Swiss Court Bans 71 Year Old Woman From Marrying 21 Year Old Boyfriend
Sun 29-05-2016

A court in Switzerland has stopped the marriage of a 71-year-old woman to her 21-year-old lover, after the pair met online and bonded over their love of rap music.

The great-grandmother, who has not made her name public, said the young Tunisian man first contacted her on Facebook when he was just 18.

But a civil registry office in Vaud, west Switzerland, has refused the application, judging it “emotional fraud” intended to gain a visa for the young man.

The retired secretary said she quickly fell in love with her younger boyfriend, and visited him in Tunisia for five days last August.
