What is the plot of My Happy Marriage?

The story is set in the 19th Century Meiji Restoration Era and centers on a young woman named Miyo Saimori, who is born into a noble family known for their supernatural abilities. Unfortunately, Miyo was born without magical talent, and her abusive stepmother forces her into a Cinderella-esque life of servitude.

Miyo dreams of being whisked away to a better life when she reaches marriageable age. However, those dreams are dashed when the fiancé that is chosen for her is a man named Kiyoka Kudou – a commander with a reputation for being so cold and cruel that his previous brides-to-be escaped within three days of their engagements.

Miyo doesn’t have the option of refusing and with no place to go accepts her fate. Her pale and handsome future husband turns out to be very different from the rumors and isn’t the monster she expected. Slowly Miyo and Kiyoka open their hearts to each other and both begin to realize that their chance to find true love and happiness may just lie together.
