Giriraj Swami addressed participants on the opening day of the Couples’ Weekend facilitated by Karnamrita dasa and Arcana-siddhi dasi in Durban from December 18 to 20. “In materialistic marriages generally there are too many troubles and frustrations because the basic principle for both the husband and wife is their own personal sense gratification. Therefore there is inevitable conflict and divorce petition. But in a Krsna conscious marriage the basic principle is for both husband and wife to serve Krsna nicely and to help the partner advance in spiritual life. In this way both the husband and wife are true benefactors for one another and there is no question of any serious conflicts or separation.” (Srila Prabhupada letter)
