Strongly Pampered Male Wife

Description

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

How long would a marriage be able to sustain itself when it had nothing to do with love? Then how would a marriage based merely on power and a monetary transaction be able to last?

The person in Shang Yushang’s embrace was his male wife. A temporary wife that was bought to get rid of bad luck. But ever since the moment he had this person in his arms, he decided not to let go of him.

He Changning obeyed his so-called family’s decision and married himself off. Thinking that, when this transaction was over, he can live his own life happily ever after. But, little did he know that he had just stepped into a big net filled with warmth that was specially woven for him, and that he would never have a chance to get out of it.

It's a pretty light sweet story, with the occasional face slaps, but nothing too heavy. MC is a calculating person, he can be so harsh to people who wish harm to him, yet he is also so nice to those who are good to him. I also like the fact that he can stand up for himself, and even help ML to solve his problems when he is able too.
ML is your usual puppy in love seme who would do anything for his wife (hence the title). My favorite... more>> type of ML really, so I might be a bit biased.
The dynamic of their relationship is pretty similiar with BMHS's couple, so if you like that, you'd like this too.

The pacing of the story is pretty nice too, it's short yet all problems are solved nicely. I have little complain about the story overall, but there are some things I do wish could be explored more:

Spoiler

MC's occupation: At the start the story makes it seems like a big deal, because it was the reason ML becomes interested in MC in the first place. But after the first few chapters, there is no further exploration of this. More often than not, it feels like MC doesn't even have any job.

Their twins: Um, this is a mpreg story btw. So, my other complain is the lack of additional chapters showing their children after they've grown up, heck even after they were born! But this is just a selfish wish of mine though, so yeah.

One of the fluffiest BL stories ever written. It's just too good. Thanks to the translator for picking up this story. Once I started, I couldn't stop until I finished it. MC is strong and cunning to those who wants to harm him and ML while ML is happy as long as his wife (MC) is happy.

Basically Insta love no matter how they try to package it. I was expecting them to become friends before slowly falling in love over their marriage year but the male lead is basically in love before they even meet and before you know it they're happily doing couple things despite the main character identifying as straight. (There's a brief period of resistance but it's so weak there's no point)

Spoiler

Didn’t they mentioned that Shang Yushang was a person who doesn’t fool around easily? Then why would this person hold his hand on the first meeting, hug him on the second meeting, and even kissed his forehead? And now he even began to give kisses, hugs and get touchy at times. Can anyone confirm if this man was indeed the legendary Young Master Shang? The gap between his character and image was simply too far apart!

Yes, I agree with you main character. A stretch indeed.

Characters are okay, plot is pretty predictable. All in all, rather bland but still a decent read as long as your expectations aren't high. <<less

There's only one chapter so far, so there's not a whole lot to go off of yet, but I really like this story so far. I already sympathize with the MC and don't like his worthless family. To save their own interests they sell off their son and then blame him for being heartless when he gets angry. Who wouldn't get angry when their family sells them for money just so they don't lose their business? Also the story is translated well!

It's kind of generic to me. The ML is a writer, which seems unoriginal and disjointed. At least if the guy was an assassin I'd have battles to look forward to. He's generally strong and irl would have a bit of a victim complex. His family is forcing him to be married for a year, but he's vowing to destroy them even though he could move out at any point. I just don't like what I've seen of him. Then there's the love interest who is totally captivated by this... more>> adult male who shows up to a dinner party wearing jeans and a t shirt because he's secretly a writer. This screams mary sue. <<less

The story focus on He Changning's family and His relationship to Shang Yushang (future husband).... There's also some revelations about He Changning's family background.

Spoiler

There is another BL couple in this story that will make you smile and laugh. I love them and I know you will love them too. 😂😍😘

Is light reading.

Pro

-A lot of fluff, many sweet moments
-Cute characters
-Easy plot to follow

Con

-Dumb villains
-Instant love although the MC didn't want the marriage at first
-A little predictable

Until ch35 there hasn't been a serious conflict, the ML shows off every time and the MC lets himself be pampered, so if you want a soft story with a dotting couple go ahead.

It's ok. Let's say it's a light read.

On the negative side: it's insta love from the ML. The MC say he isn't gay and don't want to be too touchy, but that get thrown to the dogs the following chapter as they kiss and act lovey-dovey.
The antagonists are not very well written, typical no brain Chinese vilains in order to face slap them easily.

Still, I've seen worse, you can try it if you want to read a fluffy BL story.

I was roped in by the mpreg tag. The first few chapters were really interesting, the MC was sassy and cunning, but it gets disappointing as the chapter goes.

