Forget My Husband, I’ll Go Make Money


Links are NOT allowed. Format your description nicely so people can easily read them. Please use proper spacing and paragraphs.

I became the wife of a man with a lover. Well then, I guess I have to protect his chastity?

“You can sleep on the floor then.”

“What?” His eyes said he didn’t want to.

Well, yeah. The floor was hard. Then it couldn’t be helped.

“I’ll just hold your hand and sleep. You trust me, right?”

But, how come the bed broke on my first night with my husband?


Aristine, a princess confined out of the Emperor’s sight.

When in reality, she was the owner of the [Monarch’s Sight], able to see the future, past, and present.

She, who became the sacrifice for a political marriage, was married off to a terrifying barbarian…

“The most precious things should naturally be given to my bride.”

But her husband, whose monstrosity she prepared for, was way too normal.

However, he belonged to someone else.

‘I’ll go make money then.’

She might as well make the goldfields her own.


Can Aristine really achieve her dream of living freely on a pile of money?

Or will she end up killing two birds with one stone?

Okay it might just be me being in a mood, but I loathe the pacing of this novel.

30 chapters in and we're only on day two of the story. It seems to be bogged down with daily activities and unnecessary conversations.

I'm all for world/character building but this isn't it, this is pure tediousness. It's hard to stay interested. Especially because we haven't gotten to its namesake, the story so far has had more romance than business.

It seems okay. The dialogue and monologues were confusing since you don't know who's talking. And I think the translator dropped this already.

About the MC, I like her. Her nonchalant attitude, her ambitions, I like it. The ML seems like a person who had a lot of sexual partners and it really puts me off.

I'll edit this review again once I'm finish reading this.

I like the story flow though but...


I don't like the male leads attitude so far and how he's just taking women and leaving them just like that! I am cheering for the MC and hope she can get her business through her husband like she wants. I mean like she should get at least that much.

I love the MC, she has one of the most unique personalities I've seen.

I am a little disappointed that I'm almost 100 chapters in and she hasn't started making money yet. There has been a lot of romantic and political buildup, tho, so it isn't boring. I just look forward to seeing her smash people with money.

First let me begin saying the translator is amazing. Their translation is really good. I like the MC's personality. The plot itself is... it's there. But not well paced out at all.

For once, the novel is worse than the manhwa adaptation, just because we get to skip a lot of the dumb thoughts of side characters in the manhwa. The villains are dumb and very very 1 dimensional. And we get chapters filled with just their dumb and illogical thoughts.

Like, do we really have to read two chapters back-to-back... more>> of Yurikarina (or whatever her dumb name is) talking about how she's the cutest princess alive and that father (emperor) loves her best? Or a whole chapter of Dianna thoughts which is comprised of her being delusional about her relationship with ML and how everyone falls for her manipulation because of her being her brother's sister? And how she's looking forward to MC's downfall so that she can finally marry the ML? Do we really need that? We got about 8 full chapters of Dianna's dumb thoughts. Write a paragraph about that and call it a day! Why are we getting chapters after chapters that adds nothing to the plot.

Secondly, what business? It's literally in the title that she wants to make money... but in 70 chapters, she mentioned her business like 2 times in passing but made no move to make that happen. It took around chapter 120 for her to start the prototype and hire one person. The novel is only like 180 chapters long!

Thirdly, how many times are we going to get the description of her beautiful lilac silver hair and amethyst eyes? We get it, she looks perfect like an angel. Ms. Author, you don't have to repeat this every couple of chapters. WE REMEMBERED HOW SHE LOOKS LIKE OK? WE GET IT.

Lastly, at this point, is there any Korean novels where the ML and MC didn't have a chance encounter as a child where ML grows to be so in love with her a decade later still? While also not recognizing the grown-up version of her. This is honestly so s*upid and felt insanely forced.

