In the Scriptures, the story of Michal begins with love and ends with barrenness and death:

And Michal, Saul's daughter, loved David; and they told Saul, and the thing pleased him. 1 Samuel 18:20

And Michal the daughter of Saul had no child until the day of her death. 2 Samuel 6:23

Much might happen in between such short, bookend verses. This is the story of two young people who fell in love, who drifted out of it, and why.
