It is quite clear that according to Vedic culture a woman who accepts a paramour or second husband in the presence of the husband she has married is certainly responsible for the degradation of her father's family and the family of her husband. The rules of Vedic culture in this regard are strictly observed in the respectable families of brahmanas, ksatriyas and vaisyas even today; only the sudras are degraded in this matter. For a woman of the brahmana, ksatriya or vaisya class to accept another husband in the presence of the husband she has married, or to file for divorce or accept a boyfriend or paramour, is unacceptable in the Vedic culture.

From Srila Prabhupada's purport to SB 9.3.21

The poet Allen Ginsberg praised Srila Prabhupada thus:
Krsna comes, feeling pain for us
The Lord's form
Why Krsna is called Paramesvara
All-knowing, all-powerful Krsna
Devotees who go away
Temporary relief work: a misleading deviation from our real duty
Srila Prabhupada came to give culture, including dress style
Akrura sees Krsna and Balarama
Read Brahma Samhita very carefully
Vedic religion means varnasrama-dharma
We cannot live under a tree as did Srila Rupa Gosvami
Following in the footsteps of Srila Rupa Gosvami
If sincere, a "bad" devotee is not bad
Purely chanting
