When family life should be accepted or rejected

That is the Vedic system – to teach the son and teach the disciple. If one cannot teach the son – the son is disobedient – he should give up his family life. Otherwise, a father is in obligation to teach the son properly. But if it is not possible… Sometimes it so happens as family members, they do not take care. Otherwise, Vyasadeva’s son is expected to become Sukadeva Gosvami. If not, such family connection should be given up. Family life, if it is favorable for advancing Krsna consciousness, should be accepted; otherwise it should be rejected.

From Srila Prabhupada’s lecture on Srimad-Bhagavatam 1.7.8 – September 7, 1976, Vrndavana
