Rebirth to a Military Marriage: Good Morning Chief


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

Qiao Nan: Crap! I am your biological daughter, yet I am treated as if I was picked up from the streets. In fact, you treat me worse than that!

Mother Qiao: Qiao Nan, you are not as pretty or smart as your elder sister. You are not as blessed as her. You have no right to study, marry, or to have your happiness!

Qiao Nan: Why am I not allowed to study, marry, or to seek my happiness? I will find a man right now and marry him!

Qiao Nan is dumbstruck upon discovering that the man right beside her is a powerful figure in the quad—the person who has the most promising prospects to be the future Chief.

Qiao Nan stares at the well-built man in front of her. He has firm abs and cold, chilling eyes. She swallows the lump in her throat as she says her greetings, “Good Morning, Chief!”

Edited to add spoilers at the end.

The cover picture does it no favours, this reads more like a family drama instead of the light-hearted image shown. The title is based on a single throw-away line in an early chapter... and really, tells you nothing about the heavy drama in the story. It is not very lighthearted.

Not sure how good the story since there are so many chapters. But based on its early ability to elicit emotions, 4/5. To put it mildly, the more you read this story the more you... more>> feel the urge to beat the crap out of those who constantly abuse and accuse the female lead. Reading ahead 180 chapters in raws made me want to strangle the ridiculously biased mother and selfish sister as well as smacking some sense into the indecisive father (he made up his mind long ago but constantly stopped short of actually doing something).

This is a story of an unwanted younger daughter who kept being sacrificed by the resentful mother to advance the life of the less talented and flighty elder sister. She returned to the past and quickly decided to be more assertive and no longer be a doormat; her change of attitude and self-reliance was nice to see. You would keep feeling for her because she is a young teenager with no real way of doling out immediate payback: the best she could do is to ignore the mother and sister and hide behind the father until she can leave the house and be independent on her own.

Along the way she would help and be helped by people who regard her much better than her own mother; one of which is a mysterious and desirable iceberg type of powerful man (of course he is). He is years older but that doesn't stop his interest to groom her from the background, in a reserved kind of way (nothing pervy).

According to the infobar there are 2541 chapters and I can see why: it reads like an ongoing narrative; there are chapters describing the events of a single hospital visit, for example. Things keep happening to and around the female lead; if she kept a diary every page would be completely full.

Decent read to while away your time.

edit: about the length of the novel, heavy spoilers:

Also there are entire chapters where a dialogue is paused so that paragraphs of exposition explaining the background/personality/thought process/emotion going through the persons involved and for the conversation to only continue in the next chapter.


The story is very long because it goes into wide tangents and the relationships of almost everyone close to the FL. Her friends, her senior, her sister-in-law, a former love-rival... all of them are directly affected by her and rely on her for advice. So much so that the other half in each of those relationships are comically jealous by the importance their partner had for the FL. Then the story went further into her children's lives, from cute babies to post-grads. And lastly... just when everything seemed resolved and nothing else to the story could go on; the entire final third of the story is goddamn reset. The story began with the FL returning to the past as she lay broken on a hospital bed; the final third of the story have her 'waking up' from the beautiful dream... that she was indeed still on the hospital bed and the previous 1748 chapters we read was wiped away. Nothing had changed, it was all a dream. The nightmare scenario of her original timeline continued as it was. It might be tough to read on as we are given info on who did what all over again in this timeline. Everything the FL had 'gained' in the 'rebirth' had been lost and she was once again a 40 year old woman with little prospects. But rest assured, the FL once again quickly found her feet and rediscover her happiness in this 'real' timeline. For those curious, no, there is no going back to the 'dream' timeline. For better or for worse, you can stop reading at the awakening and not really miss anything; or actually start the novel from there. The author repeat "in that timeline this happened to this person, but in this timeline this happened instead" really quite often.

Conclusion: A good read, if you can avoid flipping the table at times.

Congratulations, this novel has done it—it has forced me to write my first (and probably only) review on NovelUpdates.

I'll say it outright: This novel left a bad taste in my mouth. Not because the story plot or writing was terrible. The kind of bad taste it left is the kind I feel after reading a tragedy. I'm so tempted to tag this with the 'tragedy' tag. However, please note that overall, this novel is NOT a tragedy and is actually pretty decently written. Please skip to the end for my... more>> overall thoughts on the story because I will be spoiling it heavily in the next part.


Are you sure you really want to know? It's major spoilers I kid you not.


Ok, fine, here goes. I'm currently at Chapter 1669 and the story has progressed to the point where the current arc is on the MC's children. She has triumphed over all the bad things in her past life and the major antagonists are no longer an issue. However, the total number of chapters is 2541, which means that I've only read two-thirds of the story. So I'm like wtf this story can't possibly go on like those Taiwanese dramas with thousands of episodes and move on to talk about her great-great-grandchildren, could it?

Being a curious baby, I went to peek at the later chapters and DUN DUN DUN.

The MC wakes up.

She f*cking wakes up.

