    My wife is a psychic

    2 - Jiang Xin has transmigrated into ancient times into the body of a girl raised in a peasant family in a small village. The original body was engaged 3 times and 3 times her fiancee's found another woman and broke off their engagement. She tried to commit suicied 3 times and the beam she hung herself on in 3 different houses all broke. During her final attempt she died and her body was possessed by MC.

    MC lived has an extreme amount of luck and is extremely favoured by the gods. When her family kept trying to take advantage of her she pretended to be mentally ill and was sent to a mental hospital. Though she is somewhat coocoo as well. She quickly became the leader of the hospital. Everyone including the director was afraid of her and listened to her. Whatever she says will come true and people who try to act against her have a bad ending.

    At first sight it seemed that Jiang Xi was treated well by her family, but soon we notice that her mother favoured her son Jiang Si in everything. She also helps her maternal family a lot. Jiang Si is a scholar and everything in their family has to make way to let him learn and pay for his expenses. The money she has been paid after her fiancees broke off their engagements has been spent on getting her eldest brother a wife and Jiang Si.

    Her eldest brother's wife hasn't been able to conceive and he is spending a lot of money on medicine to change that. She is pretty timid and treats MC well. Her youngest brother Jiang Shan supports MC unconditionally in everything.

    Jiang Si meets Zhao Ruifeng, a general who is the opposite of her. He has extremely bad luck. 7 of his fiancees have died after their engagement was announced. The emperor won't even let him enter the room he is in in the palace. They have to talk from 2 different rooms. Zhao Ruifeng's mother died young because of a woman his father raised outside. The woman came to their house and his mother couldn't take it and died. ML was sent away by his father because he wouldn't accept his father marrying this woman. His father is a real womanizer and now has about 26 (?) woman. The eldest daugter of his new stepmother has been brought up learning the ways of the palace and she is expected to marry the crown prince.

    She meets Jiang Xi and decides to convince the crown prince to let her marry Zhao Ruifeng. Jiang Xi keeps the stuff she gets from the emperor and her fiancee and won't let her family take any of it anymore. She gets a huge pig from the mountains to guard her and her things. Jiang Xi is made village head on her demand. When a disastral winter arrives she is prepared for it. 

    Her future sister-in-law Zhao Yingying (only full sister of ML)has had a dream about her precious life where MC died. In that life her brother died a few years later, Jiang Si blackmailed MC's ex-fiancees and became the number 1 scholar in their province. Zhao Yingying was forced to marry Jiang Si and had a miserable life. She first had been treated badly by her stepmother and then by her husband and mother-in-law. In the end Jiang Si burned her to death while she was pregnant. She warned Jiang Xi about a disastral winter coming, so Jiang Xi is prepared. She forbid the villagers to sell their food and put a stone at the entrance of their village which will make women pregnant. Because of this a lkt of women including her eldest sister-in-law became pregnant. Even the robbers who came to their town became pregnant. She also took the robbers and homeless people in and their town was the only one that grew in size while they were cut off from the rest of the world. 

    Jiang Xi goes to the capital with her fiancee to get married. The empress doesn't like her. She knows that the crown prince played with her when she was little and liked her. They mad her believe that ML's halfsister was the one he played with when he was young. 

    On the day she gets married ML's halfsister also got married with the emperor (she seduced him instead of the crown prince). There are signs that the world is celebrating (animals letting themselves die in front of their home to offer food, etc. Everyone believes that this is because of the halfsister until proven otherwise. Birds start to poop on her etc when she wants to leave the home before MC arrives. 

    The empress is very angry when she marries the emperor. She switched her baby when it was born because her baby was a girl. Everyone expected her to have a boy because the signs said the baby would bring extreme luck to their country. She thought halfsister was her child and wanter her to marry the crown prince to continue the bloodline. She thinks the emperor is comitting a great sin. Signs start to appear that their country is losing their prosperity. 

    They send ML to guard the border though he has only been married a few days.

    Halfsister gets pregnant with a twin. 

    The crown prince finds out MC was his childhood friend and and wants her to divorce and marry him. She refuses. When children start to die and it seems that someone is making sacrifices to increase their luck, MC is accused and imprisoned along with the rest of the Zhao family. 

    Several inmates from the mental hospital in her previous life has also transmigrated along with MC. 2 of them (one is the emperor's concubine), decide to punish the crown prince in revenge. When the crown prince doesn't wake up frommhis dreams of being with MC and his body is deteriorating, the empress gives her blood causing him to die right after because their blood types don't match. Because of this the emperor finds out this is not his son. The empress tells him she switched her child, making the emperor believe he has children with his own daughter. He is devastated and doesn't knkw what to do.

