Unable to Divorce After Signing the Marriage Contract


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

Lin You He excelled in everything – his looks and accomplishments were all top notch, but he was very dense in the emotional department that made people feel frustrated.

Even if a marriage contract fell from the sky, he would not feel anything. All he knew was to remember his identity and fulfill the contract.

On the day of the wedding, he was still apologizing for his friends’ teasing.

“I’m sorry Mr. Lu, they don’t know the situation, so I hope you don’t mind……”

The other party lowered his eyes to look at him, “I don’t mind.”

Lin Yu He felt relieved, as he thought that the rumors were wrong and that the other party was not as insensitive as he was rumored to be.

Until that night, he did not manage to get any sleep.

The next day, Lin Yu He braced his sore legs and asked in a voice that was hoarse from crying, “Let me confirm again, we will divorce after the contract is over, right? The kind of mission last night only needs to be done once, right?”

The man who was about to reach out to help him massage his waist narrowed his eyes, his voice was low and his words curt: “No divorce, no stopping it.”

Lin Yu He: “……”

He looked at the man whose gaze was obscure, and finally had a change from his usual dullness, keenly perceiving the looming danger: “How about we talk about the divorce first……”

The next second, he was pinched at the back of his neck.

“Ning Ning.”

The man called him by his nickname, and his breath invading all his senses.

“You didn’t even look at me that seriously when we got married.”

“Also, last night wasn’t a mission.”

It's a really beautiful novel (and easy to MTL). The ML is very possessive toward out MC, but he hides it (at least until after the marriage, lol). The MC is completely lacking emotions when it comes to love. He is a med student with a minor in psychology, so he is aware of human anatomy and feelings, but he is mostly unaware of and indifferent to anything emotional due to his extensive neglect by his family and a trauma he had experienced in the past. But he is not... more>> timid, shy, or unable to do things.

In fact, the ML lets him solve his family problems on his own and just watches him, standing by to help him if asked, and to comfort him after, because he knows the MC can do it. As times passe, our seemingly soft MC becomes a strong guy who can stand shoulder to shoulder with the ML without thinking he doesn't deserve him. <<less

Plot is cliche.

basically arrange marriage between powerful gong and pitiful shu except gong actually like shu from before


The overall theme of the novel is cold, bright and vivid lighting, but depressing. The novel itself is full of fluff but the psychological tension/drama (?) is apparent throughout the novel.

However the novel itself is not suffocating and basically a light read. It focuses more on self healing.

When reading this, what I felt was calmness. We're reading from MCs pov and he is most of the time calm and indifferent.

The first part of the book gives a dreary world filled with snow feeling but the later part is like welcoming spring and summer.

A contractual marriage story which also touches on resolving the knot in MC's heart. A decent read to pass the time.

... more>>

The whole story should've revolve around resolving MC's trauma but I was distracted by their kisses. A kiss here, a kiss there - the typical set of overbearing president's practice. I didn't like the ML. The stalking part is excusable to protect MC but the way he got MC to be intimate with him feels shady. And what's with all the groping and leaving marks on MC while MC is asleep? His actions are all too greasy for my taste. Remind you, there's a 10 years age gap and economical gap. He's the one holding the power in the relationship. But seeing that it's published years ago, it's understandable. That's the trend then.

If he could be more honest with MC, the story wouldn't have dragged till 100 chapters. So yes, I'm complaining about the author's ability. It could've been a truly heartfelt story instead of this. On the other hand, I love it when the ML realises that MC doesn't like him, he's only fulfilling his tasks. Hahaha. Aside from that, I also love MC's indifference towards his father. That's a pathetic father tbh.

Solid 4 stars.

At first I read it because it is something that I could just skim through for a few hours. It had the cliché of the "arranged marriage of the unfavored child". Another trope is the MC has high IQ but low EQ. Another is the trope of the overbearing CEO ML.

Man, was I wrong.

... more>> About the leads

The MC, Lin Yu He, has great IQ (honor student in medicine) but the extent of his IQ is shown throughout the whole novel. You should read it to find out but it is a cause of great relief and distress.

Here is my opinion regarding his "low eq". I think that he knows sincerity, gratitude. He is self-aware, even to a fault and doesn't have emotional outburst or emotionally deficit. He is good to his friends and avoids people with bad intentions. What he doesn' t understand is affection and care for himself specifically.

Regarding the ML, Lu Nan. He's fine if a tad overprotective. Maybe people will be turned off by him but I can really see his affection for Lin Yu He.

