My Wife is My Life!

Description

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

Ji Qingqing was at the end of her rope. When she was on the brink of wretched poverty, she received a system. The system told her; Lu Lixing came from a family that was rolling in money, but he was coming to the end of his allotted lifespan. If she married him, she would gain his enormous inheritance.

Lu Lixing was seriously ill. Just as he was about to die, he gained a system. The system told him: Ji Qingqing was young and beautiful. She was rich in vitality. If he married her, he could continue living.

Ji Qingqing happily came to Lu Lixing’s sickbed.

And then, Lu Lixing woke up.

***

Lu Lixing’s friends discovered that after Lu Lixing woke up, not only did this person that had always kept his distance from women gotten married, he spent every day being super clingy towards his wife.

Young Lu, can you be a little less embarrassing and act your age? Will you die if you take one step away from your wife?

Lu Lixing clutched his chest. His little heart had almost stopped beating because Ji Qingqing had left him for half an hour. He weakly waved his hand. He couldn’t be separated from her, not for the rest of his life. She was his life.

Such a nice read. Not overly dramatic and very sweet and funny. Even though there is a lot of miscommunication between the lead characters it is very understandable. The tasks given by the system are so funny and a bit random that it is a given FL will be confused by ML abruptness. That being said the FL is so understanding that she will try to rationalise everything towards ML favor. Because of that I feel like the relationship between the two is very well matched.

Synopsis makes it sound like a fluff story, but so far at c75 it's just painful to read. Not much is happening with their relationship and only the ML gets forced to do stuff from the system. MC just does whatever. Thought by this point it would progress a bit.

Ahh~ I was planning to translate this novel as well T^T.

Anyways, everyone, this is one amazing story everyone so give it a try. It's funny to see how both the ML and MC are trying to survive by courting each other because of their systems, yet inexplicably falling in love at the same time

Interesting summary that hooked me, MC transmigration into book as supporting female lead. As I reading this novel in raw. This novel is so funny and sweet. Omg I couldn't stop laugh at every chapter. The way ML touch MC to get 1 hour life value or force her to called him husband multiple to get life value. MC being confused by his action and thought him as crazy guy. I like system. Love both couple.

I don't like scum male protagonist and bit*h female protagonist. They both look like fake... more>> and hyprocrite people.

Recommend if you like sweet and funny novel like The Former Wife of Invisible Wealthy Man

Moreover this novel is from same author of my favorite novel I'm Pregnant with the Villain's Child. <<less

I swear this is the most entertaining romcom web novel I've ever read 😂😂😂😂😂

Tired of the cliche female cannon fodder transmigration/reincarnation stories with reasonable sysadmin? There you have it. An unconventional system with domineering CEO ML as the main character.

It's just fun to read how a high profile ML groveling over FL's affection to complete game-like task.

TL/DR: I don't like the direction that the author went with the story

Rambling thoughts: I really liked the premise of the My Wife is My Life and the earlier chapters where it seemed like it was about two people getting a second chance and helping each other. I would have loved to see Ji Qingqing fixing the misunderstanding between Elder Lu and his grandson and for Lu Lixing to see that his grandfather wants him to be happy and not overworked to the point of thinking death wouldn't be so... more>> bad. But as the story progresses, Lu Lixing and Ji Qingqing's relationship gets more and more lopsided, and I feel bad for him. If both Lu Lixing and Ji Qingqing were assigned tasks, I think the story would be much better.

I liked the idea that the male lead wasn't a perfect machine that gets amazing results without consequences to his mental and physical health. I think it would have been way more interesting if this near death experience made him reexamine his life and he stepped down as CEO to pursue his own interests.

Spoiler

"Lu Lixing wasn't actually asleep. He had been lying in bed and waiting for his death.

What was the point in living another day? He had lived for almost thirty years, but not a single day had been his to do as he pleased.

When he was younger, in addition to doing arduous schoolwork, he had to learn extra skills whether or not he liked them.

