Clay Forrester is wealthy, on his way to becoming a lawyer, and has a beautiful on-and-off girlfriend, Jill, who has similar aspirations. But when Clay and Jill were on a relationship break, Clay went on a blind date with Catherine Anderson, who seems an unlikely match for him. She is a nineteen-year-old student from a working class family with an abusive father. After a good amount of wine on their blind date, Clay and Catherine sleep together, and she gets pregnant. Catherine seeks out a home for unwed pregnant girls to get away from both Clay and her abusive father. But she can't avoid Clay forever, and soon she is confronted by him. They make a deal to get married. For Clay, his reputation would be saved and his goal of becoming a lawyer is not at stake; for Catherine, she would have a better place to stay and financial security for the baby. They begin their marriage as just acquaintances, but gradually fall in love as they await the birth of their child.
