On a recent trip to India for the Jaipur Literature Festival, Oprah explained to the crowd why she hasn’t married her longtime boyfriend, Stedman Graham. Despite whatever ideas others may hold about her unmarried status, Oprah let it be known she’s “not the marrying kind.”
Oprah explained: “I know that in a country like India where women have arranged marriages that turn into love, it may seem like a mystery as to why.”
Despite being with her longtime partner for 26 years, Oprah says they may not have stayed together had they “jumped the broom.”
“But if we [referring to Stedman] were married, by now we would be divorced.”
Perhaps if more people were honest about their ability or inability to be “the marrying kind,” we would see fewer divorces.
