Apollo and Daphne: Apollo provokes Eros(Kama) and makes fun of his age and says he is too young to play with his bow and arrows. The enraged Eros curses Apollo and to teach him a lesson attacks him with gold arrow of love with Daphne and attacks Daphne with lead arrow of hate. So, Daphne prefers to stay a spinster like Artemis forever. The love struck Apollo chases Daphne like a maniac and she runs away crying for help avoiding him. Because of the curse when Apollo tried to grab her she turns to a tree.
Later in his life, Pandu marries Kunti and Madri and becomes the "penta-dad" of Pandhavas by ancient IVF(boon from a sage) with different donors other than himself.
Pandu and Madri - Pandu(Apollo) is the father of Pandavas of Kulushetra war. During his bachelor days, he accidentally kills a sage Kindama(Eros) while he was making love with his wife in a forest where Pandu mistakes them for a deer. Before dying, the sage-Kindama curses him that if ever tries to mate with any woman anytime, he would die.
- Yudhisthira - Kunti(mommy) and Dharma(donor)
- Bhima - Kunti(mommy) and Vayu(donor)
- Arjuna - Kunti(mommy) and Indra(donor)
- Nakula & Sahadeva (Twins) - Madri(mommy) and Ashwini(donors)
Nope, it doesnt happen other way, if wife happens to die, she dies alone and the pyre is lit by husband.
Moral of the story : People simply dont say "get a room" without a reason. If Kindama had done that, the tragedy could have been avoided.
