The episode talks about the societal nature of patriarchy which has led to so many ‘normals’ in the society and culture. One of such many ‘normals’ is the wife dropping her father’s name and taking her spouse’s name after marriage.

Ade and Dare examined this topic and also talked about the option of the men taking the wife’s last name. Although this last option is strange to the patriarchy system stemmed in deep cultural and religious beliefs, it could still be explored if given a chance.