Basically, everything that happened before was only a goddamn dream. She's still in her late thirties and her life is still as terrible as before she got into the car accident in the very beginning. My god I can't even—

*gets violent flashbacks of teachers in secondary school who warned us on the pain of death to not end our essays with "She woke up and it was a dream."*

Why, author, why? I feel so bloody cheated. More than that, I feel tremendous sadness for the MC that her life is still as shitty as ever.

The sadness you feel here is two-prong. First is sadness for the MC. Next is sadness for the side characters who are back to living their original lives or had their existence erased. After her 'rebirth', the MC plays key roles in numerous character's lives (including several characters that she would not have met in the original timeline) and changes their lives for a lot better. The MC's main impact on these characters would be on their marriages and life decisions but there is also a major character whose life she saved. All these have a butterfly effect on other areas of the story, e.g. The lives, death and health of the side characters' family members and the subsequent kids they have. After she wakes up, their life development goes back to zero. Characters remain trapped in terrible marriages and lives that the MC wasn't there to prevent. They don't end up with partners who truly love them. Lovable kids that we've read extensively about don't even exist because the MC wasn't there to help their parents get together. The key character—who is supposed to end up with her best friend—remains dead because the MC wasn't there to save him. Heck, her super supportive best friend's not even her best friend anymore because their lives don't cross in this original timeline.

It might not seem like a big deal when I say it like this but keep in mind that these side characters are people that the author has dedicated countless chapters to. Their thoughts and motivations have been laid out clearly and even if you still don't care that much about them, as long as you've been faithfully following the novel, it's inevitable to get a little invested in their stories. The 'it was a dream' plot twist is extremely cruel to not only these characters but also us readers. We've been led into thinking that their happily-ever-afters are concrete realities but it turns out that all these were simply what-ifs.

Going ahead, the MC will fix her life after waking and still ultimately end up with the ML. However, what was done to the side characters, or rather, what wasn't done to them cannot be fixed and this is what leaves the bad taste in my mouth.

Update as of Chapter 2080: It feels like none of the side characters will have an ending that measures up to the one in the dream : (
*cries* 真是阴差阳错 (They all missed true happiness by a hair due to the wrong circumstances.)

For people who can find beauty in tragedies, they might enjoy this story and find it inspiring how the MC was able to turn her life around without the deus ex machina of a rebirth.

For me, someone who all too acutely feel the melancholy of life every day, this story was a can of worms that I would've rather not opened. Even though I am able to appreciate tragic stories, I can't stomach how they linger and affect me emotionally long after I've read it.

Since I've started, I will continue reading to see how everything plays out.


Issues in spoiler aside, the book is written pretty well and the arcs are tied up satisfactorily. Certain loose ends that would've have been brushed over or ignored in another novel were all addressed by the author. There were numerous times when I wondered about specific points and the author addressed it immediately in the subsequent chapters. Kudos to the author for being able to do this since the numerous relationships and characters in this novel can get pretty complicated. One thing though, the author tends to repeat herself a lot. The way she rambles on is quite natural but it can become glaringly obvious as you read on.

As other reviewers mentioned, the plot is more of a melodrama instead of being super dog blood. This is a very realistic story with realistic characters. Most of them are not one-dimensionally good or bad, and everyone (except for key antagonists) has their own flaws/ good points. Oh, oh, oh, you know what was so fricking refreshing about the story? The MC actually has female FRIENDS who are not back-stabbing, lying, evil b*tches that she and us readers have to guard against the moment they appear in the story. Good female side characters are actually a thing here, hallelujah. I also really like the MC's personality after her rebirth. It's similar to the MCs in "Eight Treasures Trousseau" and "To Be A Virtuous Wife". She does not actively revenge on people and only wants to live out her life according to her own interest after her rebirth. However, this doesn't mean that she's a doormat. She will retaliate if people step on her tail. The changes in her thoughts and mentality as she ages is also written very naturally.

Overall, after you've jumped into this pit, "Rebirth to a Military Marriage" is a good novel for whittling time away but don't get too invested as it may come back to bite you. <<less

Read the latest so far on webnovel and it's really good. Yes she goes through hardships buts she's not easy to bully but also not emotional either. She was treated like crap and never let it down but her attitude never changed. She was smart enough to keep quiet in certain matters that benefitted her but was loud enough to get what she needed. What I like most was that in this story their not that unreasonable compared to other stories. The crappy mom and sister, had to be forcefully... more>> realistic, with situations. They knew that they were incapable and that not everything can possibly be in their favor from their own actions. This story also has a different starting point from other stories that I genuinely like. <<less

I started reading this novel from another website. So initially, I didnt really read the review section. If I had read the major spoiler, I would have dropped it. I was so shocked by the mentioned spoiler that I checked out the book in machine translations (Trust me, it is not enjoyable to read the chapters in that crappy english). The spoiler turned out to be true.. Wahhh..... more>>

Only consolation is that they show it like as if that dream is an actual life from another world. This kind of "She woke up from the coma and found it to be a dream" crap is very cruel to the readers as well as the some of the characters whose existence has been erased. Though the FL ends up with ML, what about the side characters who are living a miserable life. The author should have ended this novel with the happy ending that the FL got in the supposed "dream/another life". This after the dream stuff could have been a spin-off book separate from the original novel. That way, everyone would have been happy.


