Marilyn Monroe's first husband, a Los Angles detective by the name of James Dougherty, has passed away at the age of 84. The couple married in 1942 when Marilyn (then Norma Jean) was sixteen, and divorced four years later. During their brief time together James worked as a merchant marine while Norma Jean began to pursue a career in Hollywood that would eventually lead her to stardom and a brand new namesake.
