    I believe the husband is seeking to have the marriage annulled as it was not entered into in good faith.

    I don't think this is the first time this has happened either. At least finding that the wife was a man sounds familiar.

    On a positive note Jan's lawyer could negotiate the rights to his story with "Bridezilla" or Maury Povich. :sure:

    I'm sorry but I don't understand how this guy managed to go 19 years and not have figured this out sooner.

    Seeing someone on film, photo's, etc.. is very different from being up close and a personal with them for 19 years.

    So,
    does this make the old saying
    "What you don't know won't hurt you "
    True or False

    I can't begin to imagine what that Jan guy must feel now. Holey Moley !

    This is a sensitive issue... no joke intended there... personally, I think the worst part of this would be the feeling of betrayal.

    I suppose some would feel disgust at finding such a thing out... I can't say what I would feel... but I would think the sense of betrayal would override everything.

    IF someone can hide this from you for that long, what else could they hide? And you also suddenly know that the person you thought you married was someone else.

    I'm sure there are all kinds of prejudice and bad treatment for a transgender person... I'm sure I can't even imagine... but I would think that if you are going to have an honest relationship with someone and get married, you owe that person complete honesty. IF they freak out, then you know you shouldn't get married. IF they accept you then you've got a winner. So there's no good reason to hide something like this in a marriage.

    Casual dating? Personally, I feel the same honesty is owed BUT, I know people lie about all kinds of stuff just to have casual relationships... so I wouldn't be as harsh on someone for being more guarded in a less-serious non-committed relationship as I would a marriage or moving-in type of scenario.
