Marilyn fell in love at first sight with Arthur Miller, who was already married then. She thought he was the most charming man alive, and he was captivated once he met her. He said he couldn’t live without her and married Monroe just two days after divorcing his previous wife.
After five years of marriage, Monroe and Miller had enough and divorced in 1961. At the time, it was thought that this marriage was going to last. However, it ended just five years after tieing the knot and becoming one of Monroe’s most significant relationships (and she had a few).
Mick Jagger and Marianne Faithfull
Marianne Faithfull came from a family of intelligent professors and European noblemen. She was considered upper class and was expected to mix with her kind. Noted for her distinctive voice, the beautiful singer and songwriter met Andrew Loog, who was The Rolling Stones' manager, and the route to Jagger was paved.
Jagger and Faithfull were together for a little over three years, and it is thought that she was involved not only with Mick but with a few other Stones. Her popularity was further enhanced by her film roles, but eventually, their very public relationship reached an inevitable breaking point, and they broke up.
Jane Fonda and Roger Vadim
Jane Fonda and Roger Vadim were married in 1965. She was a rising movie star, and he was one of the more vibrant filmmakers to emerge from the French cinema scene of the 1960s. He was known for having many lovers before and after marrying Fonda. Amongst those women were Catherine Deneuve and Brigitte Bardot.
They first became an item in 1963 and married two years later in 1965. At the time, there were rumors going around about their relationship being unhealthy at times. However, it remained one of the most iconic ones of that era. In 1973, seven years after tieing the knot, the two went their separate ways.
Paul McCartney and Linda Eastman
Although Paul McCartney was a big thing, his wedding was everything but. In the glorious 1960s, McCartney married the love of his life, Linda Eastman, in a small and private venue. There is no need to introduce Mccartney, being the number two of the famous four. Linda was an American musician and photographer — a talented star of her own accord.
Linda Eastman had a daughter, Heather, from a previous relationship, who McCartney adopted when the two married. McCartney and Eastman were married for 29 years and together, they had three more children. He said that they were almost never apart for more than one week, except for one week back in 1980.
Sharon Tate and Roman Polanski
Sharon Tate landed her first big role in 1965 while shooting "Eye of the Devil." That's where she met Roman Polanski, a French-Polish film director who would become one of the most profound and honorable film actors and directors of the 20th century. Polanski would later win an Oscar for Best Director for the film "The Pianist" in 2002.
Their relationship only lasted for one year; however, it would end in a tragic way when Sharon Tate lost her life unexpectedly, leaving the greater public, along with Polanski, shocked and devastated. What started off as a promising love story in Hollywood saw its end in such a horrific way.
