When it comes to dropping gems of wisdom, media mogul and former talk show host Oprah Winfrey is the one for the job.
In a recent sit down with Vogue, Winfrey opened up about her long term relationship with Stedman Graham and why the couple never chose to tie the knot.
In the interview, Winfrey said that by not getting married, she has learned to “live life on your own terms.” She also says that the two just never discussed the topic.
“Nobody believes it, but it’s true. 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,” she said. “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.”
