We have to learn to tolerate and accept all what comes in life while remaining steady in our conciousness always thinking, hankering and striving for the ultimate goal of life.

I agree with you 100% prabhu.
I am not an initiated diciple but I truly believe with all my being in the cult of Chaitanya Mahaprabhu. My devotion grows daily like a wildfire. I am constantly in tears and I cannot control it. I love Krishna so very much. It is beyond my control now. My wife, who I also love , unfortunately does not share my devotion, and I am not trying to force it on her, gave me a difficult time a few nites ago. I was very upset the next day. The verse form Bhagavad Gita that played over and over in my brain was about the devotee being steadfast in hard times and good times, both being a product of the material nature.

My dear Prabhu,
Hare Krishna, Jai Shrila Prabhupada, Jai Shrila Gaurangapada.
PAMHO. All glories to Bhaktajana.
I share with you about the family matters. I am sharing the unmatch between husband and wife in the devotional service after more than 25 years of being married. There are quite a few that has very little match to no match( between the couple,young or old) at all in the common bond in the devotional service. Did't people like Mirabai of Rajastan and Narsi bhagat of Gujarat which were fo far advanced in devotional service had this problems? If they had this material problem who are we to compare with these Exalted personalities? I have to draw my strength from others in devotional service who are advanced in Bhakti. Shrila Prabhupada too had very same concern. It had worked out very well in all the cases, not accordingly the way we prefer or our liking could be very selfish. It will work out to the best by Krishna's arrangement. My understanding about this unmatch situation is due to our past karmas which present the unpalatable situation. It is advised to ride this out and wash it without blowing our anger or handling in the way which would create more bad karma to deal with later.
I would be highly interested to hear Shri Gaurangapada's view/advise in this. I know this is a common subject for many Krishna devotees.
