The age difference can be a red flag, but in and of itself would not be the sole reason for a denial. There would need to be a lack of evidence regarding a bona fide relationship between the petitioner and the beneficiary.
If they were denied, prior to the interview, then the reason is likely that there wasn't enough evidence supporting that they met.
If they were denied, at the interview, then the reason is likely that the beneficiary didn't answer the basic questions well enough and/or that there wasn't enough evidence of an ongoing relationship to satisfy the requirements.
You need evidence that you met in person, face-to-face in the last 2 years, such as:
- passport stamps
- boarding passes for plane/train/bus
- photos of you together in various places and times
- ATM receipts placing you in the beneficiary's country
- evidence of you cohabiting together (hotel reservations/leases/rental agreements with both your names)
If it's after the interview you need evidence of your relationship after you files such as:
- Phone logs/Text Logs
- Chat/IM logs/Skype logs
- Letters/packages sent in the mail
- Passport stamps if you visited again
- Photos of you together (if you visited again)
