Married John F. Kennedy in 1953, Jackie Kennedy, born Jacqueline Lee Bouvier, already knew what to think about the fickle behavior of her lover . For proof, one year before their marriage, she had already explained to Joseph Leonard priest she was afraid of becoming a woman deceived. Written correspondence with the clergyman maintained from 1950 to 1964 sold at auction in 2014 and which were exhumed astonishing confessions.
” He’s like my father, in a way – he loves the quest, but is annoyed by conquest. Once married, he needs proof that it is still attractive. So he flirts with other women and you will. I understand why it almost killed mom ” , she wrote then.

Indeed, already in 1953, the year of his marriage to JFK, the girl then aged 23 already reported to Father Joseph Leonard of his lost illusions : ” Maybe I’m blinded. I saw myself in a world full of sequins, crowned heads and men in destiny, not as a woman unhappy home. The world may seem glamorous from the outside. But from the inside, you’re alone. It can turn into hell. “
