as a relationship, but if I had the title ‘wife,’ I think there would be other expectations for what a wife is and what a wife does. First of all, you’ve got to come home sometimes,” Oprah laughed.
