Content [kuhn-tent] or Contented [kuhn-ten-tid] (adj.):
satisfied, contempt, agreeing.
You can’t bribe me with your money, I’m contented with my own.
Contentious [kuhn-ten-shuhs] (adj.):

When the issue became contentious, the negotiation had to be halted until both parties regained their composure.
