Whoopi Goldberg, acclaimed actress and host of The View, recently opened up about her perspective on relationships and why traditional marriage doesn’t align with her preferences. At 68, Goldberg clearly understands what she wants from her personal life, and it doesn’t include the conventional idea of settling down.


Embracing Independence Over Marriage

In a candid conversation on the Don Lemon Show, Goldberg expressed her contentment with being fundamentally self-reliant. With a family that includes a daughter, son-in-law, grandchildren, and even a great-grandchild, she feels her life is full enough without the addition of a traditional partner. Goldberg’s preference for what she refers to as ‘hit-and-runs’—casual encounters without the commitment of an overnight stay—highlights her desire for independence.


Challenging Societal Expectations

Goldberg has faced societal labels and expectations when discussing her relationship choices. Despite previously trying to convince herself of the merits of settling down, she has come to a surprising realization that married life is not for her. Her mother’s advice to simply ‘throw a party from now on and not get married anymore’ resonates with Goldberg’s current outlook on life.

Consistent Views on Marriage

The actress has consistently realized that marriage doesn’t suit her lifestyle. In a 2016 interview with the New York Times Magazine, she famously said, ‘I don’t want someone living in my house,’ reinforcing her stance on maintaining her personal space and freedom.


Goldberg’s frankness about her relationship preferences offers a refreshing perspective on how individuals can lead fulfilling lives without adhering to traditional marital norms.
