The wide age gap of the couple

Katharine is just 36 while David is 71. There is a wide age gap between the two. In July 2020, David addressed this wide age gap in an interview he gave to the USA Today. He had said:

“Well, we have that musical connection. Look, we have haters on social media, and there’s not a person around that’s not going to make some comment about the age difference. But there are so many things that can bring a marriage down: It can be financial, it can be children, it can be geography, it can be infidelity. And one of them is age difference, but that’s our only problem. Everything else is in line, so it’s not going to bring us down.”
