Will Beth Be Mrs. Stern?

Has Howard made any progress in convincing Beth?

Robin wondered if Howard had made any progress in his efforts to convince Beth to take the Stern name, but Howard reported he had not. Howard said he was sure that he didn't want her to hyphenate her name, as the abbreviation would inevitably end up as something goofy/Irish-sounding, like "Beth O'Stern." Howard added that he would be proud to have Beth enter a room and be referred to as "Mrs. Stern," but he really doesn't care: "Whatever she decides is fine with me."
