THE WEDDING OF JOHN F. KENNEDY AND JACQUELINE BOUVIER, SEPTEMBER 12, 1953

1956 classic Kennedy style/....before affairs and deceit. How hard to maintain an apparent "perfect" marriage in the press & in front of the public, when you KNOW your husband is attracted to many women and has been unfaithful.
