Storyline

Salesman Warren Kent develops the idea of "The Unending Courtship" and manages to convince his new wife Betty of his theory, which entails their living separately and only meeting on Wednesday evenings, as they did while they were engaged. Warren's boss, however, who was never enamored of the idea, fires him when he bungles an account and loses the company a large order. On top of that, through a series of misunderstandings Warren comes to believe that his wife is pregnant and his mother-in-law believes that Warren is having an affair with Betty's friend Ethel. Things go downhill for Warren from there. Written by frankfob2@yahoo.com

When's The Honeymoon?
16 March 2019 | by bobliptonSee all my reviews

Bryant Washburn and Mildred Davis are getting married. Washburn has a theory about marriage that he persuades Mildred to put into effect: the Eternal Courtship. He'll show up for two hours each Wednesday with a bunch of flowers and stay for a couple of hours. Thus, their relationship will never become stale. Everyone who knows about this thinks it as stupid an idea as I do. Mildred tells her friend, Margaret Livingston, that Washburn, who is a salesman, is out of town a lot.

Theories about marriage and relationships keep shifting all the time. Certainly, in the last two decades they've changed. In the era of this movie, people talked about "companionate marriage", which meant no children. This is a sort of anti-companionate marriage; one of the plots has Washburn finding his wife has been knitting baby clothes.

This is a comedy with a normative viewpoint, set up to fail from its very beginning, with a title that proclaims that end. As a result, despite some talented performers and some moderately amusing sequences, it is the cinematic embodiment of its own title.
