Wife Discovers Husband Is a Woman After 6 Month of marriage
26-year-old resident of the Indian state of Orissa, discovered that her husband was a woman six months after the wedding,They’d know each other for over a year, chatted, romanced, and finally married on September 14, 2009. For six months they lived happily until one day Minati Khatua found out the man she had fallen in love with was in fact a woman.
He’d been a perfect gentleman during their courtship, asking for her parents for permission to marry the 26 year old Minati Khatua and negotiating a dowry to be paid to him that included a car and 25,000 rupees.
There was no sex between the two which may have aroused the suspicion of many but Khatua was convinced by her husband, Sitakant Routray, that he had taken a vow of chastity and so she relaxed into what seemed to be a happy marriage.
It was after her mother visited for several months that the two became suspicious.
“Ever since, (she became suspicious) I would try hard to find out and confirm his gender but failed repeatedly. However, one day I managed to force open the bathroom door when he was having a bath. My worst fears came true. He was a woman,” said Khatua and reported in The Telegraph, Calcutta.
They separated, with people purporting to be Routray’s family threatening her if she took any action, but finally the young woman last week approached the police.
The damage to her life she has now discovered has been extensive as her family has lost the car, and Routray had taken out loans in the young woman’s name.
