Chapter 5 mentions five men: Sir William Lucas (obviously married); a Mr Robinson (marital status unknown); a young Lucas (a boy, therefore unmarried!); Bingley & Darcy.
Mr Robinson's purpose, in this chapter, is to be the source of information about Bingley's admiration of Jane Bennet's beauty. No need to think about him further, therefore.
I love the dialogue between the young Lucas and Mrs Bennet. The boy has decided how he would spend his time if he were rich (typical fantasy of a youngster, imo), and Mrs Bennet argues that he shouldn't. A silly woman arguing with a boy - says more about her than him. :-)
