When it comes to marriage, Madonna admits that she misses it — but only "certain things."

The 53-year-old star tells ABC News she misses "being a part of a family unit" and "not having to make all the decision on my own."

“I don’t want to live my life on my own,” Madonna explained. “I love being a mother. My children fill me up in many ways, and inspire me in many ways, but I need a partner in my life, and I think most people feel that way. I’ve never really lived a conventional life, so I think it’s quite foolish for me or anyone else to start thinking that I am going to start making conventional choices.”

And there has been a trend to the partners Madonna has had in her life recently: They are all younger than her!

Madonna is currently dating 24-year-old French dancer Brahim Zaibat, but she says she didn't pick him for his age.

“I didn’t choose to, you know, I didn’t, like, write down on a piece of paper, 'I’m now going to have a relationship with a younger man,'” she said. “That’s just what happened. You see, that’s the romantic in me. I just met someone that I cared for, and this happened to be his age.”
