John Kennedy was known as a serial cheater. While John F. Kennedy was still a senator, Jacqueline paid a surprise visit to his office and caught him receiving oral sex at his desk from a temp. She had to be offered over $1 million by John’s father to stay in the marriage, because Jacqueline leaving would ruin John’s presidential hopes.

After one particularly ugly fight between Jacqueline and John Kennedy over his infidelities, he had her briefly sent to a psychiatric clinic in Massachusetts. There she received electroshock therapy, which she called “the nightmare ride of my life,” according to one recent biography.
