The story is a little cliche. Kaoru and Ranmaru are marrying so that their family businesses (two Yakuza gangs) will become one. It is assumed that the two have known each other since they were children. While on their honeymoon, Ranmaru is seduced and sleeps with Al, a dashing, blonde Italian. This could be the plot of any gushy romance novel, with a yaoi twist. The second episode gives a little more intrigue and perhaps a little more depth to Al. Ranmaru is still pretty thick-headed. Though, I still say the plot was taken from a dime-store smut book.
