In theory, Marilyn Monroe and Joe DiMaggio were perfect for each other.
Marilyn was the young, talented, incredibly sexy, rising Hollywood star, and Joe was quite possibly the New York Yankees’ greatest player of all time. On paper, they were the ideal American superstar match.
It’s well-known, though, that this was not quite the case in reality.
The nine-month marriage was full of unhappiness, tears, and general strife. However, once they divorced, their relationship was far from over, with Joe still trying to win her back.
We all know what it means to love someone who isn’t right for us. It seems Marilyn was deeply in love with Joe, even though her feelings most likely stemmed from her own tumultuous past and need for a figure like him in her life. Joe certainly had very, very strong feelings for Marilyn as well, perhaps too strong.
These 10 facts about their rollercoaster relationship certainly are fascinating!
