Oprah and SteadmanIt seems strange to some that after a certain age any woman would still be unmarried, but increasingly, more women are either waiting to tie the knot or opting out of marriage all together.

On a recent trip to India for the Jaipur Literature Festival, Oprah explained to the crowd why she hadn’t married her longtime beau, Steadman 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 said they may not have stayed together had they jumpped the broom.

“But if we [referring to Graham] were married, by now we would be divorced.”

Imagine if more people were honest about their ability or inability to be “the marrying kind,” perhaps we’d see longer committed relationships instead of so many divorces.

What do you think? Are you “the marrying kind”?

    I guess women are the marrying kind when they arent independently wealthy.

    My dad told me that he was the “marrying kind” after getting married for the 3rd time. I said ‘Dad that’s not what it means….’