    ML's halfsister gives birth to children who are deformed. She decides to execute MC and the Zhao family. During the execution the heavens react and a phoenix arrives who starts to harm halfsister, making everyone believe the Zhao family is innocent. 

    During the following discussions the emperor arrives. It turns out MC is his daughter. And halfsister is having twins of Jiang Si, who turns out to be her brother. She cuckolded the emperor. The Jiang families' daughter was stolen when she was young and Jiang Shan found MC around the same time in the snow and brought her home. His mother was very angry with Jiang Shan and let her family mistreat him, making him ill and causing him to become dull. He was very intelligent before that. 

    The emperor had a twin brother. The twinbrother was raised as the crown prince though he was 2nd born (the empress switched them because the 2nd son looked stronger). The other prince was raised in the cold palace. However this prince was very mature and intelligent and the crown prince wss very playful. He found out about his twinbrother and started to switch with him, letting him go to classes while he left and played. When their father found out about that, the real eldest prince (now emperor) convinced everyone he was the crown prince because he knew about his school lessons, etc. The other prince was convicted to death but managed to escape. He maimed his face to make himself unrecognizable and plotted with ML's stepmother to take the throne. He tried to rob MC's town during the winter and taken in by her and followed her to the capital. He is executed.

    Halfsister dies and babies are brought to Jiang Si.

    Everyone in the cabinet wants MC to become the empress right away. The emperor is very sad about that. He has been doing his best for years, but everyone wants him to step down asap. MC becomes empress. Jiang Si fails his exams in the capital because of MC.

    His mother has been sleeping with young men while her husband stayed in the village and has become pregnant. She starts to bleed when she hears about Jiang Si failing his exams. Jiang Si starts to hit her to make her lose her baby and kills her. 

    ML is kidnapped by the saint of a neighbouring country. She wants to marry him to increase her luck. Apparently saints in their country don't live long and have to marry someone with very bad luck to increase their luck. MC decides to travel there to find ML. Turns out the saintess is the director of the mental hospital from her previous life (was male previously). She begs for forgiveness. When MC sees ML again he faints and is declared dead. When a few days later they want to cremate him, the heavens send out rain. At the same time MC is delivering her babies. She gets triplets, 1 boy and 2 girls. When the last girl is born, ML wakes up. He has been sleeping this whole time. He has a condition where he regularly looks dead when he sleeps. He turns out to be a famous actor in MC's previous life who was in love with MC. He also had very bad luck then. She also liked him.

    Suddenly we find out that MC was also pregnant with triplets in her previous life. We also suddenly find out a warlock stole MC's luck.

    One of MC's mental patients invented time travel in her previous life. She sends MC, ML and her children back to her previous life. Their bodies still exist there. They have been lying in a hospital in a coma for 3 years. MC's body is in the morgue. While she was in a coma her children were delivered and raised by ML's parents. They were dull and their family didn't really like them.

    When the children get near MC their intelligence comes back. MC helps a kidnapped child and meets their family. The child's grandmother takes her in as her godchild. It is not said but implied that this is her real mother and the Jiang family kidnapped her when she was a baby. They held her prisoner in the first 15 years of her life and let her bring them good luck. 

    ML, MC and children are back together. MC's luck seems to be back. The end.

    The story was alright. Don't have to read it again. It read like a slapstick or cartoon. The end was very messy. A lot of new things that were never mentioned before are suddenly introduced. An actress pretends that ML's children are hers. She is questioned when MC's body disappears from the morgue (she happened to be there at that time) and doesn't appear again. We don't find out who the warlock was who stole MC's luck. It is never confirmed that the Yang family is her real family. We don't know if MC and her family go back to the past. She became empress and immediately left to find ML and then went back to her previous life. What was the use of becoming empress? 

    Her luck is greatly exaggerated. For example it is mentioned that when an airplane she was in was about to crash lots of birds came to support the airplane and carry it to the ground. This seems rather impossible and if she's really that lucky would an airplane even start to crash?

    A short part of what one of the mental patients says about MC.

    "You have to study hard so that you can serve Boss Jiang Xi better in the future. Although you're s*upid and a little dimwitted, you've been reincarnated in a good family and become boss's brother. You have to serve Boss Jiang Xi with a grateful heart. When Jiang Xi is standing, you can't sit. When Jiang Xi eats, you have to serve her. When Jiang Xi sleeps, you have to keep an eye on our family. Jiang Xi is the center of everything. Jiang Xi is the heaven, Jiang Xi is the earth, and Jiang Xi is the only God!” Song Yun lectured Jiang Si with a serious expression."
