Having rushed into marriage, a young married couple–Jane and Johnny Mason (Carole Lombard and James Stewart)–finds many problems from all sides. First, Johnny's boss Judge Joseph Doolittle (Charles Coburn) is displeased because he wanted Johnny to marry his daughter (Ruth Weston) and calls him back to work immediately as a trial lawyer. Thus, the honeymoon must be skipped. Johnny's mother (Lucile Watson) moves in with the couple and is hypocritical of everything Jane does. Later, when their baby is born, more problems rise to the fore, and the marriage appears doomed. Then, on New Years Eve, their baby son becomes ill with pneumonia. Johnny appeals to Judge Doolittle for help in obtaining the needed medicine, and he comes to their aid–saving both the baby and the marriage as well.
