Or if thou wilt needs marry, marry a fool.

A lot of my friends are married and very few of them married fools. Sometimes, though, marrying a fool does seem like a good idea. You’d have to be fairly specific about the KIND of fool you were choosing, though. A drooling fool could well become a disaster. But a clever fool might be fun – might be wise. A fool of the naïve variety might be sweet and keep your spirits up when the world had grown darker. A pretentious fool would be insufferable but a wise fool could keep you on the up and up, if you listen to him. Everyone is a fool in their own way and if you love and marry the fool part first, you’ll be marrying the true person, I think. Love your fool. Your own and your partner’s.
