That Mrs. Renney (Donald Henderson Clarke, 1937)

Dan is passionately, devotedly, slavishly in love with Alice, but Ike invited her to the dance first and she already accepted. Dan is so hurt he wants to show Alice what it’s like, and, well, one thing leads to another and he finds himself married to Helen, an alcoholic would-be actress. Dan’s family is comfortably well off but by no means rich. Nevertheless, Helen milks the Renneys for every penny she can get. Her affairs are notorious, but Dan’s faith is blind to a fault. Once they’re bankrupted, she plans on divorcing him.
