Oprah Winfrey Explains Why She & Stedman Graham Never Got Married

Oprah Winfrey strikes a powerful pose in her latest shoot for the September 2017 issue of Vogue, on newsstands August 22.

“Nobody believes it, but it’s true,” she told the mag. “The only time I brought it up was when I said to Stedman, ‘What would have happened if we had actually gotten married?’ 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 continued.

“Live life on your own terms,” she added.

    Don’t fool yourself Oprah, he just didn’t want to commit to you. Has nothing to do with all the silliness about it would have failed if you did. You should have moved on from him long ago.
