The Other Proverbs Woman

Mona felt like she had a few more things to say to her husband; but, to her surprise, discovered that there were no corners on the top of her house!

9 Better to dwell in a corner of a housetop,
Than in a house shared with a contentious woman.

Armed with this knowledge, she then went searching for him in the wilderness...

 Proverbs 21:19 New King James Version (NKJV)
19 Better to dwell in the wilderness,
Than with a contentious and angry woman.

But he was last seen hitching a ride...
Proverbs 27:8 New American Standard Bible (NASB)
8 Like a bird that wanders from her nest,
So is a man who wanders from his [a]home.

10 Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies.

Proverbs 18:22 English Standard Version (ESV)
22 He who finds a wife finds a good thing
    and obtains favor from the Lord.

...after he got over his fear of rain.

Proverbs 27:15 New King James Version (NKJV)
15 A continual dripping on a very rainy day
And a contentious woman are alike;
