The Life After Marrying My Sworn Enemy


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

The cousin isn’t called Biao Ge. He has his own name. His name is Cheng Jinyu. From the phrase—– Wo Jin Huai Yu (to hold and cherish a beautiful jade; a person with good moral values), it’s the name his father gave him.

But Chen Yuze calls him Biao Ge, so Biao Ge became his name.

Biao Ge has a sworn enemy, his name is Gu Bokai. Biao Ge doesn’t know how he provoked this person. He detested himself very much. Like being disgusted with sh*t in a garbage can.

However one day Biao Ge was told to marry Gu Bokai. As for the reason, because Biao Ge’s life is hard!

Gu Bo Kai has married three times and now has three dead wives…

Gu Bo Kai: No, absolutely not!

Mother Gu: First cry, second stir up trouble, third hang oneself (throwing a temper tantrum). Continue to get married, or I die and let you see.

Gu Bo Kai: Why?

Mother Gu: He is tough, can avoid being killed by you and can also have children.

(Shou and Gong have no kinship. Biao Ge is what others call this person. It’s like a name)

So far there has been few likeable characters.

  • MC is prejudiced and assumes that everyone wants to treat him as tr*sh, especially those who actually treat him well. He comes off as ungrateful and annoying, but that could be excused by his unfortunate past of hardship and abuse. He is characterized as self-sacrificing because he clings to his abusers, when in fact it should be said he is suicidal. He needs a therapist to learn some self-respect.
  • ML is a tsundere rich boy who never matured past the preschool-style of tugging your crush's pigtails to show affection. He wants to pamper MC but has a talent of looking like a jerk while doing so.
  • MC's adoptive family take him for granted and only exist to show how self-sacrifing MC is by not running away from them the first chance he got.
  • Tan Liyun is your typical villain stepmother: evil, cruel, and will definitely get face-slapped.
  • Chen Yuze is ignorant, naive, and childish. He knows nothing and doesn't understand what's happening just like a toddler, except he's an adult.
  • MC's parent Yiqing is actually a saint from the legends who ascended into a higher plane of existence after wilting away from lost love and leaving his son behind because why would a child need a parent?
  • ML's family are actual nice human beings and the only good people in this story. They are happy for and supportive of ML and MC.

This is a slow-crawling burn of a love story 1/5 of the chapters in, full of misunderstandings caused by MC, ml, and mc's parents not communicating. The real villain here is lack of conversation and empathy between the characters.

I agree with another reviewer that called this a soap opera. People keep a lot of secrets from each other and make silly decisions to thicken that drama. The author is very transparent about this, so a seasoned reader may have trouble immersing themselves fully. That said, despite how tasteless the story can be, it was a strangely fun read. It's like a soap opera you don't exactly like but want to know the ending of.

It's not exactly an award-winning novel, but it's a passable quick read. The plot is... more>> straightforward and very cut and dry. It is purely focused on MC advancing in life with a pitiful background and (a ridiculous) series of misunderstandings. It lacks the emotional and structural complexity of my favourite novels and this limitation extends to the personalities and development of characters too. The dynamic and history of the main couple is a bit chaotic and has no real chemistry to me. The transformation of feelings does take some of the frustration out of the start of the novel, but ultimately I wish there had been more patience and care in the depiction of the characters. The love interest's personality felt messy and so did the main character's at times.

There are some things about the plot that were kind of mentioned at the beginning then NEVER heard of again until the very end, so certain points felt unnecessary.

Reading this wasn't so much a wild ride as it was a slightly bumpy one. <<less

This novel is somewhat like a daily saop opera. MC is a selfless and self sacrificing person. He enters the marriage contract for paying his debts. MC and ML doesn't like each other at first and eventually falls in love. There is not much misunderstanding between them and their relationship development is pretty smooth. ML is very sweet to him once their relationship progresses.