I'm totally clueless as to how the MC that has kept his pure facade for seventeen whole years and had to fend for himself for five years turned into a completely spoiled little young master with no brain in front of the ML. He was just there for the ML to dote and show his gentle side to. When the author tried... more>> to show his 'oppressive' manner, I just can't help but see him as whining. Every single character from the ML side seemed to have some kind of sixth-sense to see through a person's personality as they keep praising the MC's good temperament and intelligence. Though the sixth-sense doesn't seem to be that accurate, as I can't find the MC being a smartass beside those in the first chapters.

The story narrated the ML as an expressionless and cold legendary buisnessman, and that's it. You would only see him being cold from the naeration and a few of the background character's monologue. The rest of the time he would be an old man in love.

And the cannon fodders are just plain hateful. I was kinda hoping the father would be the one normal person in the Yin family..

Spoiler

I keep on wishing and imagining throughout the story how great it would be if the ML would just be a black bellied white lotus, a wolf in a sheep skin. A story with the same plot where the ML is a character that is always smiling and scheming. And maybe make the ML to have known and kept watch over the MC for a long ime after he got his fortune read, as he is the purest Mu Yi Clan's men. There he would just observe quietly as the MC struggled through his life and seeing the MC capabilities and vulnerability he unconsciously fell for the MC. Just so I wouldn't be weirded out everytime the ML flirted with the MC.

And I would rather the MC to be a normal person with just decent IQ and strong character, where he might be able to fight the Yin's family, but he would be left with barely 10% chance to escape from the ML's grasp XD. In the one year of their marriage he would get swayed by the ML's pampering, though at the end he would be reminded of his own self-denial and goal, decided to cleanly cut off their marriage.

How great the conflict would it be, if after the MC painstakingly gather the conviction to tell the ML his decision about the marriage, the ML who had known all along that he wouldn't be able to keep the MC by his side told the MC that the MC is actually one month in pregnant, successfully tying the MC who isn't even aware that he could get pregnant to him. Thus, the reveal of the black tummy nature of the ML lololol

[collapse]

The story in itself is not that bad though, its mpreg afterall. You can read it in your free time, just don't expect to find satisfying face slapping and beautiful revenge by sassy MC. Moreover after the amazing summary and the incredible first few chapters. I still can't let it go help. The only thing you'd get is cute interractions between idiotically in-love couple. I believe the author has more surprise in store though, like the mysterious He family so it might turned out to be great later on. <<less

if you haven't read this type of plot before, go for it so you can get a taste, otherwise just skip it. it's very poorly done.

i saw "fluffy" in the reviews so I bit. in reality it was flat. the story is ooooooooooookay but the translation is meh and at times cringeworthy, so a flat story was made even flatter. if you read it, then read it with the expectation of a sub mediocre story line and character development with inconsistent logic and time gap strangeness. it's the kind you can MTL and not miss a single detail. in fact i'd rec just MTLing; you can breeze through it without fear of missing any good lines or important story points.

i know the guidelines say not to review the translator but the translation is the presentation of the story so it's an integral aspect that can't be divorced from it.

translation:

it's mostly ok. honestly it's on par with some good ESL stuff. there are the usual confusion between adjectives, verbs and their progressive tenses. you know the kind that happens when you edit a line to change the tense and feel of something, but then forget to align everything else with the new tense so it comes across garbled?

like this: it incorrectedly mixing and using the tenses.

you stumbled reading it didn't you? now imagine reading that kind of syntax every few sentences.

it doesn't happen all the time but it happens consistently enough to be distracting, so I don't think it's a mistake in the proofing process so much as just poor english. combine that with the uncommon english used, like this from the story here:

"But the precondition to that was if it doesn't concern my lifetime's happiness." [As long as it doesn't concern my happiness yes. If it does, then all bets are off.//honeslty i'd have been happy if all the tenses just matched up.]

or

"... captured everyone's expression..." [... noted everyone's expression...]

or

".. external grandfather..." [?? i've never seen that before.//maternal?].

the expressions are definitely intentional and not typos because they recur all over the place. the lines are understandable but the verbs aren't used in the common way (or even poetically) so it's awkward to read.

there's an editor, but the work provided by that person isn't worthy of being credited. the difference between the edited chapters and the unedited chapters were... not noticeable at all. the translator (ebisu translators) worked hard on it, s/he/they should just take all the credit. yeah, I know all my examples were critical, but there were plenty of proper and perfectly fine translations in the story, i'd say half of it overall. it's just that the poorly done lines were so consistently garish they stuck out in my mind and left the strongest impression. so if you want to judge, then read it for yourself, otherwise just take my word for it.

[collapse]

yeah so... mm... i'd rec reading beloved marriage in high society over this one. that one is also awkward but it's got "the feels." ;) <<less
