Cupid's Pulse Article: Rep Denies Rumor that Marilyn Manson Is EngagedCupid's Pulse Article: Rep Denies Rumor that Marilyn Manson Is Engaged

News recently leaked that Marilyn Manson is engaged to aspiring actress Seraphim Ward, and no one was more surprised to find out than the rocker himself.  According to, Ward’s rep told E! News that the two were planning to tie the knot, but Manson’s rep denies all claims and says that Manson has never met Ward.  If this was Ward’s attempt at a publicity stunt, it’s worked, but she seems to be carrying on with the story.  Ward tweeted a photo of her engagement ring, which her rep claimed was a family heirloom that holds special meaning for both parties.  She even continued to tweet about her excitement after Manson denied knowing her at all.

What are some warning signs that you should not marry your partner?

Cupid’s Advice: 

Of course you shouldn’t marry someone if you don’t know them or they’re apparently insane!  Even though Manson’s case is extremely unlikely, Cupid has some real signs that you and your partner aren’t ready to walk down the aisle:

1. Time: This can go both ways.  If you’ve only been together a short amount of time, make sure you’re not jumping into anything you’re not ready for, because there’s a lot to learn about someone you’re going to spend the rest of your life with.  If you’ve been dating or engaged to someone for too long, there might be a reason you haven’t taken that step forward or you’re avoiding the commitment.

2. Gut feeling: When you know, you know.  If you have a feeling that something’s not right or you feel hesitant in any way, it’s important that you trust your instincts.

3. Peer pressure: Sometimes the people around you feel like they know what’s best for you, and although that may be true some of the time, it’s not true all of the time.  There’s a lot that goes on in a relationship behind closed doors, so there’s an aspect that outsiders rarely see.  Don’t let people push you into a marriage you don’t want.
