According to Jan, he never saw any male traits on his wife Monica as she was able to fool him by pretending to menstruate. The man even failed to uncover the truth even during sex.

The couple lived a normal family life for many years and it was only when Monica had a full-time job that things started to change.

Moreover, Jan’s son from a previous marriage and a friend had heard rumors that Monica was a sex-changed man. After discovering “amorous messages” from other men in Monica’s computer, Jan finally decided to confront her.

“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 recounted.

Currently, Jan is undergoing psychiatric treatment and had started legal proceedings to have his marriage to Monica annulled. However, the Belgian courts have prohibited him from driving Monica out of their family home.

What is Sex Change?

According to Wikipedia, human sex change is the process in which a person changes sex naturally or through a medical procedure. It may also refer to the process of changing gender role including but not necessarily limited to medical procedures.

Sex reassignment therapy refers to the set of medical procedures undergone by transgender people to change their sexual characteristics.
