Very much her mother's daughter, Edith Emerson (Gloria Swanson intends to keep her new husband Frank (Joe King) by following her mom's advice and "managing" Frank's every move. To escape the domineering Edith, Frank spends more and more time at the office. Before long, he has inaugurated an affair with sexy model Delia Marshall (Lillian West), who unlike Edith caters to his every whim. At first, Edith is outraged, but upon learning that her own father was likewise driven into the arms of another woman by her mother's oppressiveness, our heroine changes her ways and becomes an "ideal wife." Everywoman's Husband could hardly be considered a recruiting film for the Feminist Movement.