MC is paying a huge debt for his adoptive mother's surgery. His father actually gave a lot of money to that family to take care of his son before he died. But they spent all the money and he had to drop out of school to support his adoptive family. Even though the mother says she is sorry for him all she tries to do is mooch off him. Even in her death bed she makes him promise to buy a house for her son and daughter. Only the younger brother is the sane one in that family. The mother just cries, says sorry and asks for something and again cries.

I just finished reading this novel (using MTL) and all I can say is that this novel left me speechless.

IT IS SO GOOD that I'm hoping for more.

Although there are heart-wrenching parts, the sweeeeet and cuuuute moments balance it all.

This novel really pulled the string in my heart (≧▽≦)

This novel is tooo shorrtt~! But it worth to read and MTL is somewhat can be understood. Feel free to try the MTL- world. This novel is about Cheng Jinyu ... more>>

who have never been called by his real name, works at rich people house (Chen House) for 10 years. He works here to pay for his foster mother medicine expenses. He has been treated badly in his aunt house, kneeling on the floor, begging for money, got kicked and pretty much think he is no lesser than a dog. One day, his foster mother's illness relapse and she need an immediate operation. MC ask to his aunt to lend money but his aunt proposes him to married ML. ML who has married 3 times and all his wife died, rumoured being cursed. According to a priest, ML gonna suffer this curse and until all 4 of his wife died, and can eventually be happy and stay together with the fifth wife. (I don't know how to explain this.. hahaha). The aunt's son, Chen YuZe like ML and she know about this, she wanted MC to be the fourth wife and when he died, ML can safely get married to his son. This is the condition she gave to MC if he wants to borrow money. ML hated MC and so does MC to him.


But the truth is ML liked MC before, he even confesses to MC during their high school, but he got brutally rejected by MC.


The story is too short I didn't see their babiess~

and worth to read. Just give it a try. <<less

The best thing about this novel is its short length.

The MC becomes a Gary Stu once he leaves his aunt's clutches. ML is a total sweetheart. ML is such a tsundere.

MC has a horrible family. Both real and adopted. The foster brother is the only decent person. The "uncle" is a scum too. He sees the aunt abusing MC as a child but does nothing.

... more>> The ending is kinda rushed. I liked the way MC's cousin decided to leave everything behind. The aunt should have suffered more. What a horrible woman.

The first few chapters need serious editing. It gets better later on.

Overall, an ok read. <<less

I wanted to give this novel five stars or at least four. But I took out one star for the rushed ending and another star for flat villain characters with plot holes.

... more>>

The ill interest Chen Yuze had in Cheng Jinyu was without a proper cause. Readers can understand why Tan Linyu (?) hates the MC. But Chen Yuze was raised like a little prince. That kind of person should be busy with caring about his own life, having fun and not secretly hating someone lower than himself. We can only chalk it up to his mother influencing him.

It was very funny how Tan Linyu dropped many stones on her own foot.

* She spent over 1 million yuan to force Cheng Jinyu to marry Gu Bokai.

* She wanted to scheme against MC and made his sister a no name celebrity. But it only made Mother Cheng (MC's burden) to die earlier. MC is now free from family obligations. What was she even trying to achieve?

* She received heads-up about her husband summoning a lawyer but didn't manage to create big waves even after finding lawyers of her own. The properties under HER name were easily snatched back without her knowledge. When her husband broke the news to her, she was like (@_@) /

The way Father Chen treated Chen Yuze was also a bit too excessive. He certainly was not a good father to Chen Yuze. I can't blame Chen Yuze for breaking off ties with him.

Jiang guy (Clothing company CEO) was also weird. Even after last chapter, readers didn't get to know what he was thinking. Did he secretly feel overwhelmed by Gu Bokai and tried to beat him in love game? Or does he genuinely love Chen Yuze? Or will he regret his actions in the future? I think the author originally wanted him to chase after Cheng Jinyu but they needed to wrap up the story so they just forcefully gave Chen Yuze a happy ending.