This series is basically 35% mean dumb characters talking about how they deserve everything the MC gets because MC is a half-wit unloved imprisoned princess. 45% on the description of MC's appearance and the detailed description of the food she's eating. Then 20% plot. <<less

Rating of 4 for now. So far I’m really liking the variety of character dynamics introduced and the slight comedic undertone is perfect for me! I like how MC flusters the ppl around her, including her husband.

I have no problems with the pacing or dialogues as some had pointed out in their reviews.

Glad that this translation project is under Rubymaybe! Perhaps we shall finally see another completed and quality KR novel translation! It’s sad that most KR novels get dropped halfway!

this has a good potential. The plot is interesting, the MC is calculative and not a doormat. Too bad it kinda got dropped hope someone would pick it up.


The story is interesting! The ML actually dont have any romantic/sexuaI affair with the king's concubine. It was the concubine who got hots for the ML. MC dgaf about the ML and only wants money like the title says. She is smart and has plans to attain her goals. I love the banter between the MC and ML, there's this buzzing chemistry... more>> which is great that they dont instantly fall in love with each other. WOuld recommend to read <3 <<less

Almost 70 chapters in I see nothing but one dimensional characters, with a very restricted set of interactions overall. It's been a total disaster. I was hoping to see something of substance by now, but guess not.

I am not sure how this level of brain dead one dimensionality can be considered a josei. If this was a piece of work that was entirely about simplicity and comedy I can understand, but the premise and tone the work tries to pretend is that it's some sort of drama comedy with... more>> at least some depth. It fails at that spectacularly

This really feels like it was written by a 13-14 yr old <<less

the author probably wanted to make badass MC who leaves everyone speachless, especially in some royal-court internal dramas way

as I read those attempts, it was me who become speachless instead, thinking many times "how something like that can make them shut?? There is more than dozen ways to retaliate to anything the MC spoke!"

it feels more like attempts on something, so don't expect some deep characters and smart dialogue that would leave big impression on you

if you don't have expectation of this story you might enjoy it, but if you... more>> expect too much by the summary and title, then there might be some dissapointment <<less

I like the fml's character — clever with her words, refreshing with a right of elegance and a has chill personality, and most of all capable in her own ways. As of now, I have nothing to point out about her character because I liked the way how laid back she is despite the ridicule she have received.

On the other hand, the ML is not that bad, but I couldn't stop comparing him to my favored ML of all time from another novel. He's in the middle of a scale... more>> between likeable and dull (as in boring) : he can be likeable in some ways because at least he respected her even when she was in a dirty state, next is he can be cute sometimes when he misunderstood the fml's (not-so-provocative) words. However, one reason I find him boring as of now is because the fML has shown personality and almost of the situations were all about her languidly slaying the clowns. Also, I was kind of disappointed when

he did not read the reports about fml's abuse. Although he had reasoned that nothing would change because of her position, I would personally checked her background if it's 1. Jeopardize his position 2. If she had suspicious shits going on around her 3. Just a fact check on on how should he deal her before and after the wedding

things like thinking critically (about his prospective partner) and a better character judge, though he didn't do anything annoying yet, but I wished he's more of a dynamic person?

As per the pacing of the story, I do not have much qualms about it being slowed but I don't definitely think that her making preparations to her business should be rushed either since she started gaining attention of her enemies. It will go on eventually and surely. Moreover, I personally think that there's no boring situation when the fML is ready to kick ass with her tea and desserts. <<less

i like her a lot! I also like the fact that shes not really focused on revenge like many fl's are but instead wants to make a life for herself while coexisting with the ml. Shes def a girlboss and he is absolutely a malewife (or is becoming one) so they're really well matched. Chapters feel short though but I think it will get better since the translator says shes gonna focus on putting out more chapters for this novel as opposed to her other one. I think the translator... more>> splits up each chapter into like 5-6 pieces which I think is why some people aren't fond of the pacing, but if you read it from start to finish, the pacing is just fine <<less

    • Story pace is a little too slow.
    • Villains are idiotic and superficial considering they're supposed to be at the top of their hierarchy. You'd think a queen would be capable of manipulations above highschool mean girl level.

