Amelia Earhart Wrote Prenuptial Letter to Fiancé

Amelia EarhartAmelia Earhart was progressive, fearless, and not concerned with conforming to societal expectations. Now, a copy of her pre-nuptial letter written over 80 years ago to George Putman is shocking many. She did not hold back as she expressed her expectations for their marriage, including a request that he would let her go if they were not happy together after a year.
