Strict Wife of the ’70s Manages the Household


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

Lin Lan woke up and transmigrated into a shrewish wife who drank pesticides. The original owner ruined her husband’s promising future, and all five of her children became villains in the end.

Her in-laws are biased. The uncles and aunts are insatiable. She has five bear children and a cold-faced husband to take care of. . .

Lin Lan: Trying to take my money? We’ve already separated. I’ll take it back!

My husband dares to run wild? I’ll teach him to be a new man!

It’s difficult to discipline wild children? That is due to the lack of love! Shower them with love!

What’s the matter with that cold-faced man?

as shown in the tags, this is a slice of life novel.

I love how the MC doesn't have a golden finger but has skill, high iq and high eq but not too domineering like they own the world.

ML is not too ceo type or domineering type.. just military type.. but still the classic doting ML type.. and I still love it.

i also like the kiddos in this novel and their character growth. its rare for me to like kiddos in these kind of novels because they are usually portrayed as... more>> too perfect. here they grew to become better and better from being losers. this novel shows how great people are not born to be one but made to be one..

although there may be lapses like the scenes suddenly jumping to another, its fine since you can easily catch up and its not a big loss since its just a slice of life.

overall... I rate this novel 5 <<less

This is heart warming.

It is a pure Slice of Life story without mary sue, child swap or strange CEOs.. Most of the story revolves about the growth of their family and their children.

My only complaint is the character of the ML.

It has a great ending and I wish there were extras for her sons since we got to know her daughter's ending.

The story is good. I do feel bad for the original Lin Lan because she was a very abused and abandoned woman, her husband did not care for her daily life while they were married beyond having s*x with her the few times they were together and she had to go through 4 pregnacies on her own while living with an absolutely awful family. No wonder she was so unstable and while taking it out on her own children is not excusable, it can be understood up to a point.

Just what I'm looking for, pure Slice of Life story without mary sue, child swap or strange CEOs.

I reading MTL but the story is interesting, it might have some problems and strange at some points but still funny and not boring to read at least this what I feel about the part I read.

... more>>

Somehow I feel that the author made ML personality somewhat missed up, he looks too cold with low EQ but holds a relatively high position that requires high EQ. the writer also made him ONLY affectionate to the MC which is a little.. mm.. yeah I agree with the previous review, it's a little too much to make his feelings dead and only shows up if its about the MC.

another problem is self centered view point (if I used the correct words) which is a common problem with almost all the CN novels I read, people act strange when it comes to the MC and as long as it's something the MC does or is in favor of him/her it's right even if it's wrong and if it's against the MC it's wrong even if it's right. This novel didn't go too far like some others but it's still annoying for me sometimes

personally I feel that the ending was too sudden and the extra chapters were somewhat ruched and could have been done better, I also wish the novel was longer and has more chapters, sigh...


PS. - Don't expect OP characters, cheats (golden finger), supernatural events (except transmigration and rebirth) or pointless face slapping all the time (there is face slapping but it's logical and in place)

-there are some common traits of that era that might make some readers uncomfortable (including me sometimes) <<less

Is that supposed to be a male lead? I'm so tired of these stories specifically ones with the the protagonist transmigrate or reincarnates into this terrible household where she's labeled as a shrew- when everybody knows that it's their fault why she's become the way that she is!

This male lead is terrible, the husband knew what was going on in this household even before he came back- he knew what she had to deal with everyday and he didn't do anything about it and wants to think "oh she's different, now I can do something like growing a pair of f*cking balls" (and even then he hasn't done jack sh*t).

You KNOW you are a man in these misogynistic times.... Sincerely hope he chokes. Dropped it. Disgusting asf.

A useless man. Cowardly. But then the author wants to try and portray him as some 'nice' level-headed cool 'cold' guy...??? Gtfo of here with that bs.

I will always hate male leads that create and fuel the circumstances that create a 'shrew' woman and then act like it has nothing to do with them. The female lead just ignores this. I would divorce him no matter what.

So excited!!!

2021.05.26 Finished chapter 3, and I like how the characters are developing so far. They aren't flat and passive. I will update my review as the story progresses.

    • FL is presented as someone who is scared of children and how icky they can be. Relatable. Hopefully she will not be OP and flawless to the point that it is boring.
    • ML's perspective is included early on so there is somewhat of an active role on his part to return home. Let's hope he isn't a silent, passive, work grunt who only knows how to boink boink.
    • The children seem to have their own personalities, roles, and contribution to saving their family. They seem to be more than just hungry, dirty, and helpless bear cubs.

The story is heart warming. There are only clashes in the beginning and the Han family are seldom mentioned. Most of the story revolves about the growth of their family and their children.

My only complaint is the character of the ML, his feelings are dead and it only shows up if its about Linlan.

All in all, its a good read.

In love with this story. In love with how the entire story progresses. In love with how the characters interact with each other. Very reasonable plot as well. The transmigrator does not instantly fell in love with her instant children, and it took years I believe to bridge the gap between the mother and the child she'd practically abandoned before. And the gradual way that the characters came to love each other? Gosh I'm in love. In love with how she educated her children, in love with how she came... more>> to love all of them, and in love with how she accepted and love other people into her family as well. I'm just in love with this story as a whole.

I mtl-ed this story and it's quite understandable. There are like 40% that don't really make sense in every chapter given the mtl, but this story is worth my headache. Will certainly read the translation again later. <<less

What an awesome read and definitely recommend it. I mtled the whole thing and it was about 80% readable and understandable.

Give this novel a try and you will definitely not regret. I have read other books of this genre like Back to the 60s, Bai fu mei among others and this is hands down my favorite and the best (IMO).

Great ending and I wish there were extras for her sons since we got to know her daughter's ending.

I really liked this story, initially I have not much expectation for some reviews here, but I decided read it anyway and I don't regret it, the story for me was amazing, funny, hearty and full of so many advice that actually are very useful.

All 5 kids stole my heart, the author could've do an extra for for Da wang and the rest of the kids with their family in the present, and Shen Yu and Yan Yan.
