The American Dream was considered to be a perfect, successful life, with a common nuclear family (husband and wife, two kids, a dog), a house in the suburbs with the classic "white picket fence" (symbolizing purity and order), a nice car (to represent success and comfortable wealth) and a life without conflict or family strife.
