Margaret ( Patsy Ruth Miller ) and Don ( Lawrence Gray ), an average American girl and boy, enter into a companionate marriage, and Don goes philandering the first night after their honeymoon, so Margaret leaves him. She finds that no decent man of her own class will marry her and finally enters into another companionate marriage with Dirke ( Duke Martin ), a self-made man much beneath her social station. Margaret has children and is content, but Dirke leaves her at the end of the marriage contract. She then marries a rich old man, quickly divorcing him to marry Drury ( Raymond Keane ), a suave young fellow who soon runs through all her alimony. Margaret kills Drury and is dragged away by the police. It all turns out to be a dream, however, and Margaret marries Don the next day in a church ceremony.
This 1928 drama was produced by Tiffany-Stahl Productions, a silent film, with talking sequences, synchronized music and sound effects, starring Patsy Ruth Miller. The survival status of Marriage by Contract is listed as unknown, sadly suggesting it may now be a lost silent.
