What if Oprah appointed you her spiritual adviser. And came to you one day and said: "My boyfriend and I are happy to just keep living together, and we're happy to get married, what should we do?" As her spiritual adviser what would you say?

Thanks DK! (inside joke)

  • Don't tell Gail. She won't be happy to hear that.

  • First I would wonder what in the world I was doing in that job (not a big Oprah fan) and then I would tell her to get married - can you imagine the ceremony?!?

  • I would tell her to do whatever made her happy and to ignore everyone else because it's none of their business.

  • you mean the guru needs a guru??
    i'd tell her to do what she wanted to..she has and will, anyway. but on the offchance she decided to have a wedding and reception with the whole white-tented lawn and candles and white flowers everywhere (the best look for an outdoor-evening event, not a racist statement!), that she should hire J-Lo..i hear she makes a great wedding planner. oh, and to save me a big corner piece of cake...there's more frosting!

  • I'd tell her to do whatever she and Steadman think is best for them.

    I'd also strongly encourage her to get an airtight pre-nup if they do get married.

  • I'd tell her to follow her heart as it never lies. And if that means they stay together without marriage fine. If that means they get married, fine. Whatever it is that her heart speaks.

  • If I was her spiritual advisor, I would tell her to do what makes her and her "boyfriend" happy. Not to worry about what other people thought. To live her life and be happy.

  • As her spiritual adviser I'd tell her Marriage is purely a legal action. There's no spiritual reason for it.
