    Default Belgian wants marriage annulled as his wife was born a boy

    Belgian discovers his wife used to be a man after 19 years - Telegraph

    One of the things the sex change people go on about is their desire to re-write history and have documents changed to show that someone who has had a sex change was always of that sex to avoid embarrassing situations. However can someone demand an annulment if their partner has in effect lied to them about a past sex change? She was his former au pair whom he married. When the marriage got rocky he found out she was born male. The husband is now undergoing psychiatric treatment. Personally I think this is a cop out. He was happy with when things were going well and this sounds like an excuse to get separated. It will interesting to see how this pans out all the same.

    there was another case where a husband sued a wife because they had an ugly kid. Apparently the wife had loads of worked done to make her look more attractive. I think he won. In the case above, damn straight, what if he wanted kids and "she" just strung him along?

    Might be of prurient interest to you, but certainly of no relevance to Irish Politics, so why post it here?

    Sounds like a straighforward open and shut case to me.

    I'v just finished watching the 6 ep's of Sky Atlantic's HIT AND MISS. IT is one of the best TV progs I have seen for awhile.

    HIT AND MISS, from Paul Abbott, creator of Shameless and State of Play, is a high concept and ambitious new series that follows ChloŽ Sevigny as Mia, a contract killer with a secret: shes a transgender woman. Mias life is sent into a tailspin when she receives a letter from an ex-girlfriend dying from cancer revealing that Mia fathered a son eleven years ago.

    It's general discussion, sport has nothing to do with politics either.

    A lot of people want the result of the last general election annulled, because the people they elected turned out to be a collection of people who were born donkeys.......
    Coveney's ambition is the be Ireland's next EU Commissar and Ireland will pay a price as he builds his CV to position himself sufficiently loyal to the nEU empire.

    Dont know about Belgian laws but wouldnt it be illegal for this person to marry in the first place?

    Even though the woman/man had a sex change wouldnt they still legally be considered a man?

    Nothing will motivate the lazy / apathetic / Americanised / west-British types to embrace their culture and the Irish language.
