Synopsis

Margaret and Don--an average American girl and boy--enter into a companionate marriage; Don goes philandering the first night after their honeymoon, and Margaret leaves him. She finds that no decent man of her own class will marry her and finally enters into another companionate marriage with Dirke, a self-made man much beneath her social station. Margaret has children and is content, but Dirke leaves her at the end of the marriage contract. She then marries a rich old man, quickly divorcing him to marry Drury, a suave young fellow who soon runs through all her alimony. Margaret kills Drury and is dragged away by the police. It all turns out to be a dream, however, and Margaret marries Don the next day in a church ceremony.
