D7 Visa Marriage Certificate age

I was recently told that the marriage certificate I submit for a D7 visa needs to be a fresh Marriage certificate less than 6 month old.

Is this correct or will I be ok if I submit the one I have that has an apostille attached to it but is a few years old?

We submitted a copy of our original marriage certificate from 1991 without an apostille and it was accepted. The apostille was only needed for our FBI background checks.
