] Since I'm now wondering about how Mr. Collins' relative youth (age 25 - see thread below) sheds new light on his character.... Did he know how old Charlotte was when he proposed? Given the information flying around the countryside about people's income, would a woman's age also be common knowledge?
] So just as a random speculation: assuming he did not know her age, would he have proposed to her if he had known that she was older than him?
