Elizabeth and Jackson would go before the judge. They needed the judge’s approval to make the changes. They both decided to start living a life of less. They were born into families that offered privilege and wealth. Their last names carried a certain high level of status that others didn’t. Having more made neither one of them happy. They gave away seventy-five percent of their belongings and moved into smaller living spaces.

At the courthouse, Elizabeth explained to the judge that she didn’t want to keep the E and the Abeth anymore in her name. “I’ve been given so much.”
