    It is a man capable to persuade his wife...
    It is a man capable of persuading his wife...

    The second variant is better or the first is wrong?

    Yes. The second variant is better _and_ the first is wrong (bad rhythm). Working with prepositions in English is a difficult process, which is probably only overcome with practice.
