The age difference can be a factor in the CO's decision, although it won't be the sole reason for a denial.  The very best evidence you can provide is that of time you have actually been together.  Time actually together is the best cure for this red flag.

factors about age:

how much of an age difference?

Is USC retired or close to retirement as the following are issues (like income is less after retirement and she could not add u to medicare health care)

why both of those important u may not be able to find a job fast and need her income and insurance benefits

 

the other factors that are important for your  spouse visa are:

the amount of time you have spent together 

your work experience

your education 

your age (to many prospective employers)

your knowledge of her, her family,  her past marriage(s),  the area she lives in (all things about her)

and from experience of Loves to teach  ( VJ member from your embassy )  "how many times you or she was married and if divorced,   are divorce papers certified by court

Concentrate on quality evidence

That isn't evidence of time actually spent together, it is shows continued communication.  I know you have been together in Philippines and at least once in Pakistan.  You will need quality evidence at the interview.  

I'm not sure the moneygram receipts will be a positive factor. That could raise questions.

Good luck.  I hope it goes well for you.

Based on what I have seen in some other cases, I would be prepared to answer questions about:

 

How did you meet?

Age gap? Is it normal in your culture?

Religion differences?

Did you marry on the first time together?

 

Good luck.  @JeanneAdil gave you some really good information above.

What's the age gap? While age gap doesn't matter in some countries, COs are aware that men marrying much older women is not common in countries like Pakistan, India, Nepal. Be prepared to scrutinized a bit more on that. 
 

How often have you two met in person before and after marriage?
