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.’
