Huh, i have a feeling that happened for me as well. Or not, maybe i just haven't followed it yet, hmm...

My bet's on misunderstanding. Letters and photos are probably from the meddling relatives, and, for all we know, dad might not be even interested in remarrying.

The fix is for Yae to marry the dad.

@Kaarme From what I saw in the chapter, he entered his father's room to look for something else, scattered some papers and accidentally caught a glimpse of the word "matchmaking" while picking them up... Sure, he shouldn't have went through them afterwards, but I don't think anyone would have been able to hold back in that situation, you'd be compelled to read more if it looked like your father was planning to find your potential new mother.
I'll give you that, he acted too brashly when he mentioned it to his father, behaving like a teenager, indeed, but he is only 14, and they didn't have such a nice relationship to begin with.

@Nightlilygirl- It couldn't have been helped if he accidentally read a few words, but he dug up the papers and read all of it. Dude's on quite a high horse to accuse his old man of lying when he himself sneaks into another person's room and reads their letters. Before any judge, Zen's crime (figuratively speaking) would be heavier. Then again, he's still a child. But he should think about things a little after calming down.

Whether something is understandable or not doesn't really matter. If your neighbour annoys you for years on purpose, it would be understandable if you went and killed him. It still wouldn't be okay, though.

It's the most likely case and I addressed the possibility of it wasn't a business. Either way, it's manipulative, presumptuous and insensitive to say the least.

This doesn't add up, I'm sure there's some sort of misunderstanding going on, but in any case I trust this series to resolve things nicely and without dragging out more than necessary, as usual.

@Kaarme didn't he just stumble on those paper by accident though? I'd say his actions are pretty understandable.

@oichifan39 me too, she's just so cute with her hair down!

Apropos of nothing I love Yae's hair

@Yautja well, but you’re assuming that is whoever wrote that letter is someone from a matchmaking site / agency.

Taking in consideration how the letter is wrote, starting from the fact that the writer seems to know his late wife Shizuku, or the fact that he/she seems concerned about Zen, I’m assuming that is someone close to them (his parents, a close friend, or what else) that discussed the matter with Zen’s dad.
That’s why I was talking about “giving advice” in my previous post.

Nooooo, damn you, plot! Not again, go back from where you came from!

It's not very polite to go into someone else's room and read their private letters. Zen is really a brat still. Maybe he would need a mother to grow up decently, with the father away from home so much.

I'm pretty sure they're like 14.

Ehhh no way!! Aren't Zen-kun and Yae around 15? They were in their second year of middle school when the manga started, and it's been a year since then. The 16 year old is probably Chloe!

Don't know and don't care. I'm not in the matchmaking business and it's not relevant to my point.

Bullshit. Also a straw-man. I said nothing about having a mother figure being good or bad and that fact is not relevant to what I was saying. I said saying "Use our service, think about your kid that we totally care about, get married because it's good for your kidand we make money out of it and you're young and your wife has been dead long enough." is entirely manipulative. Even if he wanted to get married, attempting to convince him by justifying it as a benefit for his kid is manipulative. The line literally means "doing this is probably good for your kid" ergo "not doing this is probably bad for your kid". It's the same shit politicians do whenever an issue that benefits them comes up: "Think about the children!". Odds are neither of them give a fuck about the children. To make matters worse, these assholes said "Quite a lot of time has passed since your wife's death". Fuck them. No matter who that is, it is not their place to say that. "It's been long enough". That's manipulation.

It's a letter from (I assume) a matchmaking business. Assuming a business is trying to help you is something relegated to morons. Even if it was from an individual, it became manipulative the second he brought the kid into it, not to mention his fucking dead wife. Either way, it's ignorance on the scale of maliciousness or simple maliciousness.

In their twenties up to thirty? "Because you're still young"? "Kids at Zen-kun's age"? I have a feeling these are old letters, from five or six years ago.

@Yautja what they should have said? “We hope you remarry because you’re still young - and don’t care about Zen, you have to think only for yourself”?

There is nothing manipulative at all, saying that a new motherly figure can be good for the boy is not a lie, just stating a possibility that he should take into consideration.

At this point all I see is someone giving advice and try to help (I mean, how can they know about the friend acting a little as “mother”?) , if there is malicious intent we’ll see later...

Called it.

And shit, they're 16? Hoped they would be younger...

Plot twist: the matchmaking is for Zen and they're assuming he has his father's taste. The meeting is to make sure the dad approves.
