Oprah Winfrey and longtime honey Stedman Graham have been together for 31 years, and Queen O says she's perfectly content with their “we’re dating and it’s not complicated” relationship status.
O reiterates her reluctance to wed in an interview for the September issue of Vogue. She shares that remaining Miss Winfrey allows her to “live life on [her] own terms,” and if she's being perfectly honest, the subject of marriage never came up between her and ol’ Steddy. In fact, they both agree that if they had gotten married, they “wouldn’t be together” currently.
Winfrey continues, “We would not have stayed together, because marriage requires a different way of being in this world. 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.” You do you, Oprah boo!
We, and countless numbers of women around the world, thank you for indulging in warm and chewy chocolate-chip cookies rather than succumbing to cookie-cutter ideals. For without you, how could we possibly identify our favorite things?
