Addie and Mary are pretty much together from the beginning, even though they're not official until later on. The protagonist is also coupled off with the prince character from the get go.
don't get me wrong, she does a fantastic job and I understand she wants compensation for her time and effort for translating. I totally get/support that and I understand splitting long chapters up, even if it's just for the pure fact you want people to support you on patreon. What I DON'T appreciate is how damn short the chapters are in the split up, killing the momentum of the story. Every single chapter is split into three parts, and those three parts are so short it's annoying. If you're going to split a single chapter up, why not split it into half? Why is every single chapter basically just 1 page of writing? I can totally understand and agree with the decision to paywall chapters that can entice people to pay if they want to read ahead and slowly release them for free for those who can't pay, but the decision to chop up the story to the extent where we artificially boost up the chapter amount waaaay beyond the actual amount just for profit annoys the hell out of me.
Carol really does end up with Wilhelm in the end!
