Oprah Winfrey revealed that she and Stedman Graham do not have plans of getting married even if they have been enjoying each other’s company for 27 years now.  During her interview with Shaun Robinson she was asked if she will never get married, she said, “Yes.”  Shaun asked, “Is that your final answer?” she laughed and replied:

“You’re good. You didn’t just come with no red carpet questions. That’s my final answer. I think it’s really interesting that you would ask it because I thought about it again at Tina Turner’s wedding because Tina [said], ‘Oprah, you need to do this.’ Well it took [her] until 75 to do it. Now you’re telling me I need to do it. I was just thinking, would things really be different? I don’t think so. I think my final answer is I’m gonna leave this earth as a never married woman, and that’s really okay with me. Stedman would tell you Shaun, if you ever interviewed him, he would tell you [that] had we married, we would not be together.”

Shaun asked, “Really? Why is that?”  Oprah said:

“Because he’s a traditional man and this is a very untraditional relationship. I think it’s acceptable as a relationship, but if I had the title ‘wife,’ hmmmm. I think there would be some other expectations of what a wife is and what a wife does. First of all you gotta come home sometimes.  I think it’s time for this interview to end.”

At this point, they are happy even without marriage, are they?