Those skills had been called his hobbies. But, how can they be his hobbies when he didn't like them at all?

As an adult, he was responsible for the Lu family's enterprise. His parents had died while he was young, and his younger brother had left home. His old grandfather could only rely on him.

Everyday, he had to mediate the major and minor conflicts that came up at work. There was never a carefree day for him.

Lu Lixing was mentally and physically exhausted.

The month after his car accident could be considered the most leisurely period of time in his life.

Actually, passing away in his sleep didn't sound too bad. Lu Liting was back, so there would be someone to take care of his grandfather and the family business." - from part 20

[collapse]

I wish the author had followed through with this idea instead of dropping it in favor of Lu Lixing stepping back into his CEO role.

---

I like slow burn romances, but this isn't it. This is one person being held hostage by a system and another party reaping the benefits of that and not even appreciating it. How is that love? At the beginning of the story, the tasks the system gives is so that these two won't misunderstand each other and to push them to give each other a chance, but now it's just straight up forcing Lu Lixing to do one-sided extravagant romantic gestures on top of his heavy workload. The system won't allow Lu Lixing to misunderstand Ji Qingqing, but her misunderstands about him are piling up. If the system's goal is to get them to fall in love, it shouldn't allow that. It's not fair to either of them if Ji Qingqing misunderstands the reasons why Lu Lixing is doing these things for her.

It feels like the system is using operant conditioning and a twisted displaced version of stockholm syndrome on Lu Lixing. I don't find it funny when Lu Lixing gets so close to death because Ji Qingqing is dithering around. When I read the spoilers, it seemed fluffy and fun, but reading the novel and seeing that Lu Lixing is being threatened by the system into doing all these things on top of his already heavy workload, I feel bad for him. It would have been more interesting for Lu Lixing to bluff that he would choose death over being held hostage for the rest of his life and at the mercy of the system. What is the system going to do about it? Or, for him to simply question the system why it wants him to do all these things for Ji Qingqing. And, logically, he should be way more concerned about Ji Qingqing's safety since he knows his life is tied to hers.

---

I liked Ji Qingqing's character at the beginning of the novel a lot, but she becomes increasingly unlikeable and inconsistent. She comes off as preachy and entitled. She expects Lu Lixing to solve all of her problems, uses his status and power without reservation, and was even thinking about getting a share of his assets in divorce after being married to him for only 3 days. I feel like the author tries to have her cake and eat it too. She wants to justify Ji Qingqing mooching off of Lu Lixing by saying we shouldn't judge women for marrying or dating someone for money and using the original owner as an arguing point, but that's conflating two different issues. Ji Qingqing does nothing in return for Lu Lixing and calls him a pervert at the drop of a hat. Yes, she married him and the system rewarded him with an extended life, but that's the system giving him something, not her. Marrying someone means their partners in life and it's a two way street, not just one person being showered in gifts and doing nothing. If you take away the lying part, Shen Weiwei isn't any different from Ji Qingqing. They're both using men to solve their problems, and Shen Weiwei isn't holding herself as morally superior.

I understand that Ji Qingqing is in a much weaker position than Lu Lixing, so she can't easily help him in return, but that shouldn't stop her from feeling appreciation on how much easier he makes her life. She's completely ungrateful that she won the jackpot in transmigrating into a beautiful body that has a ton of financial assets and a very kind grandfather-in-law without having to do anything. This feels even more noticeable because I'm translating The Villain's Mother. If Ji Qingqing and Ruan Xia (from The Villain's Mother) were in the same novel, they would be foils. Their quality of life has drastically improved after transmigrating, but while one character feels appreciative and grateful, the other one isn't.

In the author's other novels, because the plot moves at brisk pace, it's easy to overlook points that don't make sense. It doesn't help that less than a week has passed in My Wife is My Life, and we're already 19% of the way through the story by word count. The author keeps rehashing the same points without progressing the storyline or having any character development. It feels frustrating that the issue with Shen Weiwei framing the original owner still hasn't fully resolved as of raw chapter 21.

