A judge has rejected Emile Ratelband’s request to have his age legally changed from 69 to 49. He petitioned a court last month because he thought a legal age reduction would boost his chances of finding love on Tinder.
Emile said; “I have done a [doctor’s] check-up and what does it show? My biological age is 45 years. When I’m 69, I am limited,” he said. “If I’m 49, then I can buy a new house, drive a different car. I can take up more work. When I’m on Tinder and it says I’m 69, I don’t get an answer. When I’m 49, with the face I have, I will be in a luxurious position.
A judge in the Netherlands ruled; “Mr. Ratelband is at liberty to feel 20 years younger than his real age and to act accordingly. But amending his date of birth would cause 20 years of records to vanish from the register of births, deaths, marriages and registered partnerships. This would have a variety of undesirable legal and societal implications.”
