Happy Endings
Based on my knowledge, nearly 95% people prefer a happy ending for a story or a movie, but in the reality a percentage of people have a happy ending with their life, marriage, school, work is much lower than that. That is reason why people keep prefer a happy ending for things that they read, watch or work on.

Over the scenario B, Margaret, the author has name list of acts that in my opinion it is very rude, terrible and not acceptable that John does to Mary. But Mary keep loving him without any complain, or notice and keep hoping that one day he would change and love her. But life is not like what people...
