This man divorced his wife after 19 years and the reason will blow your mind
What would you say if you found out that your wife was actually a man? Would it horrify you or would you find it kinky?? This actually happened to a Belgian man, who at 64 found out that his wife, whom he married 19 years ago was actually a man. The man named Jan explained in a local daily how horrified and traumatic he was to find out about such a revelation after 19 years of marriage.
As a husband, the Belgian felt cheated because he was totally unaware that his beautiful Indonesian wife was a man. The girl named Monica was previously a man and now after almost two decades of a near perfect marriage his world fell apart with the shocking truth that Monica was born a boy.
1 For Jan It Was Love at First Sight
Jan and Monica met in Antwerp in 1993. Jan, then 45, had no inkling of the fact that she was previously a boy, simply because he found her irresistible. She was beautiful he said. He also found her extremely feminine when he first met Monica who came to work as a nanny for his sister’s children.
Jan was going through a failed marriage at the time. With Monica, he felt he found his true love, she was not only attractive but had seemingly womanly traits in looks, behavior and mannerisms too. Monica was 27 at the time. Now of course the revelation of her being a man has made him understand why she was always never any good at ironing clothes.
2 She Never Wanted Kids and Remained On the Pill
When Monica and Jan fell in love and planned on marrying, she admitted she never wanted kids. That was ok with Jan as he had already had two kids from his first marriage. Here was a perfect woman for Jan; sexy, beautiful and with no encumbrances.
After their marriage, he exclaimed how Monica was always on the pill. Jan never even noticed the obvious and when she always used lubricants, he never felt the need to question why.
3 She Treated His Children Like a mother
Over the years, Monica had concealed all the physiological changes and symptoms that women undergo from an unsuspecting Jan who was too smitten by her beauty to even notice the farce. Jan never even suspected that his beautiful wife was a man.
However in Monica’s favor, he mentioned how well she treated his children and that she always showered motherly affection on them. She was also a great cook except that she could never iron clothes and now he knows precisely the reason why!
Jan now wants a divorce for the obvious reasons of her being a man. According to Jan “I felt assaulted”. It’s a bit weird to contemplate how the revelation changed Jan’s perception of how he saw Monica because till then she was a beautiful woman to him. The biggest problem in the marriage turning sour was Monica’s infidelity which led to the revelation.
4 Shocking Revelation, the Cat Was Out Of the Bag
Monica’s behavior soon changed. Jan’s suspicions of her infidelity proved right when his eldest son saw her in a nightclub one day. Monica started dressing provocatively and collected innumerous sets of clothes and shoes. She stayed out and chatted with men on the web till late at night.
It was then when the cat was let out of the bag by a cousin of Monica’s who came to visit. When Jan confided in his son, he too said he had heard several rumors of Monica’s real identify.
5 His beautiful wife!! A MAN??? Unbelievable!!
When Jan confronted Monica with the truth, she confessed that she had been born a male and when she was very young she underwent a sex change procedure. Now that must have been some revelation for Jan because it is uncommon that a husband would be thrown such a bouncer like “hey there me!! Your beautiful sexy wife?? I’m actually a man!! His world collapsed!!
Jan was devastated and desperate. He says he was horrified and speechless. Jan applied for a divorce and wanted her out of his house. However in a touch of irony, the presiding judge refused!! Jan and Monica were made to stay together although in separate rooms. Lillian Verjauw, Jan’s lawyer said they will continue fighting as Jan was scammed and cheated by Monica who may have entered Belgium on forged papers.
As for Jan, he will never forgive Monica and wants her out of his life!!
