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.
