7. I think I know what you're saying..

and I'm sure your friend is in love and is very happy generally, and because of that, may be viewing his fiance's homeland through rose colored glasses.

As for happy poor vs.unhappy rich, I think a "happy" medium is more likely found in the middle class -- a real one with a manufacturing base and strong unions -- The kind we had in Post-war 50's and 60's and 70's. I think a lot of the reason people in America are unhappy now isn't because they "have too much", but because that middle class they once enjoyed has, under successive Republican administrations, been disappearing.
