You know I’m so grateful that brooklyn nine nine has completely averted the trope of men who hate being married, dont really like their wife, or see getting married as being trapped. In the main cast. In the main case there are two men that are married, and one man in a domestic partnership. All three of them are portrayed as being absolutely devoted to their partners, and all of the characters love their relationships.

And then there is jake, who is engaged, and so in love with amy that he literally shouts it to the sky. He is 100% involved in the wedding planning, not because he “has” to but because he loves it and enthusiastically cares, and his greatest fear is that he will in some way fail as a husband in some way.

Brooklyn nine nine gets so much recognition for its diversity, as it should, but I have never seen such positive portrayals of masculinity on tv before.
