While everyone is happy that the longtime on again, off again couple are finally planning to tie the knot, Sheldon will prove to be a difficult sell.
Leonard and Penny will need to work out future plans for living together, where they’ll live, and how to take care of Sheldon’s needs that Leonard’s been doing for years.
