Viz Media licensed the manga, and it describes the story:

Viz Media released all 10 volumes of Enjōji's Happy Marriage!? manga series in North America, as well as both volumes of Enjōji's SP x Baby manga. Happy Marriage!? inspired a live-action series in 2016.

Enjōji launched a new manga series titled Tsumari Sukitte Iitian dakedo, (I Mean, I Want to Say I Like You But,) on June 8.
