Lighthearted Constance Talmadge stars in this frothy comedy-drama, which, entertaining as it was, had barely enough substance to carry it through five reels. Easygoing Barbara Townsend (Talmadge) is never jealous and allows her husband, Richard (Harrison Ford), to come and go as he pleases. Townsend, however, takes her considerate nature as neglect and he believes that Barbara has ceased to love him. Vampy Dorothy Mitchell (Betty Schade) convinces Townsend that he should seek a divorce, which he does, and Barbara is too proud to object. The divorce is granted, but they have three months until the final decree. Townsend becomes engaged to Dorothy, but he and Barbara keep on seeing each other on the side. With Barbara now in the role of "the other woman," the couple's passion is renewed once again. It isn't long before Townsend decides to dump Dorothy in favor of his wife.
