To be fair her husband's constant wanderings probably were the last straw.

It wasn't easy being married to a "Kennedy" and JFK's big family did not always make Jackie Bouvier welcome, intentionally or otherwise.

The women in particular couldn't understand just what Jackie's "problem" was when it came to breeding. The Kennedy women produced (and produced, and produced) seemingly each time their husband's but looked at them without problems. Jackie Kennedy OTHO had miscarriages and so forth.

The Kennedy family was just also something Jackie was not used to at all. Anyone who grew up in or knows those huge Irish Catholic families can be hard for an outsider to figure out. At weekend or holiday get together events Jackie often didn't fit in. Where the Kennedys both boys and girls, men and women would play games of touch tackle, that wasn't exactly up JB's street.

Like a cultured princess brought to marry a king in order to give him and his family some polish, Kennedy Sr. saw the beautiful, aristocratic, French Catholic Jackie Bouvier as just what was need to put his son over, and it did work.

If JFK's relic had married a member of the British RF or some man of equal status that was Northern European no one would have said "boo". For all his wealth Onasis might have been Don Corleone for all most Americans cared. The man was seen as oily at best and criminal at worst, neither was befitting to get his mitts on "American Royalty", the former first lady.

She wasn't too popular when she married Onassis but that went away later on when people understood why. She had to get away and find a safe place for her children and herself.

I'm pretty sure Onassis was long gone before she took up with Maurice Tempelsman and there is nothing wrong with what she did. Seems like a monogamous relationship even though they never married.
I'm not sure what it is about the fact that Mr. Tempelsman was married that's so hard to grasp.Yes, there is something wrong with what she did.

What are you so upset about? I just looked it up and it's true, he never obtained a divorce. He was separately from his wife. So Jackie wasn't perfect.
