Marilyn had a very hard, troubled childhood. Her mother was a widow and mentally ill, and abandoned her to live through a series of foster homes. She was abused severely in her early childhood and worked for a nickel a month at age 9. She dropped out of school at age 15. When she was 16, she ended up marrying to get out of staying at an orphanage. So she didn't have the best background to reflect on. INTRO TO MARILYN
