Occupation "Gentleman" on UK Marriage Records

I have come across a few Marriage Records where the bride or groom's father's occupation was listed as either Gentleman or A Gent. In none of these cases was the person a Gentleman in an upperclass sense of the word. Can anyone offer a learned explanation?
