Marilyn Monroe, single again, waves to fans

Oct. 27, 1954: Marilyn Monroe waves to fans as she leaves a Santa Monica courthouse after being granted a divorce from Joe DiMaggio.

On Jan. 14, 1954, Marilyn Monroe and retired baseball star Joe DiMaggio were married in San Francisco. By October, the marriage was over.

On Oct. 27, 1954, after a short 10-minute courtroom hearing, Monroe was granted a divorce from DiMaggio.

This photo by Los Angeles Mirror-News staff photographer George Lacks was not published until now. It’s been added to the From the Archives photo gallery Marilyn Monroe and Joe DiMaggio divorce.

The Mirror-News stopped publishing in 1962.

    You can't "be single again." Whether you're Marilyn Monroe or the Pope, you're only single ONCE. After that, you're separated, divorced, or widowed. You can re-marrry, and you can divorce again, but you'll never, never be single again. Single means that the person has never married even once. The photo above of Marilyn means to say, "Divorced again and now available."
