Marilyn Monroe (Norma Jean) was born on June 1, 1926. She has been married 3 times. She met her first husband — a sailor named James Dougherty, when she was only 16 years old. They began an affair. When the guy received a job transfer, 16-year-old Norma wanted to leave with him. Alas, the underage girl could not leave the state, and then she and James decided to get married.
After the wedding, Norma dropped out of school and settled at home with her new husband. According to Monroe herself, her first marriage was rather dull — they hardly spoke to her husband.
A year after the wedding, Norma got a job at an aircraft factory, where she soon took part in professional photography. The girl gained attention by many people after which they offered a job as a model.
Norma left her job at the factory, and in 1945 became famous, after which she took the pseudonym Marilyn Monroe. With her first husband, who did not accept her new profession, the bright blonde broke up soon. Imagine how he then regreted!
