• MinAge(int $age)
  • MinAge(int $age, string $format)

Validates a minimum age for a given date. The $format argument should be in accordance to PHP's date() function. When $format is not given this rule accepts Supported Date and Time Formats by PHP (see strtotime()).

v::minAge(18)->validate('18 years ago'); // true
v::minAge(18, 'Y-m-d')->validate('1987-01-01'); // true

v::minAge(18)->validate('17 years ago'); // false
v::minAge(18, 'Y-m-d')->validate('2010-09-07'); // false

Using Date before is a best-practice. This rule does not accepts instances of DateTimeInterface.
