A Quarrelsome Wife - Prov.21.9

Prov. 21:9 Better to live on a corner of the roof than share a house with a quarrelsome wife.
Prov. 21:19 Better to live in a desert than with a quarrelsome and ill-tempered wife.
I have been doing some thinking on this idea. I have a few questions around this.
1. What is a quarrelsome wife?
2. What makes her this way?
3. If she was loved by her husband as Christ loves the church, would she still be quarrelsome?
I think of Christ who loved me first. I love Him because He first loved me. Does this truth hold up in marriage? I think it does. Would a wife love her husband if he loved her first? I think she would. If I love Debbie as Christ loved me, would she still be quarrelsome? I don't think so. I have seen that as a woman is well loved, then she responds in love. She works hard to be in a partnership and not quarrelsome.
What think ye?
