Okay, so has anyone pointed out that Hero became submissive? Everyone looks at this play as Benedick and Beatrice, but Shakespeare used this play to prove that women in love should be devote and under thier husbands. Hero's "death" due to slander is the idea that no woman shuld live if she has disgraced her husband. This along with Beatrice submitting to love, is an important part to this play because the play is about women's role in society. This is very much where we get our image of the 50's housewife (the one who stayed home and cooked and never worked).
