Madonna Revealed She Doesn’t Believe in Perfect Soulmate and Prefers Men Several Decades Younger

3 months ago

Age differences in celebrity relationships are nothing new or unusual. It’s quite common for famous people to be in relationships with partners who have a significant age gap. This phenomenon extends to iconic stars like Madonna, who is no stranger to being in relationships with partners of varying ages.

Madonna thinks her two marriages were a big mistake

The singer has been married twice in her life. With her first husband, Sean Penn, they lived together for four years and separated in 1989. After the divorce, Penn and Madonna managed to keep their friendship and still support each other to this day. The former husband and wife even admitted on several occasions that their love for each other has not disappeared over the years.

Madonna’s second marriage, to director Guy Ritchie, lasted eight years. The singer later said that this was the last time she dared to walk down the aisle and she would never take this step again.


Madonna noted that while married, she sometimes felt like a prisoner. She couldn’t just be herself, always having to put on a persona. Now the singer believes that no amount of love can save a relationship if the partners don’t accept each other and are uncomfortable together. The only thing she has no regrets about is her children. She is truly proud of all six of her offspring and considers them the biggest achievement in her life.

And even though Madonna doesn’t plan to ever get married again, she sometimes misses some of the aspects of family life. Married people don’t have to make decisions alone and can always feel part of a small, closed circle of people.

She’s not sure that a soul mate is the ideal partner for a relationship

Although Madonna considers love to be one of the most important things in her life, she doesn’t believe in the existence of a perfect soulmate, because only someone you’re truly close to can do lasting damage to you. They’re the ones who know which buttons to push in order to get what they want and make their partner suffer.

The singer never set out to choose partners younger than herself

Since her breakup with Guy Ritchie, Madonna has favored younger partners. From 2019 to 2022, she was in a relationship with professional dancer Ahlamalik Williams, who was 36 years younger than her. Their romance caused a lot of controversy, although Williams’ father didn’t understand why people were making such a fuss about his son’s love life. After all, love has no age limits.

The singer herself jokingly notes that she has managed to build a very unusual family. “I have lovers who are three decades younger than me. This makes people very uncomfortable. I feel like everything I do makes people feel really uncomfortable,” says Madonna.

Madonna believes that age shouldn’t influence a woman’s decisions

Madonna has recently officially confirmed her relationship with 29-year-old boxer Josh Popper. The pair have posted photos of them together on social media, and they appear to be having fun. The singer cares little about other people’s opinions when it comes to her personal life. Madonna is not going to change anything and will continue to date the people she likes and not the men who are supposedly age-appropriate for her.

“I don’t believe there’s a certain age where you can’t say and feel and be who you want to be,” says Madonna. She feels she has learned to express her thoughts and emotions better over the years. She has dealt with all the heartbreak and sorrows of her personal life through music. That’s why the singer intends to work for as long as she can.

Just like in everyday life, celebrities also find connections with people who may be older or younger than them. What matters most in any relationship, celebrity or not, is the mutual understanding, respect, and love between the partners. Age is just a number, and as long as the individuals involved are happy and supportive of each other, the age difference shouldn’t be a big deal. After all, love knows no age boundaries, and it’s a personal choice whom one chooses to be with.
