Before you go thinking that sounds harsh, take a look at the trailer for Elaine Miller’s heartening non-fiction book regarding marriage and the spouses we choose.
I married an idiot—and so did my spouse. The word idiot is derived from the Greek word meaning “common man.” Aren’t we all common man? In fact, there is only One who was uncommon man—Jesus Christ. Elaine W. Miller encourages couples to keep their eyes fixed on Jesus and run a marriage marathon like an idiot, but not like a fool. An idiot may stumble or fall, but a fool runs the wrong way.
We All Married Idiots teaches husbands and wives to stop concentrating on the three things they will never change in their marriage and begin focusing on the ten things they can. Then each will esteem their mate as a gift to treasure, not an idiot to tolerate.
