by Elzaan Van der merwe

Kimberly Stewart

Kimberly is a famous actor that has starred in numerous movies, television shows, and even reality TV and is the daughter of Rod and Alana Stewart. Her parents have been happily married for years, but Kimberly has her own agenda. Even though she got engaged to MTV's Laguna Beach star Talan Torriero after only dating for one month she still didn't get married. She also shares a child with Benicio del Toro, but there is still no ring on her finger. Only time will tell if she will follow in her parent's footsteps.

Coco Chanel

The most iconic fashion designer that the world has seen has one saying she always lived by, "A girl should be two things: who and what she wants." Chanel has appeared in the public with a few good-looking men on her arm but always kept the relationships casual. She also said that she wants to have the same effect on men as a bird would. Because of that and her strong beliefs she never settled down.

Oprah Winfrey

Oprah is seen as one of the most successful women in television and she worked hard to build her empire. Some speculation has been going around that Oprah doesn't want to get married because she is scared about the financial consequences of a messy divorce. But it is safe to say that she is more than happy in her longtime relationship with Stedman Graham. The couple has been dating for a shocking 30 years, and never got married and probably never will. There is a perfect saying from Dr. Phil that sums this up, "If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it!"

Jacqueline Bisset

Even though she has seriously dated a few boyfriends for long periods over the years, she never decided to get married. One of Jacqueline's relationships lasted a whopping 14 years and two other relationships lasted seven years.

Anna Kournikova

The one and only blonde bombshell and tennis star have been in a number of high profile relationships, but still, there is no ring.

After being engaged to NFL star Pavel Bure, she has been in a rather serious relationship with Enrique Iglesias. We are waiting for that ring!

Anita Hill

Anita became famous under the most unusual circumstance. For those of you who don't know she became famous when she testified against Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas in court. Ever since then she has been secretive about her love life, although we know she has been dating her boyfriend for a while now. She is not against getting married, but she probably just isn't "there" yet.

Greta Garbo

In Greta's case the saying, "actions mean more than words" definitely comes to mind! After she stated in numerous interviews that she will marry a man if he is the right one for her, her actions told a different story. The story goes like this, she was engaged to actor Jack Gilbert, they planned their wedding together and when the big day finally arrived she became the runaway bride and left him at the altar. Apparently, he wasn't the right man for her.

Diane Keaton

Although Diane has played numerous married roles in movies and has dated big time film stars like Keanu Reeves, Al Pacino and Warren Beatty she is still unmarried.

Condoleeza Rice

Condoleeze is now known as one of the most powerful women in American history as she climbed the ladder of the American political system until she was appointed Secretary of State.

They, however, split up in 2017, sad but true!

Shonda Rhimes

Shonda may not be recognized by her face, but fans of Grey's Anatomy and Scandal will definitely recognize her name as the producer of these hit tv shows. Because she has such a busy schedule and life it may be difficult for her to find the right man to marry and settle down with.

Guess, we will have to wait and see.

Kylie Minogue

Kylie is the multi-talented star that we all strive to be. From an actress to a model, she can do it all and the gift just keeps on giving in her case. She has been engaged to Joshua Sasse and has enjoyed and been in a couple of serious relationships, but none that has tied her down just yet.

Harper Lee

We all know the famous novel To Kill A Mockingbird that was written by the famous novelist Harper Lee. Although she was a celebrity she lived a solitary life and only dated a couple of times.

Jane Austen

The world's most famous novelist who wrote Pride and Prejudice, lived like any other author, in solitary.

Jorja Fox

Jorja has a great career since she starred in hit tv shows like CSI and The West Wing. But she is like many other famous actors, who love to keep their love lives under wraps.

Queen Elizabeth I

Way back when Queen Elizabeth I was in power she was also known by the name of "The Virgin Queen," as she never got married.

You see back then the only way she could marry someone is if she married a leader from another country.

As if she isn't intimidating or a force to be reckoned with she has also been named the ninth most powerful woman by Forbes. Unfortunately, we don't know why she chose to not settle down, but let me tell you this it's going to take one hell of a man to sweep her off her feet.

Mary-Louise Parker

Mary is another well known and loved actress that has never walked down the aisle. We guess you can own it up to the terrible heartbreak she had when Billy Crudup broke up with her just before their child's birth so that he could be with Claire Danes. Since then she has learned how to take care of herself and that has led her to be the fine actress that she is now.

Goldie Hawn

Goldie is in a sense in the same position as our beloved Oprah. They both never got married, but they have been in wonderful lasting relationships of over 30 years with their partner.

As she feels like getting married is just a meaningless relationship marker.

Susan B. Anthony

She spent most of her life fighting for the rights of women in the most difficult time when it was seen that a woman is her husband's property. "When I was young if a girl married poor, she became a housekeeper and a drudge," Susan said. "If she married wealth, she became a pet and a doll."
