Helen Bauer, a beautiful young artist with modern ideas about sexual relationships, is in love with Don Peterson. The couple scorns marriage, but when Helen's conventional father, Adolphe, condemns their lifestyle, they acquiesce and marry. Soon, Don's advertising business troubles put a strain on the marriage and Helen discovers that he is seeing one of her married friends, Peggy. Helen is convinced that it is marriage that drove Don away and insists that they live separately, but remain lovers. One night when Don goes to see Helen, he finds she has a date with Nick Malvyn, a man about town. Don's jealousy sends him back to Peggy and Helen reacts by going to Nick's apartment. There Nick's amorous intentions are thwarted by the arrival of a mutual friend. When Helen returns home, though, she finds Don waiting and ready to forgive her. They reconcile their differences and agree that although marriage is not perfect, their love will survive it.