This novel is basically the type of brainless fun with too much drama you get when you watch novelas, except it's bl.

Plotwise, it's very shabby and filled with holes, but at least the drama is consistent.

The MC had a very good start, but then his development stagnated from the middle to the end. To be honest, the ML barely shows up, he's there more like a vase.

Overall I think its 3.5/5 but I'm rounding it to 4

My IQ really went down a few points after reading this.

It's not terrible, but definitely not something that has a good plot or good storytelling. There is a lot of drama, as with many BLs, but it doesn't seem organic. The drama is the plot, the plot is the drama, and nothing makes sense.

In a nutshell (a cheeky summary of the whole story) :

... more>>

CJY got treated like dirt by his not-an-aunt aunt, who does not acknowledge him. He is then forced to marry a guy GBK who supposedly hates him, but actually loves him, in order to pay for his ill foster mother's surgery. CJY is also supposed to pave the way for his not-a-cousin cousin by marrying GBK. Then he miraculously becomes a shrewd businessman even though he has not completed high school and has zero work experience, apart from licking aunt's shoes for n years. Then sh*t hits the fan, everyone finds out about everything, his dad turns out to be his mom (cause his dad got pregnant even though this is not an ABO world, or xuanhuan/xanxia, which means now CJY can also get pregnant cause he inherited the "pregnancy gene" from his dad, I mean mom) and the sperm donor turns out to be aunt's husband. Then they all live in eternal happiness. Foster mom dies, aunt is in eternal coma.


Saving grace is that it's short, so you can finish the entire thing in a few hours. Also, translation is good. <<less

It starts off confusing, because of the four guys with five names, it's just a rush of characters. Eventually it dulks down to two adults who didn't get along romantically married to each other. The male lead is a Chad, and the MC is an incel, if you looked at the diagram of a Chad vs incel. I don't know if they're enemies, so much as they've mutually agreed to some sort of rivalry for some reason. The MC is also a hs dropout servant who is nearly a million... more>> in debt and the ML is a company president. <<less

Zero romance, the plot was TSTL (yes the plot was To. S*upid. To. Live), and it ends abruptly

... more>>

Turns out MCs uncle is his father and his father is his mother and his father/mother’s sister, seduced her brother’s boyfriend and got pregnant so his father/mother disappeared because his boyfriend cheated on him and didn’t let anyone know he was pregnant, too. (But we don’t find this out until the last 3 chapters)

The Uncle/Father married the Aunt. Uncle/Father never forgot his first love (father/mother) and never lived with the Aunt/evil stepmother and ignored their son

MCs father/mother died and his foster mother embezzled his inheritance and then got sick so he dropped out of high school and went to work for his father/mother’s sister, who treated him like a s*ave (seriously, she made him lick her shoes and kneel at her feet), just so he can take care of the woman who made him poor and her 2 children

In the meantime a man who fell in love with MC while he was in Jr High treats him like dirt because MC forgot him (hereafter known as ML). ML has a marriage curse that he will be married 4 times and his wives will die on the wedding day

The Foster Mother needs another operation and medicine, so MC asks the evil step-mother/Aunt for another loan (making him owe more than $1 million to her) and she forces MC to marry ML as the 4th wife to stop the curse so her son can marry ML as the 5th wife and live Happily Ever After

MC agrees to marriage for money

ML agrees to the marriage cuz he really loves MC and they get married and treat each other like dirt and then for some ungodly reason they have s*x (consensual) and afterwards MC starts to love him back and they decide to get revenge on everyone who has abused MC


And then the plot goes downhill from there (don’t ask), until, for some reason it ends with a plane leaving contrails in the sky

After typing all this, 2 stars may be generous. I cannot recommend <<less

It shouldn't have named 'The life After Marrying My Sworn Enemy' because it gives vibe of a romantic plot.

But it is not romantic at all.

It's more about MC turning from servent to businessman.

