There is a habit that is so unhealthy for any marriage. Do all you can to avoid it like a plague! It’s called Nagging!

One of the persons you should respect when he is offering marital advice is King Solomon. You will never be able to break his record. With a thousand women in his harem, no living human being has been able to break that record.

He was simply in a class of his own when it comes to women. He had them all and he would know a lot about them.

So he gave a piece of advice in the book of Proverbs.

It is better to dwell in a corner of the HOUSETOP, than with a brawling woman in a wide house.

Pro 21:9 (KJV)

The Message Translation puts it this way:

Better to live alone in a tumbledown shack than share a mansion with a nagging spouse.

Pro 21:9 (MSG)

So, nagging can make a man relocate from his bedroom to the penthouse!

But that was in verse 9.

Suddenly in verse 19, like someone just hit with a revelation or who just woke up from slumber, he said

It is better to dwell in the WILDERNESS, than with a contentious and an angry woman.

Pro 21:19 (KJV) 

He must have remembered another one of his wives!

Here, he says nagging from an angry woman will not only drive a man to a penthouse but to a desert, a wilderness!

Nagging can be irritating and frustrating. The Message Translation says here

A nagging spouse is like the drip, drip, drip of a leaky faucet;

Pro 27:15 (MSG)

If most men were sincere, they would tell you they often keep late at night and stay longer at work to avoid the nagging that might be waiting at home!

A wise wife will refrain from nagging!

Let me conclude by giving you a Dictionary definition of nagging

Adjective; continually faultfinding, complaining, or petulant: persistently recurring; unrelenting:

May God grant you more understanding!

I will cooperate with my spouse at all times.

Pray to God for a patient spirit.

Prov 21:9 (AMP) It is better to dwell in a corner of the housetop [on the flat oriental roof, exposed to all kinds of weather] than in a house shared with a nagging, quarrelsome, and faultfinding woman.

Quit nagging your spouse!

Prov 21
