Martha and Max are just married when he gets a letter from his lawyer notifying him that he will receive a 3 million dollar inheritance if he is not married.  As anyone would do, Max starts concocting a plan to keep both the money and his wife Martha.  His idea is to cause a divorce, obtain his inheritance, and get married with Martha again.
