Abbreviations in Virginia Marriages of Northern Neck or Virginia, 1649-1800

In some marriage accounts there are dates with a "b" following the bride's name but I don't know if the "b" stands for "born" or "banns". For example: John Doe (-1695) - Mary Smith, b. 1645 or 1646. It seems unlikely that "Mary" might have been 35-40 years younger than her spouse.
