Being wealthy is a good thing and, for many oligarchs, roping their children into their legacies has become a norm.
It is definitely the dream of every young boy or girl to complete their education, have a stable job, buy a car, build a house, and make a family.
While not everyone is able to achieve the aforementioned, those who are born to rich parents are an instant exception.
For they are heirs to numerous businesses and properties, and can almost afford anything that they want.
