Jayapatākā Swami: In New York someone asked such a question and Śrīla Prabhupāda once said that if one is thinking should I be a brahmacārī or should I take gṛhastha āśrama, then in that case, he should take gṛhastha āśrama. But being a brahmacārī, he takes a firm commitment and if one is feeling what should I do, this or that, then they don’t have enough determination to be a brahmacārī. But what your particular difficulty is, you just asked me a general question, and if you write to me a personal letter, and remind my corresponding secretary then I should be able to reply to a specific situation.
