ML realizes that MC was framed after she faked her death so he ordered a group of men to rape and harass that Xia girl. MC got beat up and almost miscarried like 3xs and ML wanted her to have an abortion. But lo and behold they still get back together because she has Stockholm syndrome and he saved her life that 1 time 20yrs ago? At the end of the novel everything was explained because of love.
Honestly in my humble opinion, MC should've died... or married 2nd ML and only showed up to ruin ML and green tea b***hs life. Then went back to 2nd ML
So we later come to learn that the ML actually loved the original Song Wuyou but because of her wayward personality he decided to act like a detached emotionally abusing cheating jerk. (and yes, it counts as cheating if you knowingly express warm loving feelings to someone other than your wife whilst you literally treat your wife like trash) So throughout the original relationship he ignores her and put her onto a downward self destroying spiral and when she almost dies he didn't even visit her but just sent the butler to serve her divorce papers. Fast forward towards now, new chick he turns to love this so called wife because she ignores him like how he ignored the original owner. like wtf?
