TEXT 265
patiṁ ca patitaṁ 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 smṛti-śāstram. As stated in Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam (7.11.28):
santuṣṭālolupā dakṣā
dharma-jñā priya-satya-vāk
apramattā śuciḥ snigdhā
patiṁ tv apatitaṁ 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."
