societal mores

English since birth, Spanish shortly thereafter

I'm wondering what "mores" means in the following context:

You told me of your lover, Rodney, back home.. Knowing your future with him had been predetermined by societal MORES.

Thanks for any info! :)

    You can find the definition in WordReference dictionary by puttingmores in the search box at the top of the page.

    You will also see the thread: sexual mores which contains more about the word mores.

    If neither of these answer your question, please explain in more detail what puzzles you and we will help you if we can.
