NEW BIBLE FROM WACK BISHOPS!
#69
mulier in Latin connotes a wife by the fact it means an older woman (i.e., a woman past the marrying prime) as opposed to femina which means a woman in general. Virgo is used for a young woman not yet married.  Puella used for a pre-pubescent girl, or as a "pet name" for a wife.

mulier -eris f. [a woman; a wife , matron].

virgo, virginis f. maiden, young woman, girl of marriageable age; virgin, woman sexually intact;

puella f. girl, (female) child/daughter; maiden; young woman/wife; sweetheart; slavegirl;

The problem with messing with the translations is that the Fathers understood the implications and uses of the words.  To call a married or betrothed woman a "virgo" would almost necessarily mean she was a virgin.  It would make no sense to call a married woman that otherwise.  For that one would use mulier or uxor.  If they meant a young wife in an affectionate or familiar manner, they would use puella.

If it says mulier, it generally implies a wife who is the head of a household.  I.e., a matron.  In proverbs, the context is clear that she is talking about a good wife and mother.

Virgo as young woman undermines it because we don't have a notion in English of mulier vs. virgo vs. etc. except as "maid" and "matron", and to us a young woman is not necessarily a virgin and an older woman is not necessarily married.  Those were the default understandings back then.

Also, the Protestants who want to deny the virginity of Mary and say, for example, James was the brother of Jesus claim the appropriate translation is "young woman".  Probably this translation is offered as false ecumenism.

It's bullcrap from the Modernists.
