A WOMAN has been blasted as a gold digger because her husband is 34 years older than she is.
Ronyea Keyaira, now 27, first began talking to Raynaldo, 61, when she was 19 after he slid into her DM’s after spotting a comment she wrote explaining her love for older men.

Despite Raynaldo making the first move, Ronyea is often described as a gold digger and the US-based couple’s relationship has been harshly trolled online.
Speaking to Truly, she revealed: “People say I’m a gold digger because of our 34-year age gap.”
“They say ‘You know he’s going to die soon’,” she added.
The couple, who have been together for eight years, are now married and plan to start a family, all started when Raynoldo slid into her DM’s on social media.
He revealed that Ronyea’s profile said she was interested in older men so he decided to shoot his shot and clearly hasn’t looked back.
The pair connected over their shared values when it came to family, which helped as Raynoldo already had four kids aged 22 to 13 from a previous marriage.
But of course, the large gap often shows how different the two are as Raynaldo explains he’s a typical middle-aged man with a typical middle-aged man dress sense.
Whereas Ronyea is much more millennial and describes herself as a ‘creative artist’ and model.
Unfortunately, the couple explained that not everybody was a fan of their relationship when they got together, including his younger children.
“They were very standoff-ish, but not anymore,” he added.
And it wasn’t just Roynalso’d family who had their reservations, Raonyea’s mum, 45, is 16 years younger than her son-in-law and wasn’t so sure of the relationship at the start.
Sitting down with the couple, Makeesha said: “I wanted to make sure it wasn’t just a fetish, or you getting a young girl.”
“When I met him, I was like, ohh he cute, he don’t look that old,” she revealed and was very excited to finally hear theshe might be a grandma soon.
People were quick to share their thoughts in the comments section of the post.
One wrote: “He loves her, and she loves him, and being financially stable with someone older that is not a crime. They look really well together, and people need to stop insulting them.”
Another commented: “They both seem peaceful. I’m 34 and my husband is 47 and he is an old fool honestly. Not all old guys are nice like this man so do you girl.”
“What is there to find wrong with this couple. Their marriage is delightful,” penned a third.
