Recording if birthdate is given

Q: Do you record an age if only a birthdate is given?

Specific Example:  Project: US, Texas—County Marriages 1837–1977 [Part C] ; Page 586 ; First Record.

A birthdate is given for the groom (Sept 23, 1917).  The date of the marriage is given (24 Dec 1939).  From this it can be easily ascertained that the groom's age is 32.

The data entry form for the indexer does not have a birthdate column; rather just an age column.  So, should the calculation be made and "32" entered into the Age column?

Note: This applies to all the records on pages 586-601 of this batch.
