    Why love can't be like in the movies?

    Why love can't have a happy ending in reality? Where everyone live happily every after.

    Love does have a happy ending in real life. I'm sure you know a really old couple that have been happily married since they were young.

    All you have to do is put your spouse before yourself and for them to do the same to you. It's difficult, but it's simple.

    It depends on how someone define happiness. If someone always says, "Thanks God for the life you gave us." S/he will possibly always be happy.

    If it doesn't have a happy ending it is the fault of the two parties involved. Something they did was wrong. It may be as simple as they weren't the right match. They may have failed to communicate their wants and needs. Reality is, and the movies rarely show it, that love equals work. Many are lazy and expect "puppy love" to say without any effort. That simply isn't reality.

    Damanee, when you watch those movies with happy-ever-after endings, perhaps you're not noticing that at least one in the couple has a background of heartbreak and disappointment.

    The long-lasting successful love is rarely achieved by anyone who hasn't already had their heart broken at least once ... often more than that.

    If you are in the heart-broken stage, you are one step closer to the future relationship where you get a happy ending. smile

    Good luck in the future.

    It's the same reason why adult love can't be like one's "first love" in Jr. High School or even college for that matter.
    Movies and teens don't focus on all of the worldly stressful tensions people have to deal with. (An overbearing boss, mortgage/rent, car payments, squabbles with exes from previous relationships/marriages, children issues, and countless other obligations which battle for "mindshare" or attention in one's life.
    Human beings make mistakes! This also often includes choosing the "wrong mates" for ourselves. We make commitments during the "infatuation phase" of a relationship without truly knowing if we share the same values or want the same things for the relationship.
    Most movies end with "the wedding". In reality it's the day afterwards where the marriage (begins). Another thing worth noting is most people don't want to pay $10-$15 U.S. dollars to watch a movie that (doesn't) have a "happy ending"! You're not going to see many "blockbuster" movies about divorce, spousal abuse, and heartache unless in the "end" things turn around for the main character.

    Love is faced with reality when in the movies  it is all based on acting and that image gives you an idea of love.

    Life is different from movies. It  is reality to the core. When there are too many expectations in love, there are bound to be disappointments. Does this mean there is no happy ending to love? Marriage is the happy ending to love. But living happily ever after is a fantasy as life is always ridden by problems. How well you overcome your problems and keep your love intact is the ultimate happiness you can expect.
