Not really. Remember, Natsu, Erza, Gray, etc, all started working as wizards when they joined the guild. Even though they joined at roughly ages 10-12. Erza and Mirajane were hitting S-class at probably ages 15-16, if not sooner, and Cana's been up for S-class since she was 13 or so. Plus the mention on Cana's guild card that the drinking age is 15.

The bottom line is that Fairy Tail's taken the shounen standard of "it's normal to have pre-teens/kids barely into puberty running around beating the crap out of stuff" to it's logical conclusion and set the age of adulthood at 15. So it wouldn't be all that surprising for Lucy's mother to have worked as a mage for a few years, then retired to do something else. Heck, Mirajane worked as mage from ages 13-17, making S-class in the process, then retired after the incident with Lisanna, and took up barkeeping at the guild instead.

The only odd thing in this is the fancy clothing Lalya was wearing and setting the parting with Caprico took place in. By the description that occurred when she was 16, which doesn't really match with the modest look of the merchants guild she joined afterwards.

I didn't mean too young to be a mage. I meant too young to retire (unless she also had an accident) and, mostly, too young for her husband to have gone from poor to filthy rich.

Though if she was from a wealthy family, and married (out of money, instead of into) only after quitting the mage business, it would indeed make some sort of sense.

The young age of the characters always did have a way of bothering me; mainly because the utter lack of older members in the guild... i mean considering the guild has been around long enough to have had 3 masters there should be plenty of mages who are in 30's, 40's and possibly 50's... and yet out of all the mages we've met in fairy tail only 4 mages are over the age of 30 and the vast majority are below the age of 20.

actually i think she was 19... she retired at 16, and gave away her keys at 19

Layla had the excuse of having some kind of poor health that forced her to retire...
But we are talking about people who are only in their 30's and 40's...

Well it seems the chapter is already out and that spoiler summary is dead wrong.
Kana is apparently being something of a bitch when it comes to wanting to become S-class... hell even she finds the grave first she won't become S-class as its obvious that Makarov would disqualify her for abandoning her friends; a serious lack of priorities... She's gonna need an unbelievably good reason to become S class to save her

Also that has to be one of the most convoluted riddles ever...

It's not like Master is waiting for Kana at the end of E... So why the hell did she do that? After all if no one witnesses her "win" then how can she become an S-class.

Something's not adding up with Kana's actions and her desire to win IMHO. She's either gone crazy or she has an agenda beyond what we know, after all defeating your teammate isn't part of the contest, so why do that here and now (defeating the other teams maybe... but not your teammate)? Logic dictates that she needed Lucy to witness her victory to become the S-class mage.

Plus we can now call Lucy's hand being the hand seen in Charlie's vision.

Yeah. The Master's officially suspended the exam. So what does she want? Is Zeref "the one she wants to meet"?

Most likely answer would probably be Lucy's own objections to prioritizing finding the grave in the middle of an exam, hence why Kana took her down. But yeah, I seriously don't understand anything Kana's doing, hopefully we'll get an exposition but things aren't looking good for Lucy right now

So Mira won't be the dead one. That hand of Lucy's is the same one from Charles vision right? I might be disappointed if no one in FT dies when this arc is over.

Hmm,ok...did anyone get Ultear's power explanation, because I totally missed it. Also I kinda thought her magic doesn't work on humans?
Anyways, Kana sure got some handy magic there Too bad she just left Lucy in a ditch for phatboy to play with At least Charlie's vision came true without anyone dying...as for her motives, I think she knows about the part that follows and just wanted to keep Lucy out of it.

She makes balls and hits you with them.

Seriously tough, she made the alternate futures of her ball come into being and then made them all share the same future. The one where they hit Natsu.

btw correct me if I'm wrong but isn't this the first time Natsu is fighting a girl? Erza doesn't count.
