Tess of the d'Urbervilles Chapter 39

Angel goes to his parents' home after deciding to go to Brazil to try his hand at farming there and pretends that his travels are the reason that Tess is not with him. His mother is upset that she won't meet Tess before Angel leaves for Brazil and keeps telling Angel that it doesn't matter how uneducated his wife is because as long as she is pure and virtuous, she'll be a good wife to Angel. He curses Tess for making him lie to his parents and say that she is pure and virtuous.
