Oprah Never Regretted Not Having Children, Getting Married
A traditional life was never in the cards for Oprah Winfrey. For years, the 63-year-old media mogul has been transparent about many aspects of her life, including why she opted to not walk down the aisle and have children. Speaking about the Leadership Academy, she explains:
It is more rewarding than I would ever have imagined. I was doing this to help them, but it has brought a light to my life that I can’t explain. For me it was perfect, because I didn’t want babies. I wouldn’t have been a good mum for babies. I don’t have the patience. I have the patience for puppies, but that’s a quick stage! But this is so rewarding.
When people were pressuring me to get married and have children, I knew I was not going to be a person that ever regretted not having them, because I feel like I am a mother to the world’s children. Love knows no boundaries.
P.S. Do you agree with Oprah’s decision to not get married and have children?
