Swedish term or phrase: välförhållande
This is again from a play written in 1892. Unfortunately Svenska Akademiens Ordbok has not reach the v's yet and none of the reference material I have checked contains this exact word. Here is the context:

"Sedan först dessa tio qvinnor blifvit belönade för sitt välförhållande kommer räntan att tilldelas den man, som blifvit mest olycklig genom qvinnoprat."

As you may be able to tell, this is a bit tongue in cheek.
