According to this answer : What is the real concept of brahmacharya?
Wife is the supreme deity required to be worshipped by the husband .. In the body of the wife reside all the devatA-s. Likewise, the gArhapatyAgni which is verily brahmarUpa also resides in her body. Hence, she should be worshipped always by the husband. Thus declare the veda-s. Hence whosoever worships his wife & and gArhapatya, attains all one can aspire for in this world and is worshipped in brahmaloka after his death.
So it seems from the answer that a bachelor or a widower is Godless.So is marriage just the way for worshipping the deities as per the vedas and a bachelor and a widower has no God?
I have never read in the biography of any saint that wife is the supreme God by the way.What I have read is 'stri-deva' (one to whom wife is the highest God) is a denigrating term according to the Purana-s.
But I am interested in knowing the truth.
