Why do stories have a happy ending?

Boy meets girl. They fall in love. They get married and live happily ever after. This is a simple example of a story with happy ending.

Why do most of the stories have a happy ending?

I got an optimistic answer on a TV show. The explanation goes like - "A story is not over until it culminates into a happy ending. This means that one should work thru difficult situations until the desired result is achieved."

I strongly feel that the goal should be determined before taking on the task to ensure that one is not settling for something less after beaten up by the hurdles on the way.
