In response to ch. 27 supports what you say, marsha, written by greg on October 05, 1997 at 22:08:03
] i just finished ch. 27 of this reading marsha, and i see that rochester says "mrs. fairfax may indeed have suspected something, but she could have gained no precise knowledge as to facts". it appears she at least didn't know that bertha was his wife. i feel that the answer to your original question is still basically the same, however: she was trying to put jane on her guard, and thought the circumstances didn't bode well for "love".
Yes, this is very possible. After all, it is usually better when like marries like and in Mrs F's simple view of the world (she would not understand spiritual affinity very well, I think) they are very much unlike!
