Mon­roe ex­pected JFK to marry her, author says

China Daily (Hong Kong) - - SUNDAY PEOPLE -

Mar­i­lyn Mon­roe, who no­to­ri­ously had an af­fair with John F. Kennedy, ap­par­ently be­lieved she was go­ing to marry the pres­i­dent, even phon­ing the White House to tell his wife. The story, re­ported in a new book out last week by jour­nal­ist Christopher An­der­sen, as­serts that Jackie Kennedy even told Mon­roe that the screen siren was wel­come to take over her role as first lady. The in­ci­dent is just one layer of the com­plex mar­riage in the year be­fore the pres­i­dent was as­sas­si­nated, ac­cord­ing to the new ac­count.
