its just i cant find anything that does have happy ending like opheous or all of Zeus poor lovers!! any happy endings for me then just awnser11/22/2006 #1
There are quite a few Greek myths that end happily, although I haven't taken any classes on specific Roman mythology.12/04/2006 #2
There is the myth of Eros and Psyche, which you could probably just Google to find it. The Odyssey ends happily, but it seems like all myths have (gruelling) challenges in the content. I suppose the myth of Hades and Persephone could end happily, depending on the person who reads it. I can't remember any more at the moment, haha. Sorry, hope I helped!

Pygmalion and Galatea have a happy ending. A bit of sexist ending, but still by strictest definition, happy.1/21/2007 #3
Helen and Menelaus have happy ending. Along with Ariadne and Dionysus.3/18/2007 #4
I like to think that the legend of Hades and Persephone has a happy ending.7/30/2007 #5
I mean, come one. Who /wouldn't/ want to get it on with the God of the freaking Underworld?
Or at least, get away from an opressive mother who is far too protective of you?
I honestly can't stand Helen and Menelaus; I mean, not only did the movie Troy give me a *somewhat* biased view, the legends around them are...blah.3/10/2008 #6
I suppose that Hades and Persephone live happily, but I've always thought that she was a young girl--in her preteens, so I've heard--which, as you can imagine, is a little...ew.
Odysseus has a happy ending. Well, unless you count the post-Homeric myths where he gets killed and Telemachus marries Circe while Penelope marries his son by Circe.
But whatever ;)
It's all about what happens, okay, yah I'm a cryptic, but what ever:d9/29/2008 #7
I love Ariadne and Dionysus as a happy ending. Bluss Dionysus didn't really have any extramarital affairs. For a god that gets....trashed a lot...that's commendable
Cupid and Psyche
Perseus and Andromeda
Odysseus and Penelope? Even though he slept with a few women i think...it was always going to be Penelope
Actually thinking about it, theres not many happy ending love stories in greek myth...what a shame10/24/2009 #8
There's a reason that the Greeks are known for their tragedies... Lol.
The only two that I can think of that end happily are:
Hades and Persephone... Well, at first, it's not happy, but then after she learns to love Hades, it turns out alright. :) I've maybe heard one instance where Hades cheats on his wife. So, I would say that they are pretty content with each other in the Underworld.
Poseidon and Posedia turned Amphitrite? Well, it depends on the version of the myth... But, anyways, even though Poseida dies, she becomes into a sea nymph (Amphitrite) and then, everything is good again. :P I think so, anyways.
Lol... Hopefully, this was somewhat helpful...4/24/2010 #9
Persephone was Hades' niece. And Zeus married his sister Hera and their parents were brother and sister and Zeus' son Hercules married Zeus and Hera's daughter Hebe and...what was up with that family?5/11/2012 #10
It explained why Vulcan was ugly and deformed. Would Zeus have cheated on his wife so much if she hadn't been his sister?5/25/2012 #11
Guys. Okay. Persephone was believed to be a godess. The daughter of Demeter. So, Persephone is NOT a young girl, technically speaking. She was believed to be immortal so her true age was unkown. it's still sickening. But, think about it Greek mythology in itself has many disturbing aspects it's still incredibly interesting. And that myth doesn't really end happily for Persphone because she doesn't like Hades, she was kidnapped, and she can only be around he real home half of the year.4/01 #12
