“When I was married at the age of 21 with a wife who was only 11 years old…I wanted to marry again…”

Prabhupada said, “When I was married at the age of 21 with a wife who was only 11 years old, practically I did not like my wife. And as I was at that time very young man, and an educated college student, I wanted to marry again, in spite of my wife being present. Because amongst the Hindus one can accept more than one wife (of course the law is now changed).” – Letter to Gargamuni, 5 May 1968, Allston
