Brad proposes to Marcia, but makes her vow that he's the first man she's ever loved--his mother left his father and returned to her first husband, so he's insecure. Marcia doesn't tell him about her "schoolgirl-crush" Jim, but when Jim comes back to town and blackmails her, she has to give him cash and her engagement ring. Marcia reports the ring stolen and Jim is arrested; her past is exposed to Brad. Marcia and Brad mutually apologise and will be wed.
