Similar vibe - if you liked Bread and Butter, you might like this one too. Both adult relationships, got married suddenly and developed their love little by little following that.

I'd say if you're not a fan of mature relationships then Bread and Butter might be the better choice, as Goma Shio to purin has that theme of sex and has more of a drama focus. But i liked that both male leads were level headed, and the female leads dedicated.
