We all thought they were meant to be together.  We watched, cried and sighed as Sex In The City’s Carrie Bradshaw and Mr.Big found each other.

But now we are told that this relationship was not as “preordained’ or ‘destined’ as it seemed to be.

The New York Post reports that Darren Star, the creator of the long running series has revealed in a recent interview that the couple works against the entire point of the show.

Speaking in an interview with Kindle Singles, Darren said, “I think the show ultimately betrayed what it was about, which was that women don’t ultimately find happiness from marriage,” said Starr. “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.”

The beloved character, Carrie, played by Sarah Jessica Parker, should have in his opinion, stayed as a solo woman at the end of the series.  Darren admits that although he created the Sex in the City world, the show’s other writers and producers wanted to take Carrie’s life in a very different direction. Ultimately, that was the direction that was taken.

In fact, out of the four main women characters in the series only one woman was allowed to remain an unattached woman.  The Personality plus Samantha Jones, played by actress Kim Cattrall, was left to face the world with her famous sexual prowess ‘powers’ alone.

Sex In The City series ran from 1998 – 2004, and was followed by two movies, Sex In The City (2008) and Sex In The City 2 (2010).  There was also a follow up ‘prequel’ series, The Carrie Diaries, which ran from 2013 – 2014.

  • True, it would have been a more interesting story. Mind, I was always captured most by Miranda’s struggles to compromise and build a relationship.

  • I don’t think it would have been as successful considering everything (or what seems) in the entertainment industry thrives off sexual tension. Plus the whole. Cinderella fairytale wedding is a big thing for women. I really wonder what I would have been like the other way around hmm.

  • It make sense that she should have remained solo – but don’t we all love a happy ending?

  • Why tell tales about the show now. You can’t rewrite it so leave us all with our happy Carrie ending.

  • I agree with Darren Star, and although I would have liked for Carrie to have a relationship with someone, her relationship with Mr Big was way too fairytale an ending for my liking.

  • I think it was great how it ended, they may have been single for a lot of it and didn’t like the idea of marriage but people change/circumstances change and the show showed that :)

  • lol i can’t believe that i am going to discuss this lol, but i think that they were all at THAT time in their lives. Pressure from careers and trying to enter the new phase in life. etc. So they were all trying to find love and some were successful. I think that the show was great for it’s time.
