There is no one comparable to Joe and Marilyn today, not even close. They didn’t necessarily need each other to guarantee their everlasting fame, but since they were indeed united they have entered the realms of myth. Reuters

The U.S. does not have royalty – but it has produced celebrities who have become legendary icons whose fame and celebrity can sometimes surpass the impact of monarchs.

And when two such icons unite in marriage, it is bigger than any royal wedding imaginable.

Today would have been the 85th birthday of movie starlet, Marilyn Monroe, who is widely regarded as the greatest sex symbol that Hollywood ever produced.

When she married Joe DiMaggio, the greatest athlete of his era, it was like the stars had realigned, the waters parted and the sea had changed.

The most beautiful, glamorous woman from the entertainment industry married the most handsome, elegant and charismatic athlete – it was an incredible and magical pairing.
