Oprah Winfrey, Billionaire media mogul has explained her reason for never getting married despite that she had a relationship of over 30 years with Graham Stedman.
According to Oprah, she had doubts after they got engaged and realized she “didn’t actually want a marriage.”
This the business mogul said while speaking to People Magazine during an interview.
Oprah revealed why she accepted Graham’s proposal in 1993 but never officially tied the knot with him, and also why they might never get married.
She said: “In 1993, the moment after I said yes to his proposal, I had doubts. I realized I didn’t actually want a marriage.
“I wanted to be asked. I wanted to know if he felt I was worthy of being his missus, but I didn’t want the sacrifices, the compromises, the day-in-day-out commitment required to make a marriage work.
“My life with the show was my priority, and we both knew it.
“He and I agree that had we tied the marital knot, we would not still be together.” She said
She said they are both happy that they didn’t take the marriage step and it is the best decision they made.
She said when she met him, she thought he was a play and doubted that he was good enough and that she wasn’t impressed.
She also noted that he was polite and the guy who sits with an ailing friend. Tall and handsome, for sure. But actually too handsome, I thought, to be interested in me.
“I figured he must be a player. So did all my producers.
“They warned me not to get involved with that Stedman guy,” she said.
