Madge Bellamy stars as Nancy Woods, the secretary to a successful divorce lawyer. Soured on matrimony by the examples set in her boss' office, Nancy decides to marry for money then dump her husband and live off the alimony. When she entraps millionaire Stockney Webb (Johnny Mack Brown) as her hubby, Nancy falls in love with the guy and can't go through with her scheme. But Webb, having been apprised of Nancy's plan by her "friend" Lorna Estabrook (Mary Duncan), renounces his new wife on their wedding night and refuses to have anything to do with her. Upon discovering that Lorna spilled the beans so she could get her own hands on Webb, the reluctant bridegroom finally relents and agrees not to divorce Nancy -- who, by this time, could care less about alimony.
