The place and time of the wedding of Monroe and DiMaggio were kept a secret from the audience for a long time, but the public still found out about it, so that 500 people jammed the corridors of the court.
The wedding between actress Marilyn Monroe and famous athlete Joe DiMaggio took place on this day. It was a civil wedding in the City Hall premises. The place and time of the wedding were kept a secret from the audience for a long time, but the public still found out about it, so that 500 people jammed the corridors of the court.
The newlyweds spent their honeymoon in Japan, where an incident occurred. Namely, it was the time of the Korean War, and Marilyn was invited to perform in front of the U.S. troops in Korea. Against DiMaggio’s will, she responded and went from Japan to Korea, where she performed in 10 concerts in front of an audience of about 100,000 soldiers. Since then, their marriage headed in the wrong direction. The next conflict occurred when Marilyn was filming the famous scene where the wind lifts her dress. DiMaggio was furious, so they had a loud argument after that shooting. They divorced on Marilyn’s request, only 274 days after the wedding.
