Elaine W. Miller's Third Book Become’s an “Idiot’s” Guide to Marriage
“At least half the married population must believe they married idiots,” Miller explains. “Otherwise fifty percent of all marriages wouldn’t end in divorce. I know I married an idiot. And so did my spouse. We all did!”
Lighthouse Publishing of the Carolinas announces the release of Elaine W. Miller's book, We All Married Idiots: Three Things You Will Never Change About Your Marriage and Ten Things You Can.
“At least half the married population must believe they married idiots,” Miller explains. “Otherwise fifty percent of all marriages wouldn’t end in divorce. I know I married an idiot. And so did my spouse. We all did!” In We All Married Idiots explains that the word idiot is derived from the Greek word meaning common man. “And we’re all common in our own way,” Miller adds. “In fact, there is only One who was uncommon man and that’s Jesus Christ.”
According to Miller too many couples give up on their marriage only to discover the second time around that they’ve fallen for another idiotic, fallen and flawed mate.
According to The Barna Group, just one out of five adults (22%) has never been married. Among those who have said their wedding vows, one out of three have been divorced at least once. Those marriages least likely to end in divorce are Catholics (28%), evangelicals (26%), upscale adults (22%), Asians (20%) and those who deem themselves to be conservative on social and political matters (28%).
With laugh-out-loud humor, real-life illustrations, and Biblical truth, Elaine W. Miller cheers couples to run their marriage like a marathon, not like foolish sprints, with a commitment to each other and God. We All Married Idiots encourages husbands and wives to stop concentrating on the three things they will never change in their marriage (hint for guys: underwear and socks can be changed!), and begin focusing on the ten things they can.
Best-selling author and national speaker Lane P. Jordan writes, "I had no idea how funny this book would be. I also had no idea how exactly right-on her insights on marriage and people were."
