Sixteen-year-old high school student Fumino and her little brother, Teppei, have been in and out of relatives' homes since their parents died, and she's tired of it. She decides to take her brother and run away, but before that happens, she is confronted by her teacher, Kazuma, in a park. When asked what he can do to help, she explodes and tells him she doesn't want any vague sympathy, asking him to marry her and take care of them. He accepts, and she begins her life as a teenage housewife. The problem? If the school finds out they're married, Kazuma will lose his job!

The series mainly focuses on the relationship between Fumino and Kazuma, and has concluded after 10 volumes.

!!Examples:

* ACupAngst: Fumino after Meg shows up.
* AlphaBitch: Margaret Denton's manipulative behavior makes her one, she also qualifies as an [[BlondesAreEvil evil blonde.]]
** LovableAlphaBitch
* ArrangedMarriage: Margaret Denton (Meg) has one of these.
* BadassTeacher: There's a reason why Kazuma was called "Hell's Maa-kun" in his teenage years.
* BadLiar: Fumino
* BerserkButton: Don't call the trio a counterfeit family. [[http://www.mangareader.net/148-52692-12/faster-than-a-kiss/chapter-28.html Kazuma and Fumino will make you pay.]]
** More importantly, don't get too close to Fumino. Kazuma does ''not'' like it.
* BlackSheep: Kazuma and his family do not exactly get along. It can be assumed that Fumino also fits in this because she was swapped from family member to family member after her parents died before ending up married to her teacher.
* [[CantHoldHisLiquor Can't Hold Her Liquor]]: It takes all of [[http://www.mangareader.net/148-58022-25/faster-than-a-kiss/chapter-32.html half a glass of wine]] for Fumino to end up extremely drunk.
* TheClan: The Ojiro Family
* ClassTrip: Overlaps with the BeachEpisode and takes place in the fourth and fifth chapters.
* ConverseWithTheUnconscious: Kazuma to Fumino from time to time
* {{Delinquents}}: Kazuma ran away from his family to become one, also there seems to be a high number of them just wandering around the area to kidnap, harass, or in other ways, um, ''harass'' Fumino and the other female students at the school.
* DistressedDamsel: Fumino, despite being able to handle herself, tends to fill this role a ''lot''.
* DontYouDarePityMe : The original reason behind the oddball wedding
* DynamicEntry: Kazuma is pretty good at this.
* FanService: The various cosplay outfits that Fumino and Teppei wear for the various welcome home scenes with Kazuma. Oh and the lingerie which Fumino got from next door neighbor Ryū Shindō counts as well.
** Teppei also provides a fan service of a sort, though mostly by making all the female readers {{Squee}} from his absolute adorableness. I mean, [[http://www.mangareader.net/148-9785-5/faster-than-a-kiss/chapter-2.html just look at him in his sister's lap!]]
* FriendToAllChildren: Next door neighbor and kindergarten teacher Ryu Shindo.
* TheGlassesComeOff: Can you believe that [[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/faster_than_a_kiss/v01/c001/11.html This teacher]] can become [[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/faster_than_a_kiss/v01/c001/43.html this]] BadAss?
* GoldDigger: What Fumino is assumed to be by Kazuma's little brother, and the school population after the pair are seen leaving a love hotel together

* OneHeadTaller: Fumino and Kazuma
* OperationJealousy: A weird case: after learning about Meg's ArrangedMarriage, Fumino decides to flirt with Shouma in order to make her jealous so she'll wake up and see how she feels about him.
* ParentalAbandonment: Fumino and Teppei became orphans after their parents died in a car crash.
* PromotionToParent: Right after the death of her parents, Fumino experienced this.
* RunningGag: [[RecurringExtra Oka-chan]], [[ThoseTwoGuys when not together with the other two prominent members of the volleyball club]] or [[MoeBlob being around just to be cute]], is always seen being harassed by delinquents or otherwise tough-looking older men, and Fumino is the one to save her and make quick work of her harassers, with a subtle touch of LesYay (mostly from Oka-chan) afterward.
* SacredFirstKiss: Fumino is obsessed with getting her first kiss with Kazuma- and is less than pleased when her first kiss was [[IndirectKiss through a cold mask.]]
* SecretRelationship: The entire basis of the marriage between Fumino and Kazuma, she keeps her wedding ring as a necklace.
* {{Squee}}: Besides some of their more romantic moments, pretty much any appearance of Teppei will make the female (and less ashamed male) readers squeal in delight.
* {{Tsundere}}: Fumino, type A (only dere towards Kazuma and Teppei). Lashes out at Kazuma fairly often as well, usually while she's [[{{Fanservice}} wearing one of the cosplay outfits.]] Or when she's just embarrassed around him (anywhere, really) - which is often and its own RunningGag.
* TwoTeacherSchool: The only teacher who ever really seems to make an appearance is Kazuma- and when other teachers do show up their faces are completely [[FacelessMasses devoid of detail]]. Lao, on the other hand, would make two.
* UsedToBeASweetKid: Teppei sugests he will be one someday as shown [[http://www.mangareader.net/148-9794-39/faster-than-a-kiss/chapter-11.html here]].
* WhamEpisode: [[spoiler:Chapter 52 - Kazuma never submitted the marriage registration form, Fumino finds it, Shouma makes her believe everything Kazuma did was because he's a teacher, she thinks everything that happened are lies and Fumino and Teppei leave the apartment.]]
