Sophisticated New York couple David and Annie Smith
have an unusual marriage with an inordinate number of
rules and regulations. One rule entitles them to ask
each other one question per month which the other must
answer completely honestly. Annie asks David if he would
marry her again if he could have the time over again
and David confides that he misses his freedom and so
probably wouldn't. Later that day, an official from
the town where they got married calls to see David.
He explains that owing to a state boundary dispute,
all couples married between 1936 and 1939 in the county
were not legally married. David decides to have fun
with this fact, but unbeknown to him, the county official
calls to see Annie too and disaster results.
