Man and Wife Are Now Wife and Wife

Gender reassignment changed his life. Did it change their marriage?

Fran and Denise (formerly Donald) have a strong relationship—and it has endured more than the common marital issues, according the New York Times.

The two married in 1980; Donald completed gender reassignment—to become Denise—some 20 years later. Fran is fine with it.

But New Jersey might not be. They worry that their home state will no longer recognize the marriage.

In my opinion, they’re golden. The same person that signed that certificate in 1980 is still in the marriage, so why not let them live in peace? Then again, I think any couple, whether same-sex or not, should have access to an official marriage license. What do you think?
