BUCHAREST, Romania — A Romanian court has rejected a man’s claim that he is alive after his wife officially registered him as dead, saying that the decision cannot be reversed.

I'm not quite sure how I should react to this.  It would be funny if it wasn't so sad that he is now an ex-human with no income, no home and no job and no prospect of getting one. On the other hand, he brought it on himself by not bothering to contact his family for all those years and overstaying his visa. "Oh what a tangled web we weave when first practice to deceive" (Walter Scott - Marmion).  I wonder if his wife wanted to remarry and that is why she registered him as dead after all those years.

Being pronounced dead in the eyes of the law is a major issue for those living it and repealing it can be extremely difficult. It means you can no longer access your bank account, your employment ceases, you can’t own property, your will might be executed, you cannot get a credit card, nor sign contracts, etc.
