This Male Was Forced To Support His Family


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

Gu Yu, the infamous male insect of a certain insect tribe,

His lifelong dream was to be a lazy and idle rice-eating insect.

At the age of twenty, he married the youngest general in the empire, Lu Chen.

After five years of marriage, his dream came true, and he became the biggest freeloading male insect in the insect tribe.

While his female partner took care of the family by going to the battlefield, he lay at home, eating and playing, doing nothing.

This peaceful and beautiful life continued until one day…

His female partner returned from the battlefield, but he was heavily injured and paralyzed in both legs, forcing him to retire from the military.

In other words, the pillar of his family became unemployed!

The Male Insect Protection Association knocked on his door and said, “Respected male insect, we are deeply sorry for the misfortune that has befallen your female partner.”

“But for the sake of your happiness in the second half of your life, we suggest that you immediately marry several wealthy and influential female attendants to take care of yourself.”

“This is a long list of female insects who are eager to sign up…”

Gu Yu glanced at his poverty-stricken kitchen and sighed deeply.

It seems…

He had to go out to work and shoulder the responsibility of supporting the family!

And then, the freeloading male insect accidentally joined the military,

Accidentally became the imperial marshal,

And accidentally subverted the common perception of all insects, rewriting the history of the insect tribe.

Female insects: That male insect who does nothing but freeload at home and eat soft rice every day!

Main focus, 1v1, happily ever after.

A story about a freeloading insect striving to support the family and accidentally becoming an imperial marshal. Slow progress, daily sweet interactions.

The injured legs of the bottom will definitely recover in the end.

Both partners are clean, and there won’t be any offspring.

Liked it a lot from the start, but was really disappointed in the end.

It seems like I have to sympathise with the main antagonist and pity them, but I feel nothing, except for disgust.

I also dislike the way author added dog blood drama to the story. The rushed ending was not worth it at all.

Happy for everyone who liked it, though.

Not your typical story of reformation. It doesn't include transmigration as stated in the synopsis.

Love the personalities of the characters especially the bond between the MC and his female.

This is one of the best newest different Zerg novels I’ve read. Females are the primary providers and men are the rice bugs who are the primary parent/breeder. There are only a few males which are in small supply, but big demand. Everything is catered to the male Zerg’s comfort. However, our MC & ML (the female Marshal) are a heavenly pair in love who refuse to be separated. Following an “accident”, the Marshal is injured, disabled, and possibly sterile now, so our MC is deemed as eligible to... more>> be single & the “male Zerg/basically omega association” wants him to become a baby making machine with the next best genetic material - by force if necessary. So, our lazy MC leaves the nest to try to find a job to pay the bills, becomes the newest Marshal, fights for the rights of his self-chosen spouse, and so forth. Exceptionally loving relationship with the ML. I highly recommend this one. Enjoy. <<less

This novel really hits all my sweet spots. The synopsis may make it seems like it all fluff but damn sis there's actually hidden daggers.

... more>>

it related to the another side cp. It's so painful that I'm still trying to heal myself. Their story is a depiction of how life wuld have otherwise turned out for the main cp, if circumstances didn't favour them. GOD DAMMIT THIS IS TOO PAINFUL.


I hope the translation for this could be completed. This novel is really a precious find.

I just started reading, but I'm in love with this novel! I love that MC is not transmigrated from somewhere - he lived in that world from birth and was taught this male-centric point of view, but he still decided that he doesn't want to treat his partner that way. Even though he never really saw an example of a healthy relationship, he still managed to understand how it should look like.

From the synopsis, I tho this would be fluffy, OP, and brainless novel Zerg romance in military, , where the male accidentally join the military, ,

But I was wrong, ,

I am now only in chapter 41 and I already feel many emotions such as their love, sadness, grief, struggle, and optimism, , I am speechless, ,

This Zerg novel has stricter world organization toward male and female relationship, , and I can feel the seriousness of the situation where Gu Yu strive to only have Lu Chen in... more>> his life, ,

Least, I feel really blessed that I can find this novel, , I am blessed 😊😊😊

Chapter 80

Some little stories of the side characters only introduced with a few paragraphs but if u don't want to fall in despair just stop at reading not thinking


1. The love story between Randall and Meng Liu and Gu Xiu

2. Tragic past of Yin and Fu

One of the best I've read! The appropriate amount of Smut and sweetness, adventure and slice of life. All this elements are given at the right portions. And damn the ML is one of the best out there, raise in a male oriented society that prefer polygamy but he still insisted on only loving the FL and staying true to her!! Hot damn! Very impressive. I mean the amount of love the two leads have toward each other r very touching, basically these two Zerg are crazily in love with... more>> each other.

Both of the leads relationship are so nice and loving with just the right amount of possessiveness that make it so GOOD, feel sad for the female of the Zerg society in general though, cause most male r so disgusting but there r some good ones out there.

Kinda dun understand the logic in Zerg novel in general in the term that even female r say to be the majority but why r most of them quite submissive to their male. Cause in most case majority wins. I mean y bother having a male in the first place, cause if u r that strong why not live freely and not find problem (male) for oneself. Rather Zerg r survivor of the fittest species, y not the strong get the male and they became the female exclusive canary? With how strong Zerg female r I am surprise y it didnt develop that way, would'nt Zerg society that develop that way be more realistic? Noted: just my musing about the Zerg novel society in general <<less

It’s a very good story - the ending is kinda rushed but I really love Gu Yu and Lu Chen’s characters, specially their dynamics - Moore and Bud I also have soft spots for them, but the MC and ML are simply too good a couple to ignore lol. The premise and writing of the story are also very good, and unique in the execution, plus the story doesn’t have much stalling or illogical plots - in fact, it has just the right amount of foreshadowing to get you at... more>> the edge of the seat.

That said, the ending is quite rushed - and maybe that’s something on the author’s ending that made the plot have to rush so much, but even so it still feels believable. And, if you’re like me and noticed all these hints beforehand, you’ll see exactly where’s going.

The MTL is readable and not much clunky, but the translation is particularly good so I’d recommend to wait for it because the quality improves a lot. <<less

After reading this book I have to say I have very complicated feelings about it. It was really great book starting with fluff and the going deep and becoming way more serious in the end. Let me caution you this book has very big bomb planted in the story and even though you might be able to detect it like me, it might still blow you away in the end. The writer takes some issues related to Zerg world created for this genre of stories and make a really relatable... more>> story out of it, we may be human being but it does not stop you from being able to relate to at least one of the characters in this story. <<less
