Based on the fact that she doesn't seem overly desperate about the four girls over the age of 16 (everybody but Lydia at the start of the novel), I believe that Mrs Bennet was probably in her early to mid 20's when she got married. That would make her around 45 - 48 at the time of the novel -- still younger than she is usually portrayed in the adaptations.
