Madonna can't decide about marrying 24-year-old boyfriend




There's no telling if Madonna's going to get married again, but word is she's considering a proposal by her 24-year-old boyfriend, Brahim Zaibat. Just think, it would be nice to have someone young visit you in the nursing home, Madge.

The U.K.'s Daily Mail says the dancer popped the question to the 53-year-old at a Kabbalah center in New York three weeks ago, but the queen of pop needs some time to think about it. "Madonna hasn't given him an answer yet. She doesn't want to rush into anything," a source told the paper. "She is very happy with Brahim, although her friends are not sure she is ready for marriage again. That said, Madonna has a real fear of being on her own. It's a major issue for her, and she loves having a man in her life who is young and makes her feel young."

And all it would cost her is half her money if they divorce, and all of it if she dies. That seems like a fair trade, right? Now the only obstacles are the 29-year age difference, her emotional scarring from marriages to Sean Penn and Guy Ritchie and Brahim's mother, who is Muslim and doesn't like all this Kabbalah business her son is into. Who could have seen that conflict arising?
