No, it couldn't:
16 = 9 + 7 , 24 = 15 + 9 = 23 + 1 , 42 = 39 + 3 = 35 + 7 = 33 + 9 = 27 + 15 ....etc.
All the above are examples of even integers expressed as the sum of two odd integers, both of which are prime....and don't let those who'll tell you that neither 1, 9, 14 , 39, 33 or 27 aren't primes: they want to fool you.
