In this drawn-from-life ABC Afterschool Special, high-school teacher Mr. Webster (Larry Keith) introduce a course in "marriage," designed to teach his students what to expect once they've "tied the knot," and to develop a sense of financial and moral responsibility. On day one of the course, each student is assigned a spouse; on day 15, the couple is given a "baby"; and by day 40, the students have either passed the class or they've been "divorced." The most mismatched of Mr. Webster's couples is a stubborn male athlete (James Carroll) and a stuck-up budding feminist (Janina Mathews) -- so guess who ends up learning the most from their faux matrimonial experience!
