After 12 increasingly dreary years capped by a wrenching divorce, I couldn't imagine why women in my situation (childless divorcées) complained about the prospect of reentering single life. Wasn't finally having some laughs, romance, and excitement the way to take the "crisis" out of "midlife"?
However, the marriage was short lived as the duo split in May 2016.
Madonna has been open about her affinity towards younger men.
Actor Johnny Depp got engaged to actress Amber Heard in March 2014.