Plot : 2.5/5

Romance : 0.5/5

Characters abusing MC : 10/5

MC being exploited by his adopted family : 8/5

No development is shown between MC and ML.

If they could have shown healing of MC instead of just abuse.

Maybe it doesn't deserve a 5stars but the overall rating is so low I feel I should push it up a bit.

It's really not a bad story at all, the MC is honestly a treasure. I like how the story doesn't shy away from painting gray pictures of people (or at least trying to) to express how complicated relationships can be. Honestly though, the mother is still way too much that I just can't.

I feel like halfway through the story lost a lot of its original charm though. In the... more>> beginning, it really showed the struggles and ugliness MC faced. It had some troupes but it didn't feel like it was going down the "drama everywhere but unrealistic characters and picture perfect ending" path (although it had some angst, I thought it was gonna be solved more "realistically). For example, I thought that Jiang guy had a brain at first. CYZ also had sooo much potential but then he just became so troupe-y black lotus (and same to almost all the other characters too). Also, the author forced a "actually ML was in love with MC from the beginning" even though that was obviously not the case.

But anyway, it's still not a bad story, I'd say at least 4stars. Even though I wanted to jump in the screen to beat people up lmao. Thanks to the translator for their hard work!

Edit: I REALLY wanna lower at least a star for the super rushed and "prettily wrapped" ending, but again I feel like overall rating should probably still be higher so I wont. But honestly I hate this ending, enemies suddenly wake up, side characters totally change to suit the happy ending for everyone, loose ends are so shoddily tied up it's ridiculous. But I feel like the author had some reason so they needed to cut the story quickly... sigh. It's really a pity.

Translator did a great job though. Thanks for the hard work of the translating team! <<less

Nice story I just hope it is longer.

The MC is such a selfless person who will do anything for his family though they are not related by blood. I feel sad for him since he is working as a s*ave but deep inside he is such a confident person. ML is a tsundre. At first I dont like him but he has reasons for hating the MC.

... more>>

ML liked MC since MC is in junior high, then confessed in highschool but was rejected. It hurts ML so much but what he his is angry cause MC forgot about him


Im happy about the ending though I hope there are more MC and ML moments than drama. I also hope there is an extra story for the cousin.


I feel sad for the cousin cause his father never loved him. I hope he will get a happy ending with his friend who loved him for a long time

If you love the novel called Reborn as My Love Rival's Wife; you will love this novel, too. The reason I give it a 4 star its because around ch20 is about Cheng Jinyu life. The story is getting slow for the new love between them. Gu Bokai is a rich guy and author make him seem busy with his huge company. Cheng Jinyu misunderstood Gu Bokai. He thought Gu Bokai does not like him and think this marriage is a fake. Gu Bokai is very serious with Cheng Jinyu.... more>> He tried to win him over. He is his wife. He do anything. <<less

The romance was lackluster and the adoptive family take MC for granted. Evil Anty is really a pain as well as that younger sister. Yuze didn’t deserve the ice cold attitude his father gave him. And ML family are the real MVP of the story even if they don’t show up much. Overall it was entertaining 4.5/5

What a crazy, wild ride. It did get me hooked enough to the point of finishing the novel, but feel the writing was all over the place. I guess I kept reading on because I wasn't yet satisfied? Ending was unfortunately underwhelming.

Overall dramatically dramatic. MC and ML's interactions were at the bare minimum, and the plot behind why ML pursued MC was really cliche.. But I'm a sucker for tsundere MLs. MC's quite likeable in that he's headstrong, confident though I don't understand why he was still willing to become... more>> a doormat for others. Particularly, his foster mum, his sister and his cousin. The whole time I'm just clenching my teeth as I read on. I think the story would've been better if it was fleshed out a bit more, and we get to see more development with the main couple. Would've liked to see both MC and ML as they improve their relationship.

Reading this felt like I was looking at someone's draft as opposed to a published novel, but I'd still give it a 4-star cuz it kept me entertained enough to finish it. <<less
