Sickly? Husband’s Contractual Wife


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

I’m Selena, a daughter born to a family well-known for their fertile women. I was sold off in a marriage to a sickly duke whose life hung in the balance, for the sake of producing an heir of his family. They provided me a medicine purported to aid in pregnancy, and the astrologist even advised me about good days to sleep together, but…there was no child.

“So, are there any signs of pregnancy?”

“Ah, I-I’m sorry.”

“You’re useless. What luck do you think won you the position of the duke’s wife?”

I couldn’t say a word.

‘No, excuse me. I only have to look at the sky to pluck a star. That’s how I attained this position.’


A husband who doesn’t like touching me in the least.

But he’s still pitiful so let’s at least make him healthy by feeding him nutritious food, getting him to exercise, and I’ll personally test any doubtful food first. Once he recovers from my extensive efforts, I’ll sign an annulment paper and flee, but…

“You agreed to a contract to bear me an heir. But to think you would go back on your words…”

Although he’s in good health now, my “former” husband has become a bit too healthy.

“You’re healthy now!”

“The duties of marriage are sacred. I will collect my dues.”

“Wait. Wait! But we’re divorced? We’re no longer husband and wife…”

He smirked then took a piece of paper from his breast pocket and tossed it to me.

“We aren’t divorced yet.”

I’m liking this and I like the slow progress and flashbacks....


I’ve read on spoiler forum that divorce part is around Ch 60 or so. And that not much happens before but I like how slow this is and that we see how much she suffered in the past.

there is also the mystery on who was behind MLs death in previous life

The story is captivating and makes every character realististic, they are not just mere characters. As story goes by everyone's secrets reveal and this mystery continues.
So, It increases the depth of plot and is very exciting. I like Main leads cuz both of them have been victims and suffered a lot, but stayed strong and special in their own way.
As the story unfolds, they find more about each other, understand and, help each other better.
through this process, they fall in love. They are both smart but sweet individuals and their interactions are Sweet.
I love the translation, it's so easy to understand. Thank you sm, dear translator and editor.
Please update more cuz I'm here waiting for them.

Good luck.

Lots of mysteries! You will get frustrated with the misunderstandings between the FL and ML. I take off a star cause the Duke is an as*hole who doesn't know how to emphasize with others, but I feel like that'll be part of his character development (still pisses me off tho). Also, a lot of people in the earlier chapters are asking 'wHy DoEsn'T ShE JuSt TeLl HIm' it's part of the contract ya dumbasses, she would have to pay a shitton if she tells him about it and she doesn't... more>> have any guarantee that he would help her with anything (for good reason, a lot of the time he's telling her off and screaming at her to get out).

The reason why I'm reviewing this is to tell the future readers to not listen to the other reviewers;

the Duke doesn't know that she intends to divorce him until ch. 62-63 (on mystical series translations), and even then he doesn't know why she wants to divorce him and thinks it's because of alimony. The description dialogue has not happened yet and the romance is only starting.

I was really quick to judge on this novel, since it moves on such a frustrating slow pace... but it's a mystery novel, with a lot of secrets to be unraveled. And I think the author was leaning more towards portraying the characters as humanely as possible.
Novels tend to have this fictional tendencies where emotions are quickly developed, but in reality, as we know, humans we are not very trusting of one another. Contrary to that, we slowly try to form a bond of trust. So I enjoyed This read.

there's a lot of hot love making with steamy scenes. Their relationship (ML + FL) will develop for the best. Mysteries will come into light. You're witnessing some Sherlock Homes gente here. The ML will become a man you wish existed. LOL. Dazzling like the sun in the eyes of readers. it does get amazingly better. It's such a rollercoaster ride if you stick around for the plot twists.


anyways~ stick around and you won't be disappointed.

I'm liking this one a lot! Definitely invested in their relationship, Amoide is a very interesting character and I'm rooting for our FL to nurse him to health and melt his little frozen heart. It's great that she isn't totally "oh I don't give a damn and will do whatever it takes if it guarantees my survival" but instead actually cares about him while trying to save her neck

  • So far it's been a 10/10 for me (*˘︶˘*).。*♡

I like it. Now it makes me wanna read more, such a cliffhanger 🥲

The story was entertaining with the right amount of mystery to pique my interest. FL and ML were alright, it was an easy read so far.

Will come back once there's more chapter 😁

Quite an enjoyable story, a bit tedious, though.

After a while, you get the feeling you're moving nowhere. All you hear is the mother-in-law pushing onto the MC to get pregnant, Amoide being Amoide and all the staff sus.

It takes a lot of time for anything to happen but the actions of the MC aren't really bothersome so it's a relaxing reading.


Prologue should be happening in ch51

This is a really interesting novel..I came here after reading the manhwa. Even though it is slow paced the mystery it brings along makes it worth reading. It doesn't have any of those unnecessary dramas. I love it !!!
