|Madhya-lila||Chapter 15: The Lord Accepts Prasadam at the House of Sarvabhauma Bhattacarya|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Sri Caitanya Caritamrita Madhya 15.265
patim ca patitam tyajet
patim -- husband; ca -- and; patitam -- fallen; tyajet -- one should give up.
"'When a husband is fallen, one's relationship with him must be given up.'"
This is a quotation from the smriti-sastra. As stated in Srimad-Bhagavatam (7.11.28):
santushtalolupa daksha dharma-jna priya-satya-vak
apramatta sucih snigdha patim tv apatitam bhajet
"A wife who is satisfied, who is not greedy, who is expert and knows religious principles, who speaks what is dear and truthful and is not bewildered, and who is always clean and affectionate should be very much devoted to her husband if he is not fallen."
