HOUSEHOLDER YOGI LAHIRI MAHASAYA

Lahiri Mahasaya was an Indian yogi, guru, and disciple of the Kriya Yoga master Mahavatar Babaji. He revived the yogic science of Kriya Yoga to the public. He was a householder: marrying, raising a family, and working as a government accountant, he lived with his family in Varanasi rather than in a temple or monastery.

He became known in the West through Paramahansa Yogananda, the author of AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF A YOGI. Yogananda noted his “Christlike life” and considered him a Yogavatar, or Incarnation of Yoga.

The point I am making with this post is that Lahiri Mahasaya was a householder and people can be married and be quite individually and mutually advanced spiritually as householders. I took this from Wikipedia.
