On this day

Marilyn weds Joe DiMaggio

On January 14, 1954, the dream couple, actress and model Marilyn Monroe and baseball star Joe DiMaggio were married at San Francisco City Hall. As earlier Monroe had shared their wedding plans with somebody at her film studio, the city hall was invaded by the press. Sadly, the marriage of the celebrated stars was a rocky one and they were divorced even the same year in October as DiMaggio could not cope with the effect his sexy wife had on people. When Marilyn died of drug overdose at 36 DiMaggio organized her ex-wife’s funeral, sending roses to her grave until he passed away in 1999.
