Should one accept a woman from a fallen family?

विषादप्यमृतं ग्राह्यं अमेध्यादपि काञ्चनम् ।
नीचादत्युत्तमा विद्या स्त्रीरत्नं दुष्कुलादपि ॥

Nectar (if available) is worth obtaining even from poison; 
Gold is worth taking even if it lies in filth; 
Knowledge is worth receiving even from a person of lower social status; 
A woman of beauty and character should be accepted even if she is from a fallen family.

Here the Subhashita tells us that
Family background is meaningless as long as the family member is worthy.

1) Milk, Sugar, Curd, Ghee & Water are the 5 Nectars of this world.
2) Amongst metals, I am Gold - Lord Krishna in Prakrit Gita
3) Knowledge is Power
