No, no one should have to suffer to gain wealth, but the desire to attain wealth by any means possible has been known to cause suffering of one kind or another. Kino has lost his belongings, his son, and the respect of his wife. His family has been denigrated, harassed, and continuously threatened since the pearl was found.
