Below is a list of celebrities who never tied the knot.

Susan Boyle

Susan Boyle found fame the moment she took the stage of Britain’s Got Talent in 2009. What makes this incredible singer a much-loved celebrity isn’t just her out-of-this-world talent for singing which captured the hearts of millions of fans almost overnight, but also the fact that she remained humble and grounded despite the fame she gained and the millions she made.

When she appeared on the show, Boyle revealed that she had never been involved in a relationship and that she had never kissed a guy. That, however, changed in 2014 when she found love. She, however, isn’t married.

Delany had her breakthrough with the role of Colleen McMurphy on the ABC television drama China Beach (1988–1991), for which she received the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series in 1989 and 1992. She went on to play other significant roles, including those in Desperate Housewives, Body of Proof, Hand of God and a lot more. Among the rest, she’s also a well-known voice actress.

In a 2006 interview, Delany said that she has been hesitant about tying the knot, adding that she hasn’t met the right one.

Anita Hill

Hill is a professor of social policy, law, and women’s studies at Brandeis University and a faculty member of the university’s Heller School for Social Policy and Management. The country learned of this courageous woman when she accused U.S. Supreme Court nominee Clarence Thomas, her supervisor at the United States Department of Education and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, of sexual harassment.

Hill, who is 66, has a long-time partner but their relationship is uncommon as they prefer not to live together and they have never tied the knot. She says she isn’t against marriage but that she hasn’t made up her mind for something like that.

Greta Garbo

Great Greta Garbo never married, had no children, and lived alone as an adult. This Swedish-American actress is considered one of the greatest there are. Her career started with the 1924 Swedish film The Saga of Gösta Berling, after which she caught the attention of Louis B. Mayer, chief executive of Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer (MGM), who brought her to Hollywood in 1925.

The most famous and most significant romance she was involved in was that with her frequent co-star John Gilbert, with whom she lived intermittently in 1926 and 1927.

Allegedly, the two were set to get married, but she left him at the altar.

Diane Keaton

Over the years, Keaton has been involved in several relationships. Among the rest, she dated director Woody Allen during her role in the 1969 Broadway production of Play It Again, Sam. Later, she had on-again, off-again relationship with Al Pacino, and dated Warren Beatty, but she never married.

Speaking of it, she said in a 2010 interview, “I don’t think that because I’m not married it’s made my life any less. That old maid myth is garbage.” At the age of 50, Keaton became a mother after she adopted her two children. “Motherhood has completely changed me. It’s just about like the most completely humbling experience that I’ve ever had.”

Coco Chanel

Coco Chanel, the fashion designer who changed the course of women’s fashion and is known for her timeless designs, trademark suits and little black dresses, believed that she didn’t need a man to make her happy. She never got married but rumors are she was the mistress of a lot of successful businessmen, models, and celebrities.

Oprah Winfrey

Oprah has been together with the love of her life, Stedman Graham, for over 30 years, but the two never married. In fact, he proposed to her when he called on her show back in 1987 and said, “I want you to marry me. I think it’s time.” She said yes, and the two even planned a wedding but then decided to not tie the knot. In fact, she believes one of the reasons they are still together is that they never married.

“No question about it — we would not stay married, because of what that would have meant to him, and I would have had my own ideas about it. I have not had one regret about that,” she told Yahoo.

The couple doesn’t have any children. It’s not that they didn’t want to become parents, but Oprah believed that being a mother asks for the ultimate sacrifice and she holds mothers in the “highest regard.”
