Que sera sera except in the case of marriage. Presented is a marriage financial agreement signed by Doris Day and her third husband Marty Melcher (d.1968). This three page document outlines the handling of finances and property between Day her then husband/manager Melcher. Appearing on the third page, both signatures radiate (“9-10”) quality. Though Day’s marriage to Melcher occurred in April of 1953, this agreement was signed and notarized on 5/3/51 with a provision in the first paragraph stating the agreement was effective as of “the day of our marriage”. Two County of Los Angeles Notary Public seals are affixed with signatures to the third page. Overall this typewritten document is fully legible and displays in excellent condition with age-appropriate wear. No authentication due to time/costs.
