Joining Hare Krishna is not for the faint of heart. They are strict vegetarians
My girl-cousin married an Australian, and all his close relatives had come to India for the marriage

My impression is Hare Krishna or similar groups get people to leave their current life as it is and join them in their cause of worshipping the maker on their terms and in their environment.
I think it takes a spiritually strong person to have a family, take care of the family and worship the maker as well. I can't imagine that my maker will love me more if I show my love for him/her by escaping from my current responsibilities and promise to serve him/her only or the leader of the whatever group.
I hope I wasn't too controversial. No attack meant on any person(s) or group(s).
