Let's set aside how authoritarian, how unethical, and most importantly how pointlessly impractical it would be for a school to require its students to act lovey-dovey with another randomly-chosen student, supposedly for the purpose of having the students practice what it would be like to be newlyweds (it's like playing house, but with the possibility of failing and hurting your academic record). That dystopian scenario is being used because it creates a sense of romantic tension. Jirou and Akari are set up as practice marriage partners, but they both have crushes on other people. The only way to switch partners is to receive a high grade and the only way to receive a high grade is to play for the cameras watching their every move in the house they're forced to share, to act like they love somebody that they don't have any feelings for. Will their facade eventually lead to them developing actual feelings for each other?

And how can they trust Shiori and Minami, the people they have crushes on? If their crushes achieve high grades, wouldn't that mean that they acted lovey-dovey and got along well with their partners? What if they've actually developed feelings for each other? This manga follows the self-doubt and awkwardness of loving somebody when you feel uncertain whether fe'll love you back. I hate Shiori...just thought I'd put that out there.
