    Marilyn Monroe spent most of her childhood in and out of foster homes because her mother was hospitalized due to paranoid schizophrenia. By the early 1940s, Monroe was placed under the care of Grace Goddard, a friend of her mother. However, Grace and her husband were moving to West Virginia, so Monroe was to be placed in another foster home, or she could marry and stay there. Marilyn chose the latter. Goddard arranged Monroe’s marriage to the neighborhood man, James Dougherty. She was 16 at that time, while James was 21. World War II was ongoing, and Dougherty applied for the navy and was stationed overseas. Feeling abandonment and loneliness, Marilyn was spotted by a photographer at her factory job. Her modeling career took off with her new ‘bombshell‘ look. While signing the contract with 20th Century Fox, they asked her for one condition: she had to be unmarried. She divorced Dougherty in 1946.

DiMaggio wanted a stay-at-home wife, but Monroe, who was at the height of her career, didn’t want to de-prioritize her work. Talking to People, Monroe shared that during the filming of her famous white blown skirt scene for ‘The Seven Year Itch,‘ DiMaggio said, “exposing my legs and thighs, even my crotch — that was the last straw.” That scene was apparently the breaking point between the pair. The couple, however, stayed friends till Monroe’s unfortunate death. It was reported by The New York Times that the baseball player kept sending roses to her grave three times a week for over two decades.
