What happens in ever after?

Out of the blue, today i was revisting the multiple fairy tales I have listened or read as a kid. Most of them end with, they lived happily ever after.That got me thinking, what happens in this ever after? How can human beings be possibly happy and cheerful all the time? I know there are people who are happy most of the time, I admit that the population is very small.Then, how can we end fairy tales with this happily ever after? What is the idea of reality we are feeding to impressionable kids? I am not sure why I think so but today i only feel like questioning happy endings though i always love them as a rule.
