May be we are not such fools as we look. But though we be, we are well content, so long as we may be two fools together.\

Does this mean

"It may be that we are not as foolish as we look. But even if we are, we are OK as long as we are both foolish"???

the quote from R.D. Blackmore in Lorna Doone broken down is

Maybe we are not such fools as we look.
perhaps we are not as foolish as we look

But though we be
but even if we are

we are well content
we are very happy

so long as we may be two fools together.
as long as we can be fools together.

Meaning foolishness like misery, enjoys company.
