Synopsis

Ann Marvin, who is thoroughly disillusioned about marital bliss because of the turbulence in her sister Clara's marriage, meets Robert Collings, a millionaire gold miner, while visiting her brother-in-law Bertrand's law office. Bertrand invites Collings to dinner, and before his arrival, Clara stages a battle royal over Bertrand's buying a dress for Alvarez Guerra, who is also invited to dinner, and the two women ultimately come to blows. When Collings proposes marriage to Ann, she compromises by offering to work as housewife for a salary ($25,000 a year), he accepts, agreeing that each will be free to consort with his own friends. When she remains indifferent to him, Collings arouses her jealousy by flirting with Miss Guerra; she responds by romancing De Witt. The reconciliation of the Bertrands, however, causes the Collingses to realize a genuine feeling for each other.
