Quoting Quiverfull: Being a Stay At Home Mom Stops Affairs?

by Von Ohlman from True Love Doesn’t Wait – Titus 2 vs Prov 31

A second meaning of ‘keeper at home’ is brought forward by Matthew Henry and coupled with ‘chaste’. The woman who wishes to commit adultery, even just a ‘flirtation’ will have a hard time doing it sitting at home with just her children and husband. In this sense a ‘keeper at home’ again has a very literal, if euphemistic meaning: to keep one’s sexuality limited to ones ‘home’, ie husband.
