Oprah Winfrey and Stedman Graham have been together for 31 years, and if they had gotten married officially years ago, she doesn’t know what would have happened because she is not God. It is still our prayer and hope that Oprah and Stedman would do the right thing, set a good example, and go ahead and get married even now because they are both Christians. Also, Oprah should be careful about depicting the sins of the church on Greenleaf when she is living in sin herself. –BCNN1 Editors
Oprah Winfrey believes her now 31-year relationship with Stedman Graham would’ve fallen apart if they’d ever gone down the aisle together.
‘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,”‘ the 63-year-old media mogul told the September issue of Vogue.
Though she’d had a temporary engagement to Stedman in 1992 she told Vogue this year that if they’d wed, ‘We would not have stayed together, because marriage requires a different way of being in this world.’
She’s maintained that her 66-year-old boyfriend’s ‘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.’
The lesson of remaining unmarried, to her, is: ‘Live life on your own terms.’
