A few is 2. And I'm definitely needing Vietnam specific info here since it is a. a hard consulate and b. not a cultural norm for older women to marry younger men.

I would say there would be NO problems because it is only 2 years old, and even with the culture it is only 2 years old. My wife does say it is a bit strange, but she even said it is only 2 years, and that usually it is not agreed on by the families, so as long as her family accepted you then it is not an issue. As far as the consulate sees the relationship it is very close in years which looks better than a big age difference, now IF........... she was VERY rich and you were not far above the poverty lines there might be an issue, but this would be an issue no matter if you were 2 years older or even 20 years older. Basically, you should not worry about this and worry about other things that are more serious in nature such as photos with different clothing (Ho Chi MInh CO's seem to think people come on vacation with 100 pairs of DIFFERENT clothing) or how many trips, and personal information that they think she should know about you and your work and town. Good luck Jerome and Binh

Maybe they think that we will buy a bunch of clothes in VN and wear them. But they forget that for large people like me, they don't even sell my size. My mother-in-law-to-be on my first trip heard that I was looking for a pair of pants and went to the market and surprised me with some... well after the third trip for a bigger pair, I finally just pretended they fit okay... they didn't have a bigger size :-)

Her mom knows my age and approves. But like when her uncle asked my age, I just said, ba muoi may.... then when he asked more specifically, I just said nhu My Tam... very vague... b/c we don't want them to know... :-)

Scott, you actually believe what Day Que say?

It doesn't even make sense what he says...lets focus on reality here not some made up stuff.

An older women with a younger man is not a normal thing in Vietnam.

This will be an issue to address by the interviwee...IMHO the chance of them thinking about it is 70%.

Unfortunately, they can reject our visa. :-(

But let's hope all our other evidence overwhelms them. :-)

Not your evidence, but I am sure your true love will overwhelms them.

You cradle robber :blush: :blush: 2 years shouldnt be an issue, if they make one of it then there are other reasons, maybe a gut feeling of the CO, and they would then use something trivial like this, but I truly doubt that would ever happen. After all they have many other reasons to nit pick. It might be a cultural norm, but they use that term whenever they dont like something so dont sweat the age, just make sure she is comfortable and knows about you, your work, friends, and home town Jerome and Binh
