Their ‘Happily Ever After’ never came!
All of us are well acquainted with this famous quote that people often put up as their status on various social platforms. We as humans have a tendency to accept things and then expect them to stay the same throughout the entire journey that we call life. But, my friend, change is something that is inevitable. None of us can stop it from happening. People do fall in love, they do get head over heels for someone but eventually, things change.
