I'm 54 year old man with a 38 year old same-sex spouse and we got approved. That's not quite as big an age gap but still a substantial gap.

I think the thing that would look very suspicious would be if your ages were reversed because there is a strong disapproval in many cultures of men marrying significantly older women (or even older women at all).

My husband is 16 years older than me. Not as much of a gap as you - but a gap all the same. His application was approved in four months.

Congratulations! I remember your case from last year or so. Time went by fast.

My husband is 22 years older than I. We were also successful in our application. Just make sure you have a strong application, and by having an 8 year long relationship, it sounds like there would be NO reason for them to question the integrity of your relationship with your husband.

Best of luck to you!

I was just worried because I'm younger sponsoring my older husband but it is definatley for love we both are not rolling in money and we love each other so much it's freaky how things work out I have been with younger men but it's not my cup of tea lol now that he is so faithful and dedicated too me and my kids it makes me love him even more :) I'm hoping for a fast processing but you never know.. I'm holding the faith :) ps we lived together 6 years in Canada but he got excluded for over stay :(, we fought that long for past divorces and I sponsored my ex which I was under an undertaking for 3 years so that's why we waited so long :( so here's too hoping :)

@suzanne, you are so courageous for going through this process twice. I don't know if I could and when I read the appeals thread, my heart breaks for those separated from loved ones.

I know it's a different vo but a friend of mine, which is 25 years older than her husband just received her visa 2 weeks ago with no issues nor interview.
Your relationship is true and there's no one who can tell you it's not.
So keep your hope up and everything gonna be ok.

With an 8-year relationship it should be OK. Just include more proof than the average couple would. If there is an interview, he should be prepared to state you have discussed the age difference and it doesn't matter to you.
