Recently, Parks and Recreation aired the episode I've long been waiting for: the Leslie and Ben wedding episode! It was magical and hilarious ,but my favorite part was when Ben said, "I really want you to take my last name… it’s just really important to me symbolically that Leslie Knope disappears and becomes Leslie Wyatt. Or Councilwoman Mrs. Ben Wyatt. That’s fine, too. It’s a deal breaker." Leslie's face was priceless, and I am so grateful to this show for making a joke about how ridiculous it is for a man to demand a woman take his last name.
Congratulations Leslie and Ben! I hope you have many more seasons of love together.
P.S. I wish I had been like Leslie, and asked for a wedding dress that captured "the sensuality of Eleanor Roosevelt combined with the animal magnetism of Lesley Stahl.”
