SB 10.42.11
evam striya yacyamanah
 krsno ramasya pasyatah
mukham viksyanu gopanam
 prahasams tam uvaca ha

Translation:
Thus entreated by the woman, Lord Krsna first glanced at the face of Balarama, who was watching the incident, and then at the faces of the cowherd boys. Then with a laugh Krsna replied to her as follows.

SB 10.42.12
esyami te grham su-bhru
 pumsam adhi-vikarsanam
sadhitartho ’grhanam nah
 panthanam tvam parayanam


Translation:
[Lord Krsna said:] O lady with beautiful eyebrows, as soon as I fulfill My purpose I will certainly visit your house, where men can relieve their anxiety. Indeed, you are the best refuge for Us homeless travelers.

Purport:
By the word agrhanam, Sri Krsna indicated not only that He had no fixed residence but also that He was not yet married.
