TEXT 265
patim ca patitam tyajet
patim—husband; ca—and; patitam—fallen; tyajet—one should give up.
"When a husband is fallen, his relationship must be given up."
This is a quotation from smrti-sastram. As stated in Srimad-Bhagavatam (7.11.28):
santustalolupa daksa
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, who is always clean and affectionate, should be very devoted to her husband who is not fallen."
