Hare Krishna, I have heard various things from senior devotees (the only two in my area) about how to handle this situation. One says that we should feel free and open to ask the guru about any question even if it is about our family life etc... the other says that we should not bother the spiritual master unless we have a specific question about things like sastra or how he wants a specific service done. Which is more accurate. I want to contact my guru and ask his advice on some important personal matters but do effect my spiritual life, but i also know he is busy and do not want to bother him or take him away from his service. (i dont have a large number of god brothers and sisters so it is common for him to respond personally within a few days.) Thank you all for helping me on this etiquette question.
