Partners for Life (1912)
- Summaries (1)
In a little two-room flat Molly and Tommy begin their married life after a brief honeymoon. Tommy has subconscious ideas as to the necessity of a man establishing his authority in the home, believing in mastership rather than partnership of husband and wife. Molly has her ideas, too, and makes every effort to assert her rights. At first the struggle for mastery is laughable and droll, but subsequently he begins a course of action that reduces Molly to misery. It goes so far that she decides to leave him and go back to earning her own living, but her friend, Ethel Mayhorn, who is a manicure lady and full of worldly wisdom, counsels otherwise. After all, as Ethel points out, the struggle for mastery, conscious or unconscious, is incidental to the beginning of all marriages. The thing to do is not to run away, but to fight for herself. So Molly, acting on her friend's advice, adopts a course of action that proves to Tommy, that he depends on her as much as she depends on him. Tommy, who had looked upon his wife's friend as a disturber, changes his views when he realizes that she is the guardian angel who brought peace and happiness to his household and made married life worthwhile after all. Instead of spending his evenings playing cards with his friends and neglecting his wife, he now stays at home and lends every assistance in the performance of her household duties, and occasionally takes her to the theater and happily considers her as his partner.
