Oh yeah, it's going great and absolutely no one will be making any impulsive decisions with profoundly horrible consequences because of it.

HIS MOTHER MADE HER DO IT!

I'm sure she threatened her. Or else she is the reason he made the wrong desicions.

Seems to me like she's being kind of unfair to him here. As they say, it takes two to tango. Even if he's "clinging" to her, she was part of the relationship too. It's not all his doing.

Lady, considering how often fairy tales included "forbidden" marriages being allowed because Power Of Love, your argument is moot.

This is playing out very differently than I imagined, do huzzah for surprises.
I was worried you foreshadowed a bigger tragedy; Argue knocked up his lady, gave her the herbal "remedy" but wasn't careful enough and confused one of the herbs for a poison, lady dies, guilt, woe, tragedy! So this seems more nuanced. Looking forward to more!

(This situation is so relatable e.e I kinda know what she's feeling)

I wonder why they can't be together...
Classism? Incest? Is he such a dreamer?

I read it as classism. But I could be wrong.

Almost guaranteed to be classism, since BeastMom was primarily concerned about illegitimate children.

Yeah, Argus' nosy mother had already hinted that, when she insinuated that the girl could get an abortion with certain herbs...

Of course the psycho-bitch never will allow her son to get a non-profitable marry - let alone allow him to be happy!

his mother doesnt care about happiness. That is all weakness and stands in the way of his career and her power.

So confused I thought Argus didn't have a father? The man earlier said it was his place to teach him since there was no father!?
I can't wait to get to this cleared up I'm extremely confused now, but this makes it intrestingthats for sure.

I think Argus is in love with the idea of being in love, or with his idealized version of this woman, than actually in love with her. A lot of first loves are like that, and it's clear that she's not as smitten with him as he is with her. As for them marrying--she's just not that into him, it sounds like, and even if she was, they couldn't be together due to what seems to be class differences.

She is more rational in a bad way.
Maybe closer to his mom in her mindset as anybody would want. Seeing him as step upwards but realizing now that this way is a deadend. Maybe his mom already poisoned her mind, who knows.
Another big heartache for him.
