Former president John F. Kennedy and his wife, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, have been dead for decades, but many people are still fascinated by their story.

The couple met at a dinner party in 1952, back when J.F.K. was a congressman, and Jackie, a socialite, went by her maiden name, Bouvier. The couple, who had a lot in common, including wealth and religious beliefs, only dated for a year before tying the knot on September 12, 1953.


For a while, the couple lived in bliss, and welcomed four children, but over time, rumors about the 35th president's womanizing ways began to run amok (he allegedly had an affair with multiple women, including Marilyn Monroe), and Jackie threatened to leave him.

According to reports, J.F.K.'s father, Joe, offered Jackie one million dollars so she would stay married to his son. But as per a new book, "Jackie, Janet and Lee" by J. Randy Taraborrelli, that wasn't the only time that money influenced Jackie's decisions.


Taraborrelli's book reveals new details about how the former first lady and her sister, Lee Radziwill, were strongly influenced by their mother, Janet Auchincloss, who loved money and power. She was a driving force behind every decision the sisters made, and this shaped the women they became later in life.
