I think the first key to answering this question is understanding what the suburbs are. Most people consider themselves to either live in the city, or outside the city (the suburbs). The suburbs are usually less populated regions that do not contain the city life including lots of commercial buildings, big populations, and public transportation. In the city, most people could survive on public transportation. Nowadays, most cities have all sorts of transportation including buses, trains, subways, and taxi services. However, in the suburbs, there aren't as many public transportation. Hence living in the suburbs is pretty much a necessity to owning a car, unless you are comfortable walking, riding a bike, or any other means.

While there may seem to be a social stigma about owning a recliner, by no means does owning one make you seem like an old person. Many high tech and modern home movie theater rooms are equipped with plush leather recliners that are enjoyed by the entire family. Having one in your living room would be a great choice.
