A letter penned by 16-year-old newly married Marilyn Monroe describing her early life as a desperate housewife has surfaced after 69 years, reports the Daily Mail.

Signed Norma and written in pencil, in the eight-pages long letter, the actor describes her married life with then 21-year-old James Dougherty to her mother in the letter, saying: “He really keeps me busy cleaning the house and fixing meals, everybody told me that it is quite a responsibility being a housewife, and boy, I’m finding it out.”
