Karlen is married, and he lives with his wife and son. His elder son is married and lives with his own family separately.
From an early age, Karlen has been involved in agriculture and farming. He owns a plot of land and some farm animals. Karlen cultivates crops and a large variety of vegetables: potatoes, tomatoes, cucumbers, carrots, radish and greens. He receives a decent income from selling his garden harvest, meat and milk to re-sellers at the cities of Kapan and Kajaran.
