I have marked this article disputed for accuracy. I was not part of the previous discussion; but I have read a couple of Jung biographies as well as his autobiography, and at least half of his books. I question the bald assertion that Jung married Emma for her money, and the suggestion that, as talented, scholarly and well-respected as he was, he needed that money. I have not read the single cited work by Deirdre Bair.

Also, the closing quote is not attributed to either Carl or Emma, and because it is indelicate, a direct reference to it would be highly appropriate. Twang 09:47, 4 January 2006 (UTC)

If there was a "bald assertion" that Jung married Emma for her money, it's not there now. That Freud so chose to interpret the union and chose to predict its doom says more about Freud than Jung. This is also a pretty slim thread from which to dangle an "accuracy dispute". If no one stops by the talk page to show why there should be such a warning, I'll remove it in a few days. The closing quotation is Emma Jung's, from “On the Nature of Animus,” (1931), as published in Animus and Anima (1957).- Nunh-huh 07:22, 8 February 2006 (UTC)
It's been a month, and no one has given any reason here why the "accuracy dispute" should remain, so I'm removing it. - Nunh-huh 20:51, 10 March 2006 (UTC)

This entry contains absurd comments that make it totally unreliable. To say that Emma Jung “was a psychoanalyst before they married” is sheer nonsense. How could anyone be a psychoanalyst before 1903, moreover in Switzerland? Then “She was also in regular correspondence of her own with Sigmund Freud” – nonsense again. Only six letters of her to Freud are known, sent 1910-1911. Please, give this entry a strict scrutiny, as such a brilliant and charming person like Ms Jung deserves.
