If there has ever been a 53-year-old woman who can get away with "thinking over" a marriage proposal from her 24-year-old boy toy, it's Madonna.

 

Rumor has it, Madge's boyfriend, dancer Brahim Zaibat, popped the question a few weeks ago at a Kabbalah Centre in New York -- an appropriate venue for Madonna who has been a faithful follower of Kabbalah for years.

 

The couple has been dating for two years, but Madonna, who has been married twice already, is reportedly stalling her decision.

 

"Brahim asked Madonna to marry him at the center a few weeks ago, but Madonna hasn't given him an answer yet. She doesn't want to rush into anything," a source told the Daily Mail.

 

Madonna married actor Sean Penn in 1985, but divorced him two years later. She was married to director Guy Ritchie for eight years until the pair split in 2008. The Queen of Pop has been quoted saying she'd rather "get run over by a train" than tie the knot again.

 

Yes, getting run over by a train seems far better than marrying a 24-year-old hottie who completely adores you!

We're waiting for her answer in as much anticipation as Brahim Zaibat, but friends of the singer say her paranoia of ending up alone might be enough to get her to agree to a third marriage.

"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," the source added.

Not a bad way to spend your post-50 life. Go for it, Madge!