---

To end on a positive note, I liked the premise and setup of the story. The author introduces so many interesting ideas, but she fails in execution and common sense in certain areas (for example, basic understanding of divorce laws). I've read three of her novels, and I like how her male leads and their motivations are very different in each novel. I like Elder Lu and how the almost death of his grandson has helped reassess his values. I like that once Lu Lixing recovers, Elder Lu doesn't push him to stay married to Ji Qingqing. He just wants his grandson to be happy.

I also think the story has very good twists at the very end, and the author does resolve everything within the last few chapters. I just wish those points had been resolved or explored earlier in the novel instead of left to the last minute.

I would recommend reading this novel if you're in the mood to read faceslapping, this novel definitely meets expectations in that area. There's also plenty of positive reviews for this story on Novel Updates, and I agree with lots of the points made in them. <<less

Loved the story. ML takes time to warm up to MC which actually makes sense since he was in just for survival. MC also slowly falls for ML.

As for the O!Host's black reputation, some of it was due to her own nature and actions, some was due to external exaggerations and some was due to enemies in the circle. What I absolutely loved about this whole black reputation part was that MC didn't try to whitewash her reputation and ML didn't hold it against her.

All MC explained was that she... more>> was young and dumb and ML accepted that she had a past and didn't exert any sort of stupid and toxic masculinity / jealousy against her.

There is no villainess as such. The FP acts like a white lotus yada yada but doesn't really employ more aggressive tactics.

Best part -

Spoiler

Both of them come clean to each other about their systems! MC is hurt that all the romantic gestures ML had enacted was due to the system. She walks away to cool her head, goes to her siblings' place and gets drunk. They call ML and demand answers, he rushes to her and then confesses how he has fallen in love with her. For real.

That's it. No more drama, no delays. MC accepts and demands he re-do each romantic gesture with system prompt and he is super happy to do it.

[collapse]

TL - 5/5

Story - 5/5

1v1, no cheating, no abuse, no drama, no unbelievable villains, sweet romance <<less

It was such a good readdd.

The romance between the two is quite late because of the premise of the story, but from the start both of them are already lovey dovey. It's so sweet that I'm getting a diabetes. The plot of the story is good and I like how the reveal of both of MC and ML secrets, because they really bare out their heart for the other. TBH I cried so hard in that scene. MC and ML don't have any misunderstanding between them, but only real love... more>> that was built on lies which is quite hurt : (

But at least both MC and ML know they love each other before it's too late.

Spoiler

I cried a lot towards the climaks of the story, it was such a love that is willing to even trade your life for your loved one (´;ω;`)

Another similar novel I would recommend is the former wife of an invisible wealthy man. :) <<less

Finally! Took me three days to finish MTL-ed this novel. First of all, I am so glad give this story a chance because it totally worth it. No heartwrenchin scene, no major misunderstand (Thanks to the system). If you looking for a slow romance than you might like this. Both MC and ML are likeable character. The MTL also easy to read. My only complain is their less lovey dovey hot moment took so much time before it happened. Like seriously, I almost assumed there will be no kissing scene... more>> in this story. So, overall I'll recommend this story to you. <<less

I just completed reading the raws and I have to say it was a very satisfying read.

The story itself has a light-hearted vibe to it, although the obstacles that occur in the story would beg to disagree.

The MC is not a white lotus nor is she a revenge-seeking ghost, she is someone who makes decision rationally and is a normal minded person (i say normal minded cause she is not dumb to the point of being oblivious to what's happening and not black-bellied to the point that she manipulates everything).

The... more>> ML is a serious guy not extremely cold and high above like the typical CEO ML's rather he is a guy who didn't get to experience the most basic things cause of the responsibilities he held as the eldest son of a large company.

