In 1952, Marilyn’s love life was also taking off. Marilyn had affairs with several people including baseball legend Joe DiMaggio and writer Bob Slatzer. The two competed for Marilyn’s affections during the entire year and for a brief period Slatzer won Marilyn’s affections.
On October 4, 1952, Marilyn and Bob spent the evening drinking champagne and talking before they decided to take a drive to Mexico’s Rosarita Beach. According to Donald Wolfe, the two suddenly decided to get married after having drinks at the Foreign Club in Tijuana. Coincidentally, Bob and Marilyn ran into an old acquaintance named Kid Chissell who agreed to be a witness at their wedding.
The newly engaged couple found a lawyer who was willing to perform the ceremony. According to Chissell, Marilyn went to pray at a local Mexican church before the marriage ceremony began. When the couple arrived at the lawyer’s office they filled out the necessary forms and were duly married.
But, Marilyn changed her mind and decided she really didn’t want to be married to Bob Slatzer, so the two traveled back to Mexico and bribed the lawyer who married them to destroy the marriage certificate that had not yet been processed. The lawyer eventually agreed to destroy the only tangible evidence proving Marilyn and Bob were ever married. All in all, the marriage survived only three days.
In 1953, Marilyn returned back to work with her full vigor, winning acclaim and praise from critics for her accomplishments in Monkey Business with Cary Grant, Gentlemen Prefer Blondes with Jane Russell, and How to Marry a Millionaire with Betty Grable and Lauren Bacall. In June of that year, she and co-star Jane Russell received the honor of embedding their prints on the walk of fame in front of Grauman’s Chinese Theater.

1954 ushered in a series of abrupt changes in Marilyn’s life and not necessarily for the better. After failing to appear for the shooting of The Girl in the Pink Tights, a movie that she believed was an unsuitable vehicle for her career, Marilyn was suspended from the studio. But during that time movie making was not her main priority.
After courting Marilyn for almost a year, Yankees baseball legend Joe DiMaggio wanted to marry her. They were married less than two weeks after her suspension from the studio in San Francisco, California, on January 14, 1954. It was a simple wedding with very few people in attendance. Marilyn and Joe traveled to Japan for their honeymoon, where they remained for 10 days.
Almost immediately, the marriage showed signs of distress. Allegedly, Joe was fanatically jealous of Marilyn and not just of men but of women as well. In fact, many of Marilyn’s friends found Joe to be highly irritated and angered over any signs of attention Marilyn received.
Near the end of the honeymoon in Japan, Marilyn accepted a request to go on tour to perform for troops stationed in Korea. With Joe’s staunch disapproval she went ahead and entertained more than 13,000 soldiers at one army base alone. While on tour, Marilyn nursed a broken thumb supposedly a result of Joe’s anger at her decision to perform for the troops. It would not be the last incidence of physical abuse.
The relationship from the beginning was often overshadowed with Joe’s jealousy. According to an earlier interview, Marilyn stated that jealousy was, “like salt on steak, all you need is a little bit of it.” She got more than she bargained for. Friends and colleagues of Marilyn said that Joe was overtly domineering, highly critical and violent to Marilyn throughout the entirety of the relationship. Regardless, they continued to claim that they still loved each other.
That same year, Marilyn and 20th Century Fox Studios settled their dispute and Marilyn was back at work, much to Joe’s dismay. She signed a contract to star in the movies There’s No Business Like Show Business and The Seven Year Itch, which contained the famous scene in which she stood on top of a sidewalk grate with her skirt blowing up. Apparently, Joe was enraged by the spectacle, and rumor has it that he beat her that evening in their hotel room for being an embarrassment to him.