Then what is the story about?:

As said by a previous reviewer, it is a story revolving around self-healing of MC's trauma's. It has a lot to do with his mother, who has passed away, and his family's treatment of him. Here we learn that

MC has an intersection with the ML, Lu Nan in the past


I love the step by step process in which the MC learns to love himself.

Regarding the supporting characters, I really appreciated here is how they have a time to shine. There are some callbacks to supporting characters we meet and even get to know more some of them.

Basically recommended it for a warm writing. It isn't groundbreaking writing but there is a lot of heart here. <<less

Ahhh!! Like it a lot.

It's more of healing and sweet text. Not much of family drama. At first MC was quite indifferent but later on the progress was good between ML and MC. Though I cried 😭 a lot when I read about MC and ML past. But still it was good.

Highly recommend. Lots Of Love ❤.

It's a fluffy sweet story. Earlier chapters were good until the marriage lmao.

Is it something I want to read again? NOPE

There were so many couple's relationship matter, of how they tried to understand how to live as couple. Of MC to try to heal his mental wound, and tried to understand what love is actually.

Each families issue actually played a big part in MC's life and for ML's business, but too bad the author didnot elaborate more on them. Most frustratingly was how the author provided too little explanation of... more>> MC's father and step mother's pov/narration. I didnot know what's exactly MC's father feeling toward MC and what's his label for the reader to call, a scum father or a weak father??

All I read was sweet moments of couple without any indication of reaching to deal the problems the author presented at earlier chapters. Then the auhtor introduced new characters in the 15 last chapters, it felt like 'Ah, I couldnt write another sweet chapter, then let's invented new character', while ignoring old characters that could be written more instead. <<less

On the surface, this novel appears to be another one of those timid shou x calm older gong novels. And I'm not saying it isn't, but there's more to the novel than that.

Despite the somewhat comedic tone set by the synopsis, there isn't much comedy to be found. Instead, this is a transformational bildungsroman based off of the novel's traumatized and emotionally stunted MC. Through his marriage to the supportive ML, MC learns to grow both as an individual and as a lover.

The beginning of the novel is wrought with... more>> psychological and philosophical dilemmas that plague MC, while the latter half is more fluffy.

I recommend this read if you're looking for a novel that is a little more substantive where the protagonists experience emotions other than love or lust. <<less

MTL'd and it was doable.

I can't like the MC's personality.. Too wishy-washy, meek, pushover vibes. Feels like he'll just stand there like a wallflower for ML to fawn over. Not my type I guess.

It's actually kinda obvious that ML must've known MC prior to their engagement and that definitely demotivated me to read further.. I wanted, or I guess expected a good plot twist or something but at the rate where I'm going with this novel it just feels really stale.

MC just nods and is a 'yes' man to whatever... more>> happens around him, I wish he had a backbone and more personality. But maybe this type of character is to someone else's tastes.

It also would've been better if both MC and ML had an indifferent meeting or something (and gradually move towards simultaneously understanding each other) rather than it being one-sided with ML making the effort to start the conversation, pamper the MC and what not. It's like watching a dad take care of a son. It was hard to read. <<less

It’s what you would expect from the summary. I would recommend it to someone who enjoys this type of story.

Personally, I don’t like the ML much. He created this idea of a contract marriage with MC— for potentially justifiable reasons, since MC’s stepmother was trying to marry him off anyway— but uses the contract to pressure the MC into engaging in various behaviors (kissing, sleeping together, s*x, etc.) that the MC wouldn’t have agreed to otherwise. At the same time, he gets annoyed about MC treating the marriage purely like... more>> a contract, despite reinforcing that behavior. Otherwise ML is your typical “overbearing president”-type character.

MC’s terrible family was more interesting than you usually see in these stories. MC’s father loves him, but not enough to actually make sure the MC was doing ok emotionally. He doesn’t notice that the MC has completely disconnected from the family on an emotional level until MC is about to get married.

The evil step mother character treats MC badly, but she’s smart enough not to be completely over the top about it. She mostly dislikes the MC on principle, but doesn’t actually find the MC personally objectionable. For example, she apparently paid for the MC’s expensive throat surgery (presumably for her husband’s benefit more than anything), but held it over MC’s head that she did so.

There was a weird xenophobic line in one chapter about non-Chinese doctors being unkind, but I assume most regular readers of CN web novels are used to that sort of thing.

I wouldn’t recommend it to readers who have an issue with age gaps in relationships, since that aspect is played up.

Overall, it’s not too bad. <<less

Pretty cute so far. MC is your typical beautiful, oblivious little cutie shou who needs to be saved by the attractive but very cold CEO gong who is only sweet to the shou. Will see if there's more development but I'm going into this knowing and expecting a cliche.
