It uses the present perfect because it is talking about the passing of time from the PAST UP UNTIL NOW. If it used the present tense it would only talk about time NOW. Which would mean they have a strange life NOW but in the past it might not have been strange. By using the present perfect it means they had a strange life in the past and now. They have ALWASY had a strange life.
