I really liked this novel in the beginning. Until around chapter 110, I'd almost say, it's one of the best transmigration novels I've read (and I've read quite a few) - it has humor, the FL is witty and smart, the world building is nice, even the ML is quite interesting.

The plot isn't all that original, but the characters make up for it with charm and sympathy and I was really, really cheering at them to get together... until they did. And then everything went down the drain.

Like several reviewers before me have mentioned, as soon as the ML and the FL get together (and by that I mean sleeping together) the ML turns from kinda-nice gentle husband into rapist. And yes, it is rape if you sleep with your non-consenting wife, something the author doesn't seem to know or care about.

It's repeatedly mentioned that the FL is in intense pain, doesn't enjoy a single second of it and the ML continues to force her against her will. People, that's rape. Plain and simple. And no matter what anyone says it's NOT OKAY, dammit.

I continued to read anyways, because I felt I owed this novel a chance to make up for it. I loved it a lot before so I continued reading until now and I did like some of it - I even still like the romance between the two leads... if you take out the s*xual part. I hoped it would get better, that he would see his faults and things would take a sensible turn but I'm starting to think it will never happen.

And as much as I'd like to continue reading, supporting something like domestic violence goes against everything I am and stand for, so nope. Totally dropping this. Maybe I'll get back to it one day... but not until it changes drastically and the ML stops being an abusive d*ck - which probably won't happen any time soon, I'm afraid.

It's not a bad novel. That's why I gave it two stars, the translation is superb, the scenes are funny and sweet at times. If you're able to abandone your moral integrity as a human being, go on and read it. Or just skip every intimate scene and pretend it doesn't exist.

I'm genuinely sad at the fact that it turned out this way, that I have to drop one of my favorite reads, but I can't support this kind of thing anymore. The translators are doing an amazing job, but supporting an author that clearly turns a blind eye to rape and domestic violence... nope. Nope. Aaand, nope. <<less
