When Jane reveals to Mrs. Fairfax that she is engaged to Mr. Rochester, the older woman states:

You are so young, and so little acquainted with men, I wished to put you on your guard. It is an old saying that 'all is not gold that glitters;' and in this case I do fear there will be something found to be different to what either you or I expect.

What does this quotation reveal about Mrs. Fairfax?


She has seen enough of the world to be cautious and slightly jaded.


She does not trust Mr. Rochester's intentions.


She thinks of Jane as a daughter and simply wants what is best for her.


She is envious of the social elevation that Jane will undergo when she marries Rochester.


She trusts Rochester's motivations, but not Jane's.
