Very Sexy   
Rating: 10.0 / 10.0

This manga is definitely hot stuff. Lots of sexual tension and sweet romantic moments. The male lead, Hokuto, is actually pretty cute (personality wise). Plus, he's sexy as hell. The relationship between the two main characters is really great in this manga. Hokuto is really sweet to Chiwa. I don't know if he's really in love with her yet, but he sure is displaying all the traits of a man in love. There's lots of chemistry and lots of laughable moments. You'll have a great time reading this.

Surprised that I liked it

I started reading this with low expectations of it being the same standard smutty josei. It's totally different from my expectation, and a pleasantly surprisingly good romantic comedy. Both leads are decent well rounded characters. Although the Chiwa does have her irritating moments of crying I can't help but root for her success in re: to Hokuto. She's plucky and cute and acknowledges her shortcomings. Hokuto, on the other hand I'm surprised to see that he's not the average everyday forceful boyfriend/husband who commands their SO every so often with no regards for their feelings. He does have his moments of that, but it's not apparent or shockingly stark. At least the author makes a focus to show that he's not some perfect rich kid with no problems or flaws.
Also one of the better parts that I'm happy about is that he considers the pair as equals and upholds the marriage that bind them.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Although there was one moment when Hokuto threatened raped that was uncomfortable to read. I understand it's suppose to be comedic but still...


The plot is nothing really special, it's amusing and really quick to read. If you enjoy shoujo and smut, go for this.

The ending could have been better. :/

A Bit Serious and Lacked Romanticness   
Rating: 5.0 / 10.0

In the start of the volume, i kinda like the comedic romance between them.
But as the chapters progress, the plot become overly dramatic and the male protagonist was always missing in action and not by the girls side. It lacks the doki doki feeling which makes my heart skip a bit.
The sex was a bit unappealing. The foreplay they make was like of those in the yaoi manga. I'm not insulting yaoi manga, in fact i'm a hardcore fan of them. I just thought that the girl's face when they have sex is a distasteful, its not erotic and the girl seems always in pain.

Enjoyed It

I had my doubts about this manga and even after reading it there were some things I just didn't like, but, overall, I think it was really good.

My list of dislikes is short: I think the story was repetitive with somethings--they argued about the same thing so many times, but I suppose a real marriage would be similar.

And Chiwa's constant crying about EVERYTHING. I don't remember a chapter where she wasn't tearing up. In the beginning I thought Chiwa would be a badass that didn't take crap from anyone, but the moments where Chiwa actually reverted back to that girl that threw a drink on Hokuto were few and far between. The rest is filled with fights, running away, and then making up.

But I guess that kept it interesting. I liked everything else: From the drama within the Mamiya family, to Hokuto's past, I actually like that he works so much and I can't understand how Chiwa can be so sensitive about that. He's a freaking president of a company! He can't entertain her everyday! I like the exs although I feel like Chiwa had way too many admirers and she didn't feel like it was a big deal, but she just wants to roll in a ball and die when she finds out Hokuto had an ex-girlfriend.

I like how everything was wrapped up, although I wish I could have seen an extra of life after the baby. I can't even imagine what that would be like.

A few minor annoyances that were usually resolved by the end of the chapter and sometimes the characters became a little annoying at which point they deserved a good slap. There were moments I laughed, cried, screamed and said "That's it, I'm done with this," just to go on reading it again.

Overall, it was a really good read, I read it all in one sitting(with breaks to stop myself from throwing my computer)and I'm sure I'll revisit this story in the future.

First two or three chapters were alright. Then it went down in the dumps once the mangaka decided to make the girl an idiot. The recent chapters are especially painful and rather degrading to women in general.

Not good enough for Josei   
Rating: 6.0 / 10.0

If you are a fan of a simple light romance story with some smutty scenes it's worth to try. You can enjoy it to a certain level. But if you expect more you won't get it.
The strenght, the flow of the story and its characters building are in shoujo manga level. Early chapters were okay until it failed to develop in later chapters. Mostly because of the main char's inconstant behaviors. The setting is in work environment and she is an office lady, that's all ...that can be categorized as Josei.

I rarely finish josei/shoujo mangas but i managed with this one. I just think it's your typical, classic mature josei manga - there's sweet bits, there's comedy and then a bit of drama. I'm not a fan of drama but it's more of an end-story thing. Although disappointing, it wasn't much of a bother for me. I also don't really like the fights.. and how her husband slaps her. If you're okay with a somewhat femme fatale girl and you're seeking a mature romance manga then this is a good read.

Overrated

Honestly, I don't see what there's to like about this manga.
A selfish male lead who does change, but still annoys me. A heroine with no brains at all. Annoying cliches. Along with more stupid characters.

Maybe I'm just a black sheep or something, but I just don't I just don't find this to be worth it.

This series was funny, serious, and quite realistic in a lot of ways. I really enjoyed it. There were times where I found myself laughing out loud or talking to myself . I love the art work. There's something about it that's fits my tastes perfectly. The panels were really easy to read/follow. Sometimes I read mangas where the story gets confusing to follow in parts or the dialogue just doesnít work for me. I didnít have this problem with Happy Marriage. The plot flowed nicely and I enjoyed the dialogue because it felt very natural and realistic.

What I like most about this series is that despite some of the obvious clichés here, the relationship between the main characters developes in a very believable manner. It seems natural and it pulls you in. The relationship is charming and that charm carries the story to the end.

The main characters were great - funny, insightful, cute, etc. I also loved the ensemble cast and getting to know about our heroís past. I think the mystery there could have been a bit stronger, but I was glad that it wasn't over the top. It didnít take away from the story. I think my only issue is that our heroineís father disappears for too much of the story. We donít really get to know much about him except that heís a bit of a trouble maker that means well.

Overall, if youíre looking for a mature romance manga, Iíd definitely give this one a try. It was a lot of fun and I read all 10 volumes in two days.
