misfortunes never come alone

misfortunes never come alone

Bad things, event, situations, outcomes, etc., almost always arrive in groups of two or more all at once or in quick succession. My mother died in a car crash when I was just 12, and then my father succumbed to his grief and passed away a few months later. Misfortunes never come alone, as they say. My business collapsed, my wife left me, and the bank repossessed my home, all in the space of a year. Misfortunes never come alone, it seems.
