Pop diva Britney Spears is ready to walk down the aisle for the third time, as she has agreed to marry her longtime boyfriend and former agent Jason Trawick.

Trawick, who has been in a relationship with the 30-year-old singer since May 2010, proposed to her recently.

Spears was previously married to backup dancer Kevin Federline for two years before the marriage ended in divorce. The singer's first marriage was with childhood friend Jason Allen Alexander that was annulled 55 hours later.

Troubled actor Charlie Sheen is another serial offender. He's been married thrice and has five kids.

The former Two And A Half Men star's first marriage with Donna Peele lasted a year, after which he married actress and former fashion model Denise Richards in 2002.

When that ended on a rather acromonious note -- Richards filed for divorce citing Sheen's drug abuse and emotional strain as reasons -- Sheen married actress and real estate agent Brooke Mueller in 2008.

The couple split this year.
