Newly Discovered Amelia Earhart Letter Shows Her Wild Side

West Lafayette, IN -- A recently-unearthed letter from Amelia Earhart to her husband shows the famed flyer was a fan of open marriages.

In the letter, written before the two were married, Earhart outlines the terms she wants for their marriage.

She writes: "I want you to understand I shall not hold you to any midaevil [sic] code of faithfulness to me nor shall I consider myself bound to you similarly."

Earhart also talks about avoiding any hard feelings, "should you or I become interested deeply (or in passing) in anyone else."

The prenuptial agreement is one of several Earhart documents going on display March 10 at Purdue University in Indiana, where the pilot once worked as a career counselor for women.

Curator Craig Martin feels it's a really forward-thinking document that gives insight into Earhart's feminism and independence.
