Song of Solomon (Song of Songs)
What’s Up With the Ending?
You'd think that at the end, the lovers would either get together or die, right? Anyone who's seen a romantic comedy or read a Shakespeare tragedy knows how that works.
Well, these two definitely don't die, so does that mean they get together?
Probably. At the end, the bride's family finally gives a (sort-of) endorsement to the union between the two lovebirds, and according to some people, the whole thing takes place at a wedding.
A happy ending, indeed.
