>From my understanding of Thirumangai Azhwaar's story as posted by Dr
V Sadagopan sometime back, his spouse was responsible in a positive
way for Thirumangai Azhwaar's conversion into a Vaishnava.  In the
case of Ramanujacharya, his wife did everything to oppose Upacharam
to Paramahamasas and Ramanuja finally had to get rid of her (pardon
my language but that illustrates the point).  So where does the
question of spousal approval come in this case?
