Far off to touch the topic yet not even able to give up house and go for the holly life, good householder, or? As for the practice nothing is more needed as strong clinging to the Dhamma, starting with Sila/Vinaya (to possible even arive, get in touch with it). If it might come to a point where all except the Dhamma has given up, then one needs to drop this as well, or better has no more need to carry it on.
(One could, seldom, very seldom, come till Arahata-phala while living an householder life, but latest then it would get impossible and if not joining the Sangha of monks, not possible to go forth, one may not live longer then a week, which of course wouldn't not touch one)
Have I to renounce for cessation of clinging? Yes. That's the path and explicitly one factor of right resolve, wouldn't work otherwise, not even Jhana could be attained, yet not speak of paths and fruits or even final release from all tasks for this world.
Maybe a helpful talk: The Essence of the Dhamma, good householder,and the Buddha didn't say that the path is an easy, burdenless (for desire for 'easy' going is the drive of defilements starting argue that letting go of the path would be the smart short-cut). Clinging strong to skillful, desire it, letting go of unskilful, not grasping after... this is right effort and when trouble arise, looking after it's real root, such as householding while after Arahatship.... useless and only painful as they are two ways and just one out.
