The husband's only "sin" was marrying a Lesbian. It's not really his fault, that he didn't notice as heteronormative life can blind people to the plainly obvious.

Perhaps, he believes that his wife doesn't enjoy sex because of his own failings (which he would never admit to).

There is also the fact that Yukako didn't peg to the fact that SHE is a Lesbian. She kind of dreads her husband's touch. She's trained herself to react to him, to please him, but the charade is starting to break down.

I think Yukako needs a reckoning. Her cheating on her husband isn't fair to him. Her dragging Chinami into it isn't fair to her. Yukako was the one who broke their relationship off, so she could be "normal." Now, she regrets it.

There needs to be a lot more truth-telling and a lot less sneaking around. I also get the feeling that Chinami is not at all happy about being "The Other Woman."

This is fantasy since I know of a few happily married couples who's wives have girl lovers for decades. This is drama for the sake of nothing.

This has serious "Run away with me, Girl" vibes, except if Maki had a spine and was kind of vengeful.

I actually felt really bad for the husband until the sixth page, and to be honest, I still kinda do, I mean fuck his wife is literally NTRing him behind his back lol, although I guess some aspects of it are also kind of his fault, seems like a pretty shitty stressed out dude overall. I can already tell this series is gonna be a fucking rollercoaster.

Yeah I'm very rarely a fan of cheating in stories, but I always appreciate the efforts of the scanners/translators. It's often thankless work and takes a lot of time.

I'm always amused by tags on this site. "Het on page 19 and 20" as a tag as if some sort of trigger warning...

It's almost like tags also serve to enable people to avoid things they don't want to see

Since I love Shimura Takako, I wish someone would continue the translation.

There's up to chapter 20 out there, but I only found Chinese translations. Not even the raws.

My Japanese is already not that good (but I can manage), but my Chinese is non existent.

Lol. Reminds me of the husband from... Dang, can't remember the title. The one with the high school loves reuniting, but one is married and pregnant with her shitty husband's kid.

And then we also have one where the husband is nice, Even Though We're Adults

So 3 series recently with women cheating on their husbands. I wonder how much of a story setting trend this will be.

Huh I totally forgot about this one even though I liked the story so much.

And I kinda like the premice of this story too.

Doubt a scanlator would pick it up again considering it got licensed by Seven Seas recently. Though it doesn't come out till sometime February of next year.

There's many scanlators that don't care about stuff being licensed.

This has got to be the strangest post I have read in a long time here. I am assuming you are talking about open marriages (otherwise it is just straight up cheating and it is only "happy" because one side is unaware of said cheating). Such arrangements are rare. Most times when married people sleep around with folks other than their spouse, it is just straight up infidelity, regardless of the genders involved.

"This is unrealistic because I know a couple of very rare examples of people doing something vaguely similar and being happy." This manga is not depicting an open marriage, it is depicting plain old cheating. The two are not the same. The first is relatively rare, while the second is rather common. Equating the two and then calling the second one a "fantasy" because the first one exists is nonsensical.

And if you were not talking about open marriages, then your post makes even less sense, which is really saying something.

As for the manga itself, I am seconding the person who said they hated every single character here. I eagerly await further chapters~

Weak premise, uninteresting characters, overused plot (girls can't love girls, where have I seen this before?), a shame, really, because the art is pretty good.

I'm slightly scared and a little stressed out by this manga but I'm gonna strap myself in for the ride because why not? I wish us all a safe journey through this probable rollercoaster of a series. Good luck =)

Does ‘lesbian trapped in het marriage due to societal expectations’ exceed the tag character limit?

Yeeeeah / It doesnt become magically good or realistic just because you added cheating or drama init / still maybe It can become something more

I hate cheating story no matter how cute or hot the characters are.. But I appreciate this new addition to the adult life tag. I've been dying to read new stuff in this tag.

Thank you translator

I really dislike all of the characters and want to drop this but I kind of want to continue reading this because I relate to Yukako so much and I want to see if she progresses. Decisions, decisions.
