Texas isn’t the only place that needs to figure out its marriage laws to deal with unions not fitting the male-female prototype. In Indonesia, where gay marriage illegal, a woman stands accused of playing a dude to marry her female partner.
Oh, those bitter in-laws!
A man has gone on trial in Indonesia accused of falsifying his gender identity in order to marry a woman. Doctors say Alterina Hofan has the rare condition Klinefelter’s syndrome, where a male has an additional X chromosome that makes him look more like a woman. He says he officially changed his identity papers to show he was a male but his wife’s parents have accused him of document fraud.
[…] Mr Hofan’s mother told the BBC that when he was born, doctors said he was a girl, so he was registered and brought up as such. But when he was two years old he began to develop male genitalia and had always behaved like a boy, she said.