      It looks like there is one who's more intelligent than a monkey but it looks like it's heading straight to 'you're interesting let me simp for you - territory'. It also looks like we have an extra annoying c*ckroach that'll have to get stomped on later which is annoying, to say the least. It's an uninteresting plotline.

    • ML is alright. A bit of a hypocrite in that he denies his feelings for the MC because he's choosing to remain forever single because of a kid he met once, but who isn't? His interactions with people besides the MC are hilarious but I'd like more information into why they've followed this man aside from the fact that he's: (a) the prince, (b) not an as*hole like wicked stepmom, and (c) he's wicked strong. Because those are the basics of every ML ever. I want to know what makes him different, but I can also handle if he's just generic.
    • The Supporting Characters are fun, not annoying, although some worship the MC because of ridiculous misunderstandings. They are overall, bending their neck backwards for MC - I can't blame them for that though. But the story could use more dimension from the characters surrounding the main ones.
Main Character is... contradictory.

    1. She should have been able to solve all of her problems so far without her ability. It's not that hard when you live in a world that's this far in technology compared to the era she currently resides in.
    2. The story has become predictable in a sense that she has to rely on a vision for the solution when a user was able to predict it. (Chapter 166, User: Feyliya on Sept. 19, 2022. "I think Aristine is about to reinvent recycling.")
    3. Her EQ is all over the place. There is a very big correlation to politics and social interaction. This is where her visions should have been used more as she was (it gets revealed early on) imprisoned for around ten years. Her ability does not equal to that of a TV, and with how infrequent her visions are, it doesn't make sense how she's able to maneuver situations to her advantage when she turns as dense as bedrock the next chapter.
    4. Her denial and reluctance to admit helping people is one of her driving forces for her decisions remind me of Cale from TCF, though not as well written.

I do understand this is for light readers. The story is cliche but wholesome and very fluffy. You

could consider it Found Family if you ignore the other side of the family tree on both ends. I enjoy reading this, I recommend you do if you just want something easy. These are just the things that linger at the back of my mind and I just wanted to give a more in-depth review for would-be readers that need more information.

Lastly, the translator, Miss Ruby who I am incredibly grateful for I've been a fan since Lucia and YGTWHV, does have a lot of projects so the updates are short and maybe once a week? Not relevant: I've read this story from the start when it was first translated, dropped until now and finished to CH 180 in two days, so you might wanna wait a little bit more :)

Ok its really slow paced. The story is okay but I have read till ch 65 and there is not even a sign of her starting a business yet. And the Monarch's Sight she uses... Like she only used it on Day 1 and after that nothing.

Overall, this novel is good enough if you're into the genre and are looking for a light read to turn you brain off, but it's not something I'd recommend as actually good.

I like the protagonist, due to her confinement she lacks emotions and is expressionless (not completely), but at the same time she does have knowledge of human interactions and stuff. Sometimes this kind of protagonist ends up being a boring empty husk with no personality (I say this as someone that likes this character archetype), but in this case... more>> she's intresting enough.

The story is very standard and predictable. The pacing is slow, but it's not too slow; it didn't feel like an issue while I was reading at least.

My biggest issue with the novel are the antagonists, they are way too dumb and incompetent to be taken seriously, in turn that makes the protagonist's achievement feel cheap and the story unintresting.

Translation is good. The mistakes are few, small, and easy to overlook. <<less

This novel is just perfect so far... Just a bit of slow paced but other than that it's just perfect.

The MC's character is impressive and also innocent and quick witted at the same time...

And the ML has a strong personality but he holds a soft spot for the FL and more than that atleast he's not a jerk to her.. some people are like blaming him for keeping no. Of women but it's just a misunderstanding... He was never having any romantic relationship with Diana it was her being delusional... more>> on her own and he's been in love with MC ever since he was 10 <<less

First, I think the title shouldn’t be taken seriously. The story isn’t entirely about doing business, it’s just a small part of it. The title speaks more of the princess’ personality, not the plot.

