Age difference

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

OK...so another thread in the K-1 visa forum got me kind of worried. I am the US citizen (female) and I am 7 1/2 years older than my fiance. We will be interviewing in London as he is from northern ireland. Do you think we have anything to worry about at the embassy in regards to our age?? It has never been an issue for us.
