I'm 23 (From USA) and my Australian partner is 42. So there's a 19 year age gap. We applied in August 2012 and were approved in April 2013. I have no idea if the age gap made them look at us harder or not, all I know is that we were approved!

My partner is 7 years younger than me, but his certificate shows him as being 12 years younger. Wondering how that will go, guess time will tell. Good to hear of others experiences. I think it is something they take into consideration especially as one member pointed out about if its the woman being the older one.

I just turned 36 and my Pakistani hubby is 22. This being coupled with the high risk country is just about the only thing I've worried about. I'm sitting here putting the application together as we speak and it's a whopping pile. We've been married two years this October and I've lived with him that entire time, plus a year before we were married. Because I'm not a resident of Malaysia (he's here on a student visa and I'm just here on a social visit pass), we can't get joint bank accounts but I'm highlighting everything to show that we share finances, etc.

Another worry of mine is that I have been married before. I am an immigrant to Australia myself, having moved to Tassie with my (then) Aussie husband. We divorced down the track but I got my citizenship. I have been married...*cough*...a few times before him. So my previous marriages worry me that they will look negatively on that.

Its a really interesting question - surely if you can prove the length and breadth of the relationship - shared responsibilities & finance etc then age shouldnt be relevant?

I think I said it earlier in the thread, but I don't think age difference is ever the ONLY factor. But if they already have doubts for other reasons that your relationship is legitimate, it can be one more red flag to them. If the rest of your evidence is compelling (and with three years of living together, you probably have tons, Jarana!) age by itself shouldn't be an issue.