Both the MC and the ML are not OP characters hence it makes up a more realistic and believable plot and that in my opinion is what makes the reading experience even better cause you can imagine how the situation was and what the MC's felt.

Overall it's a really good satisfying read with a rational plot, I would definitely recommend reading this. <<less

A fluffy light romance novel. There isn't really a downfall for the 'fake white lotus' original MC, but her outcome can be imagined since she no longer has a strong backer.

Felt a bit incomplete to me, but overall a decent read.

It should be noted that the translator splits each chapter into 4 parts.

The summary explains the novel well enough. Nothing unpredictable. The story isn't unenjoyable. There's plenty of face-slapping, but the FL only gets to do that through the ML's money and power. This would normally be fine, but the ML treats the whole thing like a job he has to do.

The system keeps blackmailing him with death if he doesn't treat his wife well. The ML is a cold, perfect, prideful silent type. So, he's plenty unlikeable. You get the feeling that he'll develop feelings for the FL eventuallty, but until... more>> then he's just a silent man forced into a marriage with a woman he doesn't really care about. All his acts of romantic love for his wife come off as simply begrudging things he has to do to not die. The FL is clueless about this, so she starts to develop feelings for the ML, but I honestly wish that she wouldn't because that would just give the ML more leverage over her.

I think the main problem is that without the system, the ML would never even think of treating his wife like she was his wife.

It might get better down the line and I see that it got a lot of 5 star ratings, but can't tolerate my dislike for the ML.

I want to give this story a 1 star rating just for the ML, but I would be lying if I said I didn't like the face-slapping. So, 3 stars. <<less

What I like about this novel is ML and his character development. Well he is already good but in terms of emotions due to system he did developed. If not for system ML would have been a bachelor for life or won't be having a romantic relationship as he is a workaholic so for him falling in love is like counting stars.. ... more>>
Spoiler

he is a rational person not like oriml. Even though he sees bad reputation of MC but still choose to believe what he sees. He isn't overbearing type rather he is possessive. Most funny is how system face slaps him everytime he says something to MC. Without system he would definitely be dead apart from that he wouldn't have fallen in love with MC as he would never have let MC approach him or any other girl.. he has due to his responsibilities didn't get to enjoy normal things of life. It can be said ML is the real MC of this novel as both system n FL are here for him...

MC and ML interactions are funny and fluffy. ML is actually adorable.

At end both tell each other their secrets. MC of transmigration and ML of doing things due to system.. so MC feels he doesn't love her but ML coaxes her and MC tells him he has to do everything again and he agrees.

At end ML gives up his life to protect MC even though it wasn't necessary but he drops task for saving MC which shows his love for MC and MC saves his life by sharing her life with him.

lol system came up with this idea other xiao a task would have failed.

Apart from little but antgst novel is fluffy and enjoyable

Well, overall, this novel is bunch of fluff! Love it. In my opinion, MC and ML are TSUNDERE.

I like the personality of MC and ML. The MC is NOT a weak minded person, she also thought before act. The ML is your usual CEO. But he didn't do anything to MC before he and MC confess to each other. He also helped MC a lot (like her scandal).

That's so funny when ML desperately fulfil his task so he didn't die! That's always made me laugh :D

I almost not gonna read this novel because of the reviews here.. But I try to read it and I like it!! Seriously the system is kinda like a shipper or CP fans. He always twist what the ML said. It's good that they don't have many heavy misunderstanding, even if they had It's easily resolved. The two of them already had interest to each other from the beginning. Slight interest.

oops meant to click two-stars bc I can see the effort TL out into this.

Very very boring however, unfortunately. I only laughed once, and never, like one commenter called it, went ‘KYAA’ over the cuteness/sweetness.

