What is My Happy Marriage about?
My Happy Marriage follows the life and love story of Miyo Saimori. The story takes place in the 19th-century Meiji Restoration era. Miyo despite being born into a prominent family with supernal abilities, doesn’t have any supernatural talent. After her mother dies, his father marries his sweetheart and discards Miyo. She is then forced into an existence of servitude by her abusive stepmother and stepsister.
Miyo dreams to leave the Saimori household when she comes of marriageable age, hoping for a better life. However, she discovers that her father has betrothed her to Kiyoka Kudo, a young commander who is cold and apparently had many would-be brides fleeing from him within three days of their engagements.
Unable to return home, Miyo accepts her fate but later learns that her pale and handsome future husband is anything but the monster she had anticipated him to be. Both of them realize that the other might be their best chance at finding true love and happiness as they slowly begin to open their hearts to one another.
