The Abandoned Husband Dominates - Chapter 392
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
Become a live-in husband!
That was a humiliating thing for any man!
Having been a live-in-husband to Hailey for three years, Jordan knew how humiliating it was to be a live-in husband whom everyone would despise and look down on!
Lauren’s aunt laughed and said, “Marissa’s suggestion is great. We ought to let someone from the arrogant Steele family marry into our family. Let’s see if they dare to look down on us again. Besides, this guy is quite good-looking and he has the potential to be a gigolo. Haha.”
Without those three years of experience as a live-in husband, Jordan would probably be livid at the moment. However, Jordan was very calm at the moment. He had even married a wanton woman like Hailey and had put up with an abominable mother-in-law like Sylvie, for three years.
He believed that no matter what, Lauren and Marissa had to be much better than Hailey and Sylvie.
So Jordan looked at Marissa and said, “Okay, I agree to become Lauren’s live-in husband!”
Smack! Smack! Smack!
Brad clapped his hands and laughed out loud. “Lauren, you’re really impressive and domineering. Most women get married off but you got yourself a live-in husband! I’m going to notify all the people I know and have them all come over to attend Lauren’s wedding so that they can see her getting a live-in husband. Haha.
“Someone, get over here!”
Brad called out and the Howards’ subordinates helped him up before sitting him down on the wheelchair. It seemed that he was getting ready to leave. When his subordinate pushed him past Jordan, Brad said while seated in his wheelchair, “Well done. If you need money, come to me.”
After saying that, Brad was pushed out by his men as he took the lead to leave.
On the other hand, Clarice stood up and opposed, “We can’t let him marry Lauren as a live-in husband. Everyone in DC knows that Chris is engaged to Lauren, and we’ve already accepted the wedding gifts. If we renegade and let Lauren marry a man who’s going to become her live-in husband, what are the Hanks going to think?”
At this moment, Martin said, “Clarice, you think too much, the Hanks can barely save themselves now. Even if we don’t cancel the engagement, he won’t marry Lauren. I will give Lawrence Hank an explanation. You don’t have to worry about this matter.”
Seeing that her grandfather seemed to agree to this marriage, Clarice knew that it was pointless to say anything else, but she just didn’t want Jordan to marry Lauren.
Clarice exclaimed with pursed lips, “Anyway, I will never acknowledge him as my brother-in-law!”
Alex chimed in, “Ditto.”
After saying that, the pair of siblings left together.
Martin laughed and said, “Jordan, it seems that you are not very welcomed by the Howards.”
Jordan laughed bitterly. Of course he wouldn’t be liked by them, given how terribly he had treated them in the past.
On the other hand, Martin didn’t care if his children agreed to the marriage or not. He had greater plans in mind and he was eying the Steeles’ secrets, as well as the help that the Steeles would give to the Howards after Lauren marries him.
Martin said gleefully, “Stefan.”
At this moment, the middle-aged man sitting next to Marissa stood up.
He was Lauren’s father, Stefan.
“Dad, what orders do you have for me?”
Stefan had never said anything about their marriage because he knew that with Martin present, it was useless for him to say anything since Martin called the shots in this family.
Stefan wasn’t doing too well and he hadn’t been an ambitious person since he was a child. He was inferior to Chris’s father, Lawrence, which was the reason that the Hanks had the audacity to recklessly hit Lauren and Chloe.
Martin said, “Although the wedding date is still on the 1st of April, its nature has already changed. We didn’t have to do much to prepare for the wedding previously. But now that Jordan is becoming her live-in husband, we’ll have to be in charge of the wedding.”
“Dad, I know. I’ll book the hotel and arrange the invitations to the guests as soon as possible,” Stefan replied in response.
Martin nodded. “I want to throw a grand wedding this time! It doesn’t have to be low-key, we can hold an extravagant one and invite more guests. The guests don’t have to be of a certain standard. Just invite more people, regardless of whether we have any feud with them or not. It’s just an extra serving of food each.”
Stefan said, “Yes, I got it.”
Martin then looked at Jordan. “Jordan, those eight hundred underlings of yours who have come all the way here from abroad, may attend the wedding too! However, shouldn’t you invite your relatives as well? After all, you’re the groom and although you’re going to be a live-in husband, you can still invite some guests.”
Jordan replied, “I’ll call my parents and brothers, and try my best to invite them.”
Martin nodded happily and said, “Great, I want to have a drink with your family too! Don’t worry, since you’re going to marry my granddaughter, you and I will be family. I will treat anyone from your family as my family too. And I can guarantee that they will be absolutely fine when they come to DC.”
Martin continued, “The wedding is happening the day after tomorrow. It just so happens that Lauren and Chris haven’t registered their marriage yet. Jordan, so you should go and register your marriage with Lauren first.”
Since they had decided to get married, they had to register their marriage and obtain the marriage certificate before the wedding.
Jordan held Lauren’s hand and asked, “Are you… willing to go and register our marriage with me?”
Lauren smiled blissfully and agreed. “Yes.”
“Okay, in that case, Mr. Howard Sr., we’re going to get our marriage registered,” Jordan said as he looked at Martin.
“Mr. Howard Sr? It’s time you change the way you address me!” Martin grimaced in displeasure.
Jordan still did not directly call him ‘Grandpa’.
With that, Martin smiled and waved his hand without forcing him. “Go, go.”
After Jordan and Lauren left, Martin said to Clyde who was beside him, “Clyde, stay behind for the next few days and attend the wedding before you leave.”
“Okay, now accompany me to the garden for a walk.”
The two of them came to the back garden behind the house and Clyde wondered, “Mr. Howard Sr., why are you so happy about Miss Howard marrying Jordan Steele?”
Martin smiled, looked up at the blinding sunlight and said, “If you find out the secret of the Steeles one day, you will be happier than me.”
Clyde asked in puzzlement, “What… what secret do the Steeles have exactly?”
Martin shook his head and said, “How do I know? It’s up to Lauren to tell me in the future. From today, I will do my best to live on until the day that Lauren finds out the Steeles’ secrets!”
Only then did Clyde understand that the reason that Martin had allowed Lauren to marry Jordan was not as simple as the fact that Lauren loved him.
Lauren was Martin’s pawn!

Jordan and Lauren drove out of Martin’s house in the Cadillac that belonged to someone they didn’t know. Soon after, they ran into Salvatore’s car at the roadblock.
Salvatore got out of the car and smiled when he saw that Jordan was safe and sound. “Mr. Jordan, where are you going?”
Jordan said, “The City Clerk Office.”
Salvatore asked with surprise, “The City Clerk Office? Why are you going there?”
Jordan held Lauren’s hand and said, “I’m getting married to Lauren.. From now on, Lauren is your boss too!”
