    Ohh i see!! .... So the son went against the royal family lol (since he took a concubine and went against the crown prince ...) How old was he when his father married his dead wife's sister?

    Also do we know what happened to the daughter that married far away and was unhappy?

    The other daughter sounds smarter since she avoided the good for nothing dude they wanted her to be with ( it must have been hard!)

    The son never successfully take any concubine, his father wouldn’t allow it. His father banned all cousins from visiting his estate until princess get pregnant. This led to him resenting the princess and treated her coldly which got her brother real mad. He was probably in his teens ( his father started planning his marriage after MC’s first child was born so he should be around 15-16 at the time and his mother died before the new emperor ascended the theone) when his mother died so he idolise her and transfer this feeling to the concubine ( very misguided feelings, his father said so himself that his mother already told him to not be do close to her family, even she can tell they are greedy)
    The sister that married far away trusted the concubine and choose this husband almost immediately after her marriage she started to see the concubine’s bad side. The other potential husband that new main wife choose for her ended up marrying HuaLan’s daughter and were a very loving couple with lots of children.
    The other daughter was smarter she always wondered why auntie would make them cry about their dead mother in-front of her memorial (not letting her rest in peace) and why auntie always said that she and her siblings are enough for her and she doesn’t need her pwn children but she would always see new doctors for more remedies to get pregnant. She even said openly that “our mother is a wonderful person, but what does that have to do with auntie.”
    She and her husband had a very cute relationship, they got iff on the wrong foot (a fight at school) and was very in love. The way she describes it “in front of other people I’m the wife who worships her husband, in our room he can’t talk back to me”.

    Ohh i see!!! ....the brother shouldn't have married her in the first place if he knew they weren't to be trusted (at least he seemed not to make her pregnant )

    What was the concubine's reaction when the second daughter didn't accept the marriage to the good for nothing young master ?

    Also did MC went to visit the house a lot ?(since the wife was her friend ) ...did they meet ?

    Reading about this family situation really pisses me off for some reason, I’m especially pissed off at the empress and her brother, even if they want to repay the dead wife what does it have to do with her sister? They should be focusing on the children instead and not let the sister walk all over the new wife and overstep her status as concubine. I feel really sorry for the main wife.

    He didn’t not let her be pregnant, she had a miscarriage once and tried to blame it on her sisters children ( saving him from drowning, it was implied she set the whole thing up). But her body became weak.
    The concubine tried to tell her husband that the daughter and her nephew were in love, saying how they loved yo play together. The daughter was present at the time and directly said she despises him. The concubine tried to get the older daughter to convince her saying “think of our mother, we need to take care of her family”, but the little daughter just said, “ why don’t you marry him?”
    And MC visit new wife alot during her pregnancy. The children refer to MC as auntie Gu, since ML and the queen’s brother were close friends. The little daughter mention envying Rong’er because of how warm MC is,( new main wife was a very proud and strict person, not even close to her own daughters) so the families were probably close.
    Funny story, after main wife’s son was born MC was pregnant with second child and they were considering an arranged marriage.

    They totally regret it later, the new main wife’s children all turned out well (queen’s brothers loves her sons who took after him).

    MC and ML both used the children to get him to let go of the wife’s family. The daughters in particular, since they are di daughters if are raised by a concubine with a bad reputation then no one would want to marry them. The queen had to help with the oldest daughter’s marriage and the little daughter found her own husband.

    When they tried to find a marriage for the son, almost everyone avoided them (every good choice) because the whole city knew of the concubine and how the son treat her like a mother ( what decent lady would want to acknowledge a concubine as a mother in law). Thats why they decided on Princess thinking the son and the concubine wouldn’t dare to be out of line. They were wrong, the son tried to get princess to kneel to the concubine and treat her like a legal mother in law. (Usually princess aren’t even required to do that to a real legal mother in law)
    Princess is a di daughter of the emperor, the queen’s daughter, so also his cousin.

    Thank you so much <33333

    Did the oldest daughter get a divorce from her first marriage? (The one the concubine arranged for her)

    The concubine must have disliked MC a lot xDD

    The eldest daughter married a wang ye so that means he would have a lot of legal concubine (all from good family and high status) she left with him to his area and their fate is unknown.
    The concubine tried to befriend MC, acting like a legal wife whenever MC visit and refer to her as sister. MC told her directly that a concubine isn’t worthy of calling another resident’s legal wife sister since concubines are half a servant. MC gave her some advice about the rules within big families and reputation, but she didn’t listen and hated MC.

    Married her cousin, moderately happy.
    When she got married, HuaLan’s evil mother in law tried to take HL’s dowry land to give to her as her own dowry. But the whole family said no since taking your daughter in laws dowry is shame on the family. HL’s mother in law already took more then half of HL’s dowry through out the years and their family has a bad reputation in the city. YEY knew this and told her mother not too.

    At one point the ML, GTY also says that if General Shen (the empress's brother) wanted to repay his first wife then he should have found her sister a good marriage, not marry her as a concubine. But because he wanted to repay the first wife AND advance his carrier the whole mess of favoring the concubine over the wife was created.
