Oprah Winfrey reveals why she never got married: ‘I didn’t want the sacrifices’

January 16, 2020January 16, 20202(Independent)Oprah Winfrey has revealed why she never married her partner, despite them being together for more than 30 years.In an essay published in O Magazine, the media mogul opened up about her relationship with Stedman Graham, who proposed in 1993.The 65-year-old said that there is a good reason the couple never tied the knot, admitting that she had doubts shortly after they got engaged. “I realised I didn’t actually want a marriage,” Winfrey wrote.“I wanted to be asked. I wanted to know 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.”The chat show host went on to explain that both she and Graham believe that if they had got married they would not still be together.Instead, Winfrey attributes the longevity of their relationship to Graham having an identity beyond being “Oprah’s man,” as well as the fact that they “relish seeing the other fulfil and manifest their destiny and purpose.”“Anyone who’s ever met him is always amazed by what a genuine gentleman he is,” Winfrey wrote.“He’s so positive. Wants the best for me and everyone he knows. He’s appropriately named because he’s steady as a mountain. Even-tempered, accountable, trustworthy, patient.”The author went on to reveal that she defines her relationship with Stedman as a “spiritual partnership”, citing spiritual teacher Gary Zukav’s definition of the term, which is a “partnership between equals for the purpose of spiritual growth”.
