My Wife is the Student Council President (Japanese: おくさまが生徒会長！ Hepburn: Okusama ga Seito Kaichō!) is a Japanese manga series by Yumi Nakata. It began serialization in Ichijinsha's shōnen manga magazine Comic Rex from 2011 and has been collected in ten tankōbon volumes. The story was initially presented in 2007 as Okusama wa Seito Kaichō (奥さまは生徒会長), which was published in a single tankōbon volume by Jitsugyo no Nihon Sha, Ltd. in 2007. An anime television series adaptation by Seven aired from July to September 2015. A second season aired from October 2 to December 18, 2016.
Hayato Izumi runs for student council president at his new high school, but loses to Ui Wakana, a perky and charismatic girl who pledges to liberate love on campus, and throws condoms into the audience during her election speech. He ends up becoming the vice-president on the student council. He soon learns that due to an arrangement by their parents, Ui is going to be his fiancée, and they have to live together. He tries to keep their cohabitation a secret from the school and its all-female student council leadership, while fending off Ui's progressively aggressive romantic and sexual advances at home. He attracts the attention of discipline head Rin Misumi, who later moves in next door with her sister Kei, the school's nurse.

Chris Beveridge of The Fandom Post gave the first anime episode a B+ and said "I’ll admit that the concept is familiar and at the same time goofy, but there’s a certain quality about it that’s charming, sexy and has the potential to be a hell of a lot of fun." He give later episodes B's, writing that "the show does feel like it’s trying to be a bit educational though it tends to fall more on the whole titillation side more than anything else." In his review of episode 9, he wrote that "the show takes things further than reality would in a lot of ways, there’s a lot of fun in just having characters that actually acknowledge some form of sexuality that exists." and summarized the series as "Silly and serious but with a great dose of a fanservice, this show is just a delight to watch." In reviewing the final episode, he wrote "It does things that most shows are afraid to even think of, never mind even trying a fraction of doing when it comes to character relationships, intimacy and sexuality."