Thank God, I came across the spoiler when I have read only till chapter 891. I'm going to treat as if the book has ended at a particular point. The garbage that comes after that pivotal chapter will be excluded or treated as spin off. <<less

FYI, I'm on c97 and there's been no whiff of a marriage or romance in sight. Take your time reading this. ;)

If you know any unfair sibling situations you'll definitely feel for this story. Phew, some chapters had my heart beating so strongly with stress for the MC. She's a resilient lil' thing with a good temperament. Omg... we've only reached the end of her school year in the story; will there be 300 more chapters to go before she the aforementioned marriage to the Chief?

Edit: On c557 and... more>> still no marriage. <<less

So, I loved the story, I think the tag are not quite accurate but I would like to say that it's an emotional trip. I found myself crying much more than I expected also, ... more>>

because I red some spoilers I knew that the MC will wake up but I wasn't as disappointed that I thought I would be. It's sad that some characters are no longer part of the MC life but I think that if you see the "dream" as an alternate universe, I think it's possible to cope with the sadness.

Over all it's a good story with good characters. Also I wish that filial piety wasn't describe in that way, really, can make people explode with rage. <<less

I freaking loved this the entire time I was reading but I dropped it because of the major spoiler (SUPER major spoiler) ... more>>

that the entire thing is a dream and she wakes up from a coma back in her "first life"


This story freaking made me feel. I cried over how unfairly the mom and the sister treated Nan Nan and I just wanted to go into the story and knock some sense into her family so often. Zhu Baoguo and her had such a sweet relationship. Unlike the summary, it focuses on MC realizing how poorly her family treated her, avoiding the traps they set up for her, and working hard to give herself the happiness she really deserves. She's smart, works hard, and incredibly mature. She doesn't forgive her mom and her sister for what they've done, but she never tries to set up plots or manipulate situations against them to take revenge or satisfy herself. I admire her for how good of a person she is, as much as I would love for them to get slapped in the face with their misdeeds. Instead, every time they have misfortunes, it's because of they let people see their true colors.

At this point, I would have rated it a 5/5, but the spoiler really hurt my heart and made me knock off a star. I think it's totally unsatisfying and I could probably complain about it for ages had I gotten to the part in the novel itself. I'm actually dropping it at this point but I read the spoilers and I think if you want something realistic that will make you emotional this is really great. Nan Nan is incredibly strong girl I love her from the bottom of my heart.

(edit 8/18:) This webnovel is too good and I went back to it ;w; But every time I'm reading I can only think about the reason I dropped it and I get so sad. But it's really so good... this is my guilty pleasure webnovel :') <<less

An angel on the NU spoilers forum did arc summaries for the whole novel and now I feel like I completely read the entire novel without actually wading through 2.5k chapters worth of drama and shit. Needless to say I was really into this novel. I read the translations up until the 80 chapter mark and I really like it. MC wasn't op and didn't have some amazing cheat. She actually didn't have much advantage and had to work hard to get her life on track. Also ML didn't seem... more>> that bad. So off to the spoilers I went. And I'm glad I did because the amount of shameless family events, the never ending drama with the sister and other people was just so much. Even in summary form I thought it was tiring, let alone if I had actually read it in the novel. End thoughts: too much family drama, MC and ML, who are powerful in their own right, should have dealt with their shameless asses asap instead of giving them money and letting them constantly stir up trouble.

And the "it was all a dream" trope.... Was not expected and not very welcome. What was the point of reading like 2k worth of chapters to get to know and invest in these characters when in the end some will not even exist or have completely endings at the end of the story? When MC goes back to the original plot line after getting hit by the truck, the timeline completely changes so it seems kind of pointless.


Plus ML seemed pretty useless in both lifes in dealing with MC family despite being a great general /commander guy with lots of power so that was super disappointing. MC father was also disappointing. Basically everyone was disappointing. This novel was disappointing. <<less

Okay... so the synopsis is really misleading. I went into the novel thinking it was a brainless romcom, but it actually turned out to be a family melodrama. God, you just want to slap all the antagonists in there. They are completely shameless! Luckily, our FL is smart enough to counterattack the second time around. And no worries, she isn't OP and tackles her problems in a fairly realistic manner.

As for the romance, at this point, it's pretty much non-existent. Looks like it's going to be a slow burn, which... more>> I'm pretty happy about. The ML seems typical at first read, but I like the fact that he isn't overbearing. In fact, he's pretty sweet towards in the FL (only in the brotherly type way so far tho).

Edit. I have just found out some major news. Read at your own risk!!

AAAAAHHHH. I'm so pissed right now. Why use the "it was all a dream" trope at the end? Might as well just throw away all the previous chapters! This honestly just leaves a bitter taste. After using so much time and effort to develop the characters and the plot... I just want a simple happy ending damnit. Not a flippin unnecessary plot twist.
