Ian McKellen speculates that studio pressure to marry may also have been a factor.
That doesn't surprise me either. Check out the career of William Haines sometime. I only ever saw him in one movie—
(1928) with Marion Davies—and he's so good and I looked forward to seeing so much more of him, especially in the sound era, and if Hollywood hadn't been so homophobic, that's what I'd have done.
I was rather charmed to find that McKellen visited Manners, not long before the latter's death, while preparing for
