Belgian finds missus was born a MAN after 19 YEARS of marriage

Bloke left crying, gamed

A somewhat upset Belgian has recounted how he discovered his Indonesian missus was actually a born a bloke, but only after after 19 years of wedlock during which the couple enjoyed normal sexual relations.

The 64-year-old hubby, named only as "Jan", fell for Monica, 48, when she was working as an au pair for his sister and later asked her to work as his au pair after his second wife left him. They tied the knot in 1993, although the Belgian authorities were suspicious Monica was not all she seemed.

Jan explained to Het Nieuwsblad (in Dutch):

"I brought her to Belgium. That was not easy. The Belgian courts had serious doubts about the authenticity of her birth and her identity papers, but eventually they accepted it anyway. I thought she was an attractive woman, all woman. She had no male traits."

For almost two decades Monica was a "big sister" to Jan's two kids from his previous marriage.

"Even during sex, I never noticed anything," he admitted.

Monica's cover was finally blown, however.

"A friend told me that he had heard that Monica was actually a sex-changed man," recounts Jan.

Things came to a head when Jan discovered saucy messages from other blokes on his wife's computer. He said:

"I pushed her against the wall and said: Now I know the truth. Are you a man? She then announced that she was born as a boy and that she had been operated on. She was now a woman, and so she did not need to tell me about her past as a man. My world collapsed. That evening came to blows. The police came."

Jan has applied for the marriage to be annulled. His lawyer, Liliane Verjauw, said: "That person has deliberately deceived him for years, even scammed [him]. Presumably she has also forged documents used here to get a residence permit. The children, who for years have lived with her, are devastated." ®
