I hear people say all the time that happily ever after does not happen in real life. I am here to tell you that it does. It may not look like in the fairy tales with a castle and all of a sudden have no worries but it does happen. My parents are the best example of this I have ever seen. Because of my parents AND my love of books I have always been partial to happy endings.
When I was in high school I used to read series with my best friend. Her parents bought her the books and we shared them. The series always had about 4 or 5 five books to them and they were sort of tragic. A lot of heartbreak and tragedy happened along the way before you got to the final book where there was usually some happiness. I enjoyed those books at the time but now I do not. It seems awful to try so hard to reach a happy ending only to get a little bit closer than you were before.
I like to read where the person falls in love and finds happiness. I think a lot of people do. I do not like where all their problems magically go away because they are n love.
The answer to the question is yes I like happy endings, even happy for now endings. I no longer care for tragic endings though I did when I was younger. Which do you prefer?
