This article contains spoilers for the Parks and Recreation show. Continue at your own risk. It originally aired on May 20, to 4. The Pawnee government has shut down due to a budget crisis. When Leslie Knope explains at a town meeting that the Pawnee Summer Kick-Off featuring children's entertainer Freddy Spaghetti must be cancelled due to the shutdown, the citizens are outraged. Leslie visits state auditors Chris Traeger and Ben Wyatt seeking a way to keep the concert, but Ben insists there is simply no money for it. When Leslie complains to city planner Mark Brendanawicz about her situation, she learns he has taken a buyout and plans to join a construction company, partially in response to Ann Perkins having broken up with him. Meanwhile, Ann is struggling with her re-developing feelings for her ex-boyfriend Andy Dwyer. Later, Ann suggests to Leslie she should hold the concert at the Sullivan Street Pit , as it is not a park and therefore not shut down. Meanwhile, April Ludgate and Andy finally reveal their feelings to each other, but April still rejects him, believing Andy still has feelings for Ann.

In the series, Ron is the director of the Parks and Recreation department of fictional town of Pawnee , Indiana , and the immediate superior of series protagonist Leslie Knope Amy Poehler until Knope's election to the Pawnee City Council at the end of Season 4. In demeanor, political philosophy and work ethic, Knope and Swanson are polar opposites: where Knope is sunny and outgoing, decidedly liberal and constantly working, Swanson is distant, and as a staunch libertarian , is a strong advocate for small government —stating his belief that government should be privatized—and therefore believes that the parks department should not even exist. Ron, who has an extremely deadpan and stereotypical masculine personality, actively works to make city hall less effective and despises interacting with the public. He loves meat, woodworking, hunting, whisky , breakfast foods, nautical literature, and sex. He hates and fears his ex-wives, both named Tammy , one of whom is played by Offerman's real-life wife, Megan Mullally. Ron claims not to be interested in the personal lives of those around him but actually cares a great deal about his colleagues, and has a particularly strong respect for Leslie. Conceived by series creators Michael Schur and Greg Daniels, Ron has been a central character since the pilot episode of Parks and Recreation. Offerman had some input into the character's creation, and some aspects of Ron's personality were inspired by the actor, like his affinity for woodworking and year-old Lagavulin Single Malt scotch. The traits of the character were also partially inspired by a real-life Libertarian elected official in Burbank, California.
The doctrinal and afterlife issues around a non-temple marriage are an entirely different topic, and one that I am personally much more at peace with than my questions about how one might make an interfaith marriage work in this life. He was also born in Russia during the 80s and did not come to the United States until so we sometimes deal with cultural differences as well as religious. I hate to say it, but I don't see this ending well. Really, I'm interested in this too. He admitted then that there had been another short sexual liaison with a nurse prior to that. If she is full on Mormon, this relationship will go one of two ways: You will convert and change your entire lifestyle and personality to conform with her expectations never to deconvert or you will face severe penalitesor you will break up because you won't convert and change everything about yourself. He's a big boy and can make up his own mind. Let them explore and see the many people who love Heavenly Father and serve him with all their heart. He will have to wait outside if his children marry in the temple. For now, again, don't expect a decade long relationship.
