January 14, 1954

On January 14, 1954, celebrity couple, Marilyn Monroe and Joe DiMaggio were married. Unfortunately the marriage only lasted nine months as Joe was a reserved man who wanted his wife to be more of an actress and less of a sexy bombshell and Marilyn was very jealous of Joe’s celebrity in the world. It was the first time since she became famous that the person she was with was fawned over more than her. And Joe’s idea of an ideal wife was completely destroyed by Marilyn’s actual personality and behavior. Their early divorce probably saved their friendship.
