“When I went back to see her, I tried to talk her out of it.
She wanted me to be there -- she just wanted us to keep on and not be married for the contract.
Norma Jean, who had lived in a succession of foster homes, was then living with Goddard and her husband.“They wanted to move back to [West] Virginia, and they couldn’t take Norma Jean,” Dougherty said in the 1990 interview.
“She would have gone back to an orphanage or another foster home, so her foster mother suggested I marry her.“I thought she was awful young, but I took her to a dance.
He said she felt “like she had to compete with Norma Jean, even though she was far ahead because she gave me three beautiful children.”During his second marriage, he said, “I destroyed all my letters from Norma Jean -- hundreds of them.
She was a pretty mature girl and physically she was mature, of course.
We talked and we got on pretty good.” On June 19, 1942 -- after dating only a few months and just 18 days after Norma Jean’s 16th birthday -- they were married.
James Dougherty, a retired Los Angeles police detective who earned a niche in Hollywood history when he married a pretty teenager named Norma Jean Baker in the early 1940s, years before she became the iconic sex symbol Marilyn Monroe, has died. Dougherty, the first of Monroe’s three husbands, died Monday of complications of leukemia in San Rafael, Calif., his family said.
Over the decades, Dougherty was repeatedly asked -- by reporters, biographers and the curious -- about his four-year marriage to the legendary star.“I never knew Marilyn Monroe, and I don’t claim to have any insights to her to this day,” he told United Press International in 1990.
