YMMV

Why would this be an issue? Are you in a bonafide marriage if so great. I am 26 years older then my husband went through Nigeria. No issue. If it's real and no issues you should have no problems.

 

3 years is hardly an age difference.

Marriage on the first visit a problem . I love my wife so much . 

Marriage on the first visit---It can be a red flag considering the home country is Ghana.  But if you have plenty of face-time and supporting evidence, will overcome that.

Spending as much time together, before the interview, will overcome issues like that. Being listed as a beneficiary on her life insurance, being on her credit card or checking account will help too.  Research co mingling.

Ghana is a tough consulate.   Just doing/ having the minimum isn't going to make it easier.

What is the best thing to do now if any idea 

Have more visits. Show proof of a bonafide marriage such as having each other as emergency contacts at work, have wills created if you don’t yet, life insurance , hopefully she filed taxes as married, photos of you together with family and friends, joint checking accounts or having you be an authorized user on credit cards

@E/R Just make sure you have lots of evidence to prove you have bonafide marraige and be ready to convince the the CO. Marriage on first visit can bring up questions by CO but that on itself cannot disqualify you. He/She will look at the totality of the evidence before them. USEM is tough but with preparation and thoroughness you can overcome it. Good luck.
