They say that art imitates life, and life is far from perfect. So it only makes sense that every movie doesn’t have a “happily ever after.” Some are even downright depressing. But such is life, right?

Some of the greatest romantic movies (and some that aren’t so great) actually involve a leading lad and lady who don’t run off into the sunset together. Plenty such films involve the death of one of the characters, evoking the “til death do us part” clause. But these movies involve couples who don’t end up together for reasons other than death — where it's an insurmountable age difference, new (or old) love interests swooping in, bad timing, or just life getting in the way.
