The course of true love never did run smooth, particularly if one is a notorious mass murderer serving a life sentence.

Charles Manson, 80, and his 27-year-old fan, Afton Elaine Burton, have yet to wed despite time running out on their marriage license, said Terry Thornton, a spokeswoman with the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation.

The couple’s license, drafted in November, expires Thursday. Inmate weddings take place on weekends, during visiting hours.
