The meaning of the whole verse

With the preponderance of vice, O Krishna, the women of the family become immoral; and from the immorality of women, O descendant of Vrishni, unwanted progeny are born. An increase in unwanted children results in hellish life both for the family and for those who destroy the family. Deprived of the sacrificial offerings, the ancestors of such corrupt families also fall. Through the evil deeds of those who destroy the family tradition and thus give rise to unwanted progeny, a variety of social and family welfare activities are ruined. O Janardan (Krishna), I have heard from the learned that those who destroy family traditions dwell in hell for an indefinite period of time.

In those days women were thought as god and they were worshiped but they had to be virtuous and good.It was thought that it was a woman who carried forth the tradition and goodness of a family. She is the one who cultivates good habits in the future generation and so she was worshiped. But if this woman fails to be good and allows illegal bonding with other men then that results in the birth of unwanted progeny which destroys the entire family reputation. These unwanted children are also not brought up in the right way since their mother herself has not got the knowledge to know the righteous deeds and these children become unwanted and shunned. So due to lack of proper knowledge about what is right, they tend to grow in a worng way and this affects the generation that comes forth. Also, all the rituals and deeds that have to be carried to satisfy our ancestors is also not performed since the proper tree of the family gets lost. This leads to the fall of our ancestors as well yatra nāryas tu pūjyante ramante tatra devatāḥ (3.56) [v5] “Wherever women lead chaste and virtuous lives, and for their purity, they are worshiped by the rest of society, there the celestial gods become joyous.”
