Better to live on a corner of the roof than share a house with a quarrelsome wife.
A marriage is designed for completion, not for competition.
There are some relationships that are more adversarial than they are adaptable. It shouldn’t be that way. In fact, if the nature of a husband and wife relationship is quarrelsome, contentious, or filled with strife – that relationship is teetering to collapse.
The Bible speaks of a woman who is notorious and serves as the symbol of the worst kind of wife that a man can have – her name was Jezebel. Her name describes her as an unchaste, defiled, tarnished, or tacky woman. Jezebel means, “without cohabitation.” So, even though she was married to Ahab, a weak man and Israel’s wicked king, Jezebel remained single-minded. She was a worthless whore who did evil in the eyes of God.
Unfortunately, there are men who find themselves in this kind of an adversarial relationship. There are men who are committed to Christ and are with the integrity of their heart pursuing the deep purposes of being a FivestarMan; however, in their own home, their wife is hindering and biting at everything that they’re working toward. They are unevenly yoked – he is carrying the entire load while she drags her feet. She won’t take his lead. In fact, she is striving against him and wants to lead him.
Our Advisor sums it up perfectly, it is better to have a small corner on the deck of the home than to be inside the house hearing her railing against everything.
Remember:Some marriages lack cohabitation. Click To Tweet
