Paul Manning (Walter Matthau) discovers one day that his dear friend and neighbor Ed Stander (Robert Morse) has been cheating on his wife. Curious, he asks Ed about it and is given the history and tatics of men who have successfully cheated on their wives. With each new story and tatic Paul can't help but notice the attractive blonde that lives nearby.

Although Paul gets close to cheating on his wife he never does go through with it. In a scene near the end when he is in a hotel room with another woman he hears sirens approaching. He panics and waits for the police to open the door only to find the police going to the room next door where his friend Ed is in bed with another woman. Paul takes this opportunity to flee the scene and run home to his beloved wife (Inger Stevens).

A Guide for the Married Man posed additional challenges for John Williams: because the film skips quickly from one sequence to another, tied together by voiceovers, the score was required not only to support the comedic action, but to tie the disparate sequences into a seamless whole.
Williams' score for A Guide for the Married Man is a veritable catalog of the diverse styles in which he had become adept at writing over the previous decade: everything from goofy, faux-hip source music to bold orchestral scoring featuring brass fanfares and his trademark woodwind runs.
