The happily ever after?

"Finally the prince found her, they got married and they lived happily ever after" concluded the fairy tale. All of them.

While I wondered, is there a happily ever after? Neither Romeo nor Ranjha ever had the happily ever after. Mumtaz may have been given a marble palace to rest but that was only after she died. Details of her love and relationship with the emperor are still questioned.

I have had this fancy to be Cinderella's shoes or Snow white's mirror to find out what happened after they got married.

In my world, as I wait for my happily ever after, almost everyone I meet tells me about shaadi ke side effects.

I have observed that most relationships are mix of sweet and tangy experiences that couples experience together. There are fights, quarrels, make ups, etc. in all relationships.

I don't have much to talk about Happily ever after since I do not really believe in it. What is your take on it? Do you believe that one can have a fairy tale happily ever after?

  1. It's a work in progress according to me... :D
    I think my post explains it better :)

  2. There are people who live a happily ever after, except that their ever after is a continuous thing.. Also, that is a one in a million thing :D

  3. A happily ever after is a state of mind and one gotta learn to be happy to tread along the path of life!

    1. Maybe you are right...but fairytale happiness is something i dont think is achievable.


  4. Happily ever after is made... with lots of compromises and understanding... with lot of patience and love. No two person are same so it's very natural that they would have disagreements... but it's the way they forget their egos and try to understand what the other one is saying - is what makes a happily ever after.

    1. I agree to your point...but like i said...it is a mix and not a complete state.
