- chastity (of a woman); faithfulness (e.g. to one's husband)
一体、わが国の婦人は、外国婦人などと違い、子供を持つと、その精魂をその方にばかり傾けて、亭主というものに対しては、ただ義理的に操ばかりを守っていたらいいという考えのものが多い。 The women in our country are different from the women from other countries. Many think that it's acceptable for women to have children and devote themselves to them entirely; and, towards their husband, to simply uphold their duty and protect their chastity.