On that note, I think the plot has a lot more potential for growth. The story pacing is pretty slow. A couple of chapters may depict only 3 days, but personally I don’t mind this slow burn much. Especially since we really see how their relationship slowly changes. As of c192 we’re still in the shallows, nothing... more>> too deep going on yet but I feel we’re getting there and when we do, it’s gonna be fire🔥. To that, I’m looking forward. Really wish I could read the whole story right now TT

As for characters, I’m loving everyone right now.

MC is really right up my alley. She’s calm and very clear-headed about the ongoings, except a little dull on emotional aspects but in an endearing and funny way.

ML wasn’t at all like what another reviewer said. He’s not casual about relationships at all, it’s very much the opposite actually. He’s serious and cautious, understandable considering his current position. <<less

Only recently stumbled across and binged this novel. Big fan so far. Plenty of political backdrop and mysterious past (not yet fully revealed as is appropriate). Very well translated.

I'd warn of a sleuth of pesky villainous side characters, who I would consider as almost getting to the annoying stage, BUT the author makes great use of humour which in many situations makes it all worth it. This is one of the enjoyable novels I'd actually laugh out loud from 😊👍

There also exist misunderstandings between the FL and ML. At chapter... more>> 177 we're about at the stage where we'll see whether this would become a longstanding annoyance..I mean I get both ML and FL ain't great at communications, but the extent to which easily clarify-able misunderstandings dictate the plot.. Let's see how this plays out🍀 (can see the novel fall to a 4 from a 5 if long-standing annoyance). <<less

Im going to complain but this is a good plot. I meant the plot had the potential to develop more. But the whole story--how the author uses that plot--nah.

The story is super slow, in terms of development of the plot. Author keep on using characters in repeat and unnecessarily. One character name rosalyn, was often used. At first I thought she was a servant cuz the way they acted but they started to call her lady. I know nobles looked down on people who are not noble. But FL is... more>> a princess and an actual biological daughter of the emperor. Nobles value etiquette and their faces but somehow this group of court ladies, dont. They ARE rude and just plain annoying. While FL just do nothing, ignore them and uses words to face slap them and then repeat. It's the same with the knights it was not enough that one of the knight got broken nose and was in prison. They do what they want and FL just fcking don't care. I get it that FL dont care (in literally everything except when its about her) but the author do same thing over and over again, in the same characters and in the same context. It become unnecessary and simply annoying. It was prolonged throught he story.

Secondly, idk if this is on the translator but the more I read about their 'quest' onto making the scalpel the more I thought that the blacksmith should be called craftsman. Blacksmith are known to do weapons and armors. They are rough, burly amd uses hammer and heat. Blacksmith dont have the meticulous details such as craftsman but this one employee can make small things like accessories, that scalpel and sht, like a craftsman.

Also may I add scalpel wasn't the biggest issue in surgery it was the exposure of our insides from outside. Our organs are not meant to be in the exposed. She should just invented antiseptic solutions, that would be a game changer. Or even gloves if she may. Cuz scalpel only do is to cut. Yes it was all true about the list she made how scalpel could help but really its minimal.

What I like the most is how FL doesn't care. But also what I hate the most cuz I like things to be done quickly. She was abused multiple times by the people from her own kingdom but never really deal with them. She just let them shouts at her, scold her say things in front of her or behind her just cuz ShE DoEsn't cArE. Ugh.

Dont get me wrong this is good. Just manage ur expectations. I recommend reading this. Cuz if you dont like it then we suffer together. But just try this and then judge it. <<less

its interesting how she was able to learn so much just from her ability alone, but im really thankful for that. Because of her ability she was able to get through the schemes of the other people which dont like her. Im also getting bad vibes from the blue hair, I dont care if her brother died as a collateral but atleast dont use him to get the people to blindly follow you because of pity
