"It is the wretchedness of being rich that you have to live with rich people."
-- Logan Pearsall Smith
If Logan is tired of rich people, what stops him from packing a suitcase and getting an apartment in the cheap end of town?
OK, I suspect this is in fact a witticism from Mr. Smith, but like all good wit, it's based on a truth. And I'm always amazed at the now-I'm-supposed-to's that people will willingly enslave themselves to. They'll do something just because that's-what-you-do.
Just for one example, often you'll see somebody who has a goal and a lifestyle which is completely anathema to getting and supporting a family, but who nevertheless gets one anyway.
