Summary Amanda and Elyot--a witty, sophisticated married couple--divorce and marry other mates. Amanda chooses stuffy Victor, while Elyot's selection is the tiresome Sibyl. Coincidentally, both newlywed couples honeymoon at the same Swiss hotel--in adjoining suites, in fact. Amanda and Elyot realize anew that the flame of their love has never been extinguished, but when both slip off for a lover's tryst, they fall into their old pattern of ceaseless bickering. When Victor and Sibyl catch up with their erring mates, they themselves begin arguing.
