Question: Duties in Family Life
1. What should be the mood of the parents if they plan for a Krishna Conscious child? and
2. What are the duties of a husband towards the family if the wife is not very cooperative in following spiritual life?
Answer: Deliver Your Dependents
Parents who want to have a Krishna conscious child should first see that they are solidly situated on that pathway back to home, back to Godhead. In other words, they should have both taken shelter of a bona fide spiritual master and be fully surrendered to following his instructions. In this way when they try to have a child Krishna will send a very special soul to take shelter of their association for being delivered from the cycle of birth and death.
The husband's duty is to deliver the wife back to home, back to Godhead. So if she is not very co-operative for spiritual life, he should very patiently and very compassionately try to attract her to the superior lifestyle of Krishna consciousness. Sometimes we have seen that the reluctant wife turns around and becomes more Krishna conscious than her husband.
