The Word of God is indeed true. As said in Proverbs 21:19 'It is better to dwell in the wilderness, than with a contentious and an angry woman", this is happening in my life. For all you know, I am like this, but when I heard and understood what is meant by this passage, I realized how I affected the people around me, most especially my husband because he has learned my ways and I felt sad because of what I did. My husband is a peaceful and quiet man, until he learned to be like me, a quarrelsome, debating guy, who keeps to discussing issues with me. I realized, its because of what I did. I told GOD in my solitude how regretful I was of my sin and promised not to be contentious and vexing wife.
I hope you learned something with my story.

It is better to dwell in the wilderness, than with an angry, and contentious woman. The question is what makes a woman angry, and contentious? Solomon knew a lot about women, because he had many wives. Jesus commanded husbands to love their wives, as their own bodies. No one will harm his own body, but instead will care for it, as well as provide what it needs. A woman responds positively to love, and will not be contentious or angry with her husband when she can see that he loves her sincerely. So love your wife as Christ loves the Church, and gave His body for it.

This verse is simply advising man to be separated from a contentious and fretful wife whose character can provoke the man to sin and cause him to miss salvation.
