Even though the stepmom and stepsister are quite evil...I almost feel like the father lied to the stepmom, made her a bunch of promises, got her pregnant and never gave her any status. No wonder the step mother feels like she needs to kill the mother so she could finally take over as lady of the house. Need to give that spineless bastard a huge shove.

2 or 3. 2 is optional. Taking out those ants and roaches that dared harm my mother is first priority.

OH WAIT.

If it's not related to this story and we're talking about my real life..
    1. Then studying for real the next life is the priority.

    2. And then try hunting for a job harder this time so my mom can live fine.

The concubines can either be chosen by the family head or the elders (?) of the family, if they so choose. Or if they think that the 2nd Wife and her connections might become beneficial to the family's future. The legal wife (First Wife) usually has no say in who is to be married in.

Also, Mistress = unmarried, and thus shameful, while Concubine = married, and somewhat low in status, but not so bad. Interestingly, the First Wife is the only one married into the house via Front Door/Gates with festivities, while it was considered proper for concubines to have a subdued marriage without pomp, and they were entered through the residence's back door. The power imbalance is strong. ๐Ÿ˜”

All the wealth/support is given to the Family Head (Father, usually) instead of the wives. It's each for her own, except for the husband, who is provided everything. The wives are nearly just living contracts, unless they married for love, which is honestly sad. ๐Ÿ˜ž Sorry for rambling, tho.

@astrologia wait, wait. mistress was legal and could have more than one, but there is one thing I think I am confused with. it was provided for the wife... hmm That is kind of confusing because it makes me think that a wife could get a concubine too if the husband did or are you trying to say that the concubine would need to support the wife with wealth too? to get the wife's power in the house.

Just saying tho: Sis needs to break her mum out of that self-imposed state of disbelief. Smack her with the hard truth and irrefutable evidence that her husband is a lying dolt, the woman she invited into her house is a viper, and the viper's child is an actual Devil's Egg.

Yes, concubinage was legal in Ancient China, but they also provided that among wives, the legal wife should be given the most importance. Dude's been showing his bias since Day One. The First Wife shouldn't be content to remain blind, ffs. At least grow a backbone.

On the other hand, love how Jiuqing is holding out against her half-sister, her dad, and stepmum! Props to sis! Also looking forward to seeing developments between her and ML!

@Chuepomi right! everyone hates the aunt (me included) but the dad is such an useless and unloyal assh#le. i know having concubines was quite normal, but he clearly loves the side more than the main. he better be a beggar at the end of this lol

I'm really hoping she somehow ruins her father and takes her mother to live with the ML, the dad deserves a little comeuppance too.
Good chapter, I'm excited to see if/how ML steps in to stop JQ from being matched with her terrible (past life) fiance~
