I just bought a 1x10" Marshall combo guitar amp, and I've read in articles that many guitarists sit on their amps.
Is it okay to sit on it? Is there any chance of breaking it as a result?

Its perfectly okay to sit on your amp, as long as your not hitting your knobs or damaging your lead coming out of it, but otherwise its fine! I sit on mine all the time for busking. I have a Roland bass micro cube RX and turn it on its side so that there is a bigger surface and i dont hit any knobs or leads.
I would generally say that there is no risk to your amp by sitting on it. This case could be a little different since you are using a relatively small amp but I still doubt that you would be able to break it unless you are significantly heavier than the average person. I also imagine that you would be pretty close to the ground, which I would find uncomfortable.
