So far I have only seen the "ever after" as part of the "... and they lived happily ever after" statement, a sugary phrase most romantic movies ended with, meaning, "... e eles viveram felizes para sempre". (I did some Internet research only to conclude someone coined and put it in a movie script long, long ago. The phrasing indeed stuck.)

Both "forever" and "ever after" indeed translate as "para sempre". But you won't see movies ending with "... and they lived happily forever."
