Man Shocked to Learn That His Wife of 12 Day Is Actually a Man

A young Indonesian man recently got the shock of his life after learning that his wife of 12 days was actually a man disguised as a woman.

Earlier this week, Indonesian media reported the strange case of a 26-year-old man referred to only by his initials, AK, who ended up calling the police after finding out that the woman he had married only 12 days prior turned out to be a man in disguise. The man allegedly met his bride-to-be on the internet and after hitting it off, the two decided to meet in person. AK admitted that he fell in love with his future wife the moment he saw her for the first time, and after meeting cordially a few times, he got the courage to ask her out on a proper date.
