The Sex and The City creator says Carrie was never meant to marry Big.

Apparently Sex and The City‘s Carrie Bradshaw was never meant to have a fairy tale ‘happily ever after’ with her Prince Charming, Mr. Big.

The main character of the hit TV series ended up getting married to a man she’d been dating on-and-off for a lot of the show’s history.

But Sex and The City creator, Darren Star, has come out to say that that was not supposed to happen, at least if he had any say in the matter.

This was never meant to happen...

The 54-year-old said that Bradshaw was never supposed to end up with Big, in an interview on Kindle Singles.

"I think the show ultimately betrayed what it was about, which was that women don't ultimately find happiness from marriage," Star said.

"Not that they can't. But the show initially was going off script from the romantic comedies that had come before it. That's what had made women so attached," he added.

They were never meant to marry.

Star went on to say that the ending was decided on by other writers and producers. He said he didn't feel like he wrote the last episodes, admitting that at a certain point he had to let them follow their own vision.

"At the end, it became a conventional romantic comedy...But unless you're there to write every episode, you're not going to get the ending you want," he said.

Over the six seasons of Sex and The Citywhich ran from 1998 to 2004, Sarah Jessica Parker's character (Carrie Bradshaw) had a bumpy ride with her on-again-off-again boyfriend 'Mr. Big'.

Considering he left her stranded at the alter before they eventually got married at New York's townhall, we could see how it would make sense for the pair to never get their happily ever after.

What do you think? Should it have ended with Bradshaw happily married?
