Sandy Jenkins, a $40-a-week draftsman, marries Lil Morse, though her mother disapproves of the match, preferring Mr. Himmelschlosser, Sandy's employer. After their honeymoon, the couple take an apartment in the same building with Lil's family, and she takes up domestic duties with enthusiasm. Lil plans a surprise birthday dinner for Sandy, but he and his friends inadvertently discover the food beforehand and eat it; Sandy pacifies Lil by promising to take the party to the theater, but he becomes jealous at Mr. Himmelschlosser's boasting and self-esteem; as a result he schemes to get work with a rival advertising agency and on credit takes an expensive apartment. But during a business deal, his deception is discovered and he is fired; as a result he is estranged from Lil. He is reinstated in his job and is reunited with his wife, however, when his employer, Mr. Abbott, reaps the results of a property sale arranged by Sandy.