Mostly bc the first 60 chapters (half the fricking story yes ik) rubbed me the wrong way I guess, but still nothing that happened afterwards was particularly spectacular. I’ve read the raws and still their interactions didn’t seem natural and didn’t arouse any sort of feeling in me, rather I felt that the translators sort of... more>> beautified the story and made it seem better than it was.

instead of reading this I recommend ‘The Random Passerby I Married was the Richest Man’ (or something along the lines of that) , it’s more than a tier higher and better and the shameless couple has always made me laugh both out of incredulity at their (his) shameless retorts as well as because of how hilarious they are, and the romance is cute too!

both novels are similar in that both leads (ml&fl) have systems and at least one lead had been transported into a storybook world with systems that blackmail them into doing things, except this story’s system is just way too ruthless, what with always only letting ML have less than a day left to live. Feels more like torture at this point even if I know they’ve already fallen in love with one another.

mwiML has a rather nice premise to build on but I feel like author has done the execution rather weirdly. It may just be personal preference but I don’t like how flippity floppity MC acts, always complaining about ML and being obviously bitter about the things he did that weren’t even done willingly yet being so sympathetic all of a sudden whenever something happens to ML even tho she’s barely even known him for a few days. For real the execution just really sucks and is extremely unnatural to me after I’ve read so many amazing amazing novels. <<less

Overall, a good story if you have nothing to read. Simple and sweet (but it didn't make me go KYAA or dying of mad sugar. Its more of pleasant). Personally, it's not really my cup of tea.
Spoiler

It felt like the ML was angry all the time (based on the mtl) when he had to interact with the FL. I know it's because of the system, but I would've expected some progress like he started to enjoy it and felt fine following the system (killing 2 birds with one stone b/c it also involves of his life). It was more so like "no, I'm not doing it, I don't like you-triggered face- " but then forced to do so because it involves his life (which I totally understand.) But it was redundant all the way to nearly 10-15 chapters before it ends for some kind of progress. I didn't even feel/remember if there's a part where I thought, "oh he's starting to like her. He doesn't realize he likes her." It just happened, I found out suddenly like "since when?" despite the sugar moments. I don't know, I honestly don't remember vivid details of the romance progress (basically 90 chs bc it was that bland) besides the beginning and how they ended up together.

If you like this type of story, it would be a satisfying read.

There are not a lot of the face slapping of the white lotus, a couple of small misunderstandings that were solved pretty quickly, and no super hateful relatives. I also like that the ML and the MC fell in love with each other slowly.

I love it!
Rating: 4.5/5

Lessons:
* Never judge a person by other's perspective. See the person and judge for yourself.
* Not everything on the internet is true
* It is naive to think that you can survive without money
* With loads of money comes with great skills to keep loads of money

A lot of funny scenes, especially when ML's struggle to keep his tasks

What I especially love the most is the shift in perpective from the original novel vs the new novel. With the shift in focus between... more>> Shen Weiwei and Ji Qingqing with both perspective laid out for us to see. In truth, there is not much difference between the two of them, except that the Ji Qingqing was naive and easily used by others.

Likes:
I also felt especially elated when the new story constantly pointed out the sht story line of the old novel and how naive it is to think that love would conquer all. Afterall, in real life, there are many variables and that we shouldn't judge people who loves money because we never know what happened behind the scene to make them like that.

The character development is well paced for both of them. From cautious to trusting. I like all of the characters to be honest, well except for the gossip-mongers, but life of a celebrity I guess. Glad that original ML grew up as well, a pity that original FL learnt her heart a little too late. I don't hate original FL because I knew she had to do what she needed to do to get what she wants, but I never want to meet such a person. But the best character in this novel is hands-down, Grandpa Lu. I wish I had such a wise elder 😭.

The conflicts was resolved well.
Spoiler

Glad they told each other the truth! And I'm satisfied with how it was resolved and how quick the resolution was. He gave her space to think and acknowledged that her feelings were valid and then went to her as soon as possible to clear up everything, and she chose to compromise.

[collapse]

Dislike:

PDA!!!But that's the system's fault, so okay 😅

So many irrelevant but entitled netizens buzzing around the couple. Urgh! Must be hard to be a celebrity. <<less
