Lillian Hillary (Bessie Barriscale) is of the opinion that a young girl should marry for love. Lillian's pragmatic mother Lucy (Truly Shattuck) wants the girl to marry for money. Mama wins out, and Lillian marries wealthy Bert Werden (Frank Mills), but the girl makes no secret of the fact that, were it not for Bert's money, she wouldn't give him the time of day. Bert doesn't believe this until he loses his fortune, whereupon Lillian tells him to find a new source of income fast, or else she's out the door. Accordingly, Bert enters the world of Wall Street negotiations, and before long he has rebuilt his fortune. Unfortunately, he is now so dedicated to his work that he has no time for Lillian. Realizing that love is, indeed, the only true reason for marriage, Lillian manages to arrange for Bert to go broke again, so that the couple can start life all over again, broke but happy.
