Randolph Haven (Robert Young), an irresponsible sort, and his wife Norma (Ruth Hussey), have been married for seven years and still very much in love, although Norma is dissatisfied with their hand-to-mouth life style and gets a job as a saleslady. Randolph, seeking an easier pursuit, goes into partnership with a bookie and, in order to cover a bet, sells a manuscript on "The Psychology of Marriage", a situation that is fraught with problems, not the least being in that he didn't write the book, and that he also has to pose as a bachelor. He begins to believe in his fake personality to the extent he insists on living in a penthouse. Then the publisher falls in love with Norma, not knowing she is married to Randolph, the bachelor expert on marriage.Written by

This doesn't have very many big-name stars. Not too many people have heard of this movie. In fact, when I'm writing this comment, it doesn't even have the 5 votes yet.
But this is a pretty good movie. Don't expect anything spectacular, but it has some good laughs. The two stars have good chemistry. The plot is well-written but somewhat predictable. Not the best movie, but not a complete waste of time.
