adjective 
  1. maintaining the integrity of the powers of life and love placed within the person and opposing any behavior that would violate one's personal dignity or the dignity of another.
  2. (sometimes considered incorrect) abstaining from sexual intercourse
:Note: is often confused with abstinence. Strictly speaking, chaste means pure and not "abstaining from sex", because married couples are often exhorted to have "chaste sex"--cf. the Vatican encyclical Casti Connubii (Of Chaste Wedlock). Etymology: From Latin castus, pure
