This couple doesn't have many things. They have what is needed to live, and not much else. They don't have any huge sources of entertainment or fun. They have What they need, and each other. They aren't likely to have any huge opportunities, or large chances to get more than they have.
These are my things. Things I truly call my own. All for entertainment, or making my life a bit more convenient. Everything I want and need is given to me. I don't really have to work for it.
Granted, I don't live on my own or anything like that, so of course i have the things I need handed to me, but even so, my parents work to keep our lives steady. Maybe the people in the picture aren't fighting for survival or something like that, but that doesn't mean there aren't people who are.
