Kelly Rowland, "X Factor" judge and former Destiny's Child singer, has gotten engaged. She plans to marry her boyfriend and manager, Tim Witherspoon.

According to Us Weekly, Rowland has a new ring and is sharing the good news with friends and family. "She has been showing [the ring] off to friends and family and is very happy," a source explained.

But love and marriage can be rather a tough thing for those who judge "The X Factor." A quicklook at the rest of the judges to come through the show in its short run makes that very clear:

  • Simon Cowell -- The former confirmed bachelor is engaged to Lauren Silverman after he got the married woman pregnant.
  • Paula Abdul - Two previous marriages (one to Emilio Estevez) and a long-term relationship down, Abdul is still looking to be someone's girl.
  • Cheryl Cole - She may have taken husband Ashley Cole's name, but the marriage lasted less than three years.
  • Nicole Scherzinger - The former Pussycat Dolls singer has had a bunch of long-term relationships, none of which are happening now.
  • Demi Lovato - She's still kind of young for real heartache, but Lovato did date Joe Jonas for awhile.
  • Britney Spears - Forget about the too-young thing. Spears has been married twice -- to Jason Alexander for less than three days and to Kevin Federline for less than three years.
  • Paulina Rubio - Her marriage lasted almost five years and produced a son, but Rubio and ex Nicolas Vallejo Najero reportedly don't talk anymore.
  • L.A. Reid - Actually, it looks like Reid has done well in the relationship department. Let's hope Rowland follows this lead!

"The X Factor" airs Wednesdays and Thursdays at 8 p.m. on FOX.
