Desperately Wanting To Get Marry

He is getting older and wants to be married.  He has asked men for their opinions on how to find a wife.  One man responded, "Do not accept a woman who gets angry and/or likes to argue.  To marry such a woman is slow suicide by fidelity."

Another man responded to this comment by saying, "So basically the America's {women} are out."  Another one, "If one's basic needs are met, it should be simple to be content.  If she gets angry about stuff beyond that, will she ever be happy?"

This is amazing advice!  Scripture warns how terrible it is to be married to an argumentative wife yet so many of us are argumentative!  We want it our way and we want it now.  It is a fairly pervasive quality trait in women today.  No wonder so many men are afraid of getting married.

We must not argue.  We must not complain.  We must accept our husbands the way that they are and live in peace.  Paul admonishes us to "Be of one mind, live in peace; and the God of love and peace shall be with you."  {II Corinthians 13:11}

So if there are any young men out there looking for a wife, look for a woman who doesn't argue.  Living a life of peace is a beautiful blessing and a wonderful way to live.

It is better to dwell in a corner of the housetop, 
than with a brawling woman and in a wide house.  
Proverbs 21:9

Better is a dry morsel, and quietness therewith,
 than a house full of sacrifices with strife.  
Proverbs 17:1
