Synopsis

Bobby Halvey and Rims O'Neil marry and settle down to love in a cottage. They soon find that married life is more bills than romance, and Bobby leaves Rims, not because she no longer loves him but because she honestly believes that he would be happier without her. She returns to her old job and takes up residence in a boardinghouse. Lonely and hurt, Rims comes to her and asks her to come back to him. She refuses, declaring that she wants a lover, not a husband. Bobby stays in the boardinghouse, and Rims comes to her after dark, sneaking in by the fire escape.
