Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrī Caitanya Caritāmṛta Ādi 15.26
gṛhiṇī vinā gṛha-dharma nā haya śobhana
eta cinti' vivāha karite haila mana
gṛhiṇī — wife; vinā — without; gṛha-dharma — duties of family life; nā — not; haya — become; śobhana — beautiful; eta cinti' — thinking thus; vivāha — marriage; karite — to execute; haila — became; mana — mind.
"Without a wife," Lord Caitanya considered, "there is no meaning to householder life." Thus the Lord decided to marry.
