A MARRIED couple of more than 40 years have fought back trolls who say the young woman is only after a visa and his money.
They say love knows no age — and one couple who preaches that motto is Dave and Jackie, an American duo with a 42-year age gap.
Jackie, 27, is originally from the Philippines, has been married to Dave, 42, for a few years, and regularly takes to TikTok to share snaps and videos of the pair.
But despite claiming to be in love, not everyone believes Jackie has pure intentions.
Since the average age difference between straight couples is 2.3 years – the man is usually the older one – the TikTok-famous duo has left many doubts about the authenticity of the relationship.
Under almost every clip Jackie and her 69-year-old husband have posted are hundreds of comments from trolls who believe the young woman is only married for the money and green card.
But despite the criticism and negative remarks, the couple, who have more than 32,000 fans throughout their journey, continue to share brief clips of their romantic history.
There are plenty of sunny hikes, plenty of food, and countless videos of them dancing together.
Followers and other social media users will also know that Jackie and Dave aren’t afraid to poke fun at the age difference, with the pair even hitting the shops to stock up on “grandpa’s diapers.”
Dave hits back at trolls who think the age gap is too big: “I’m 69 years old. And for us it makes no difference.”
Her TikTok profile, which has more than 245,000 likes in total, even says: “Love is endless, and love has no age limit.”
There are tons of comments people have left — but they’re not all negative, as there are plenty that are supportive of the relationship as well.

“I love you, you are so nice and friendly, you seem so happy. One of my favorite couples,” wrote one fan.
Another agreed, saying: “Age is just the number as long as you love each other you two are so blessed to have each other.”
“I can’t believe people are still bothering you about your age difference. You are a beautiful couple. Does not make a difference. Right!!” wrote a third.
A woman who was also in an age gap relationship added: “Happiness is the key… It’s not everyone looking for a visa, as they say… Am in my 30s, my husband is in his 70s and we are happy.” ‘
