Love, respect, friendship, and loyalty are the most vital ingredients that make up a happy and lasting marriage. Trust, which is built on honesty is, of course, as equally crucial. Honesty involves bravely and confidently sharing your deepest, darkest secrets to the person you love, knowing that that person can and will accept you no matter what. Perhaps, this is why our parents often reiterate the importance of knowing our partners well before we decide to tie the knot.
Most people would probably agree that lying over trivial matters occasionally is forgivable if our partners only wanted to spare our feelings, but up to what extent is a lie pardonable?
And, what if the person you love so dearly lied about something as significant as his or her gender?
After 19 years of marriage, a 64-year-old Belgian man named Jan found out that his wife was actually born a man. Now, the horrified and devastated husband is seeking for annulment.
Jan married his Indonesian wife, Monica in 1993. He wanted them to start their life in Belgium thus; he immediately arranged and processed her documents. However, the pair encountered difficulties in settling her papers as Belgian courts were doubtful about the authenticity of Monica’s identification. Still, they approved her application despite having doubts about her identity.
For several years, the couple lived a normal life. Monica, who is now 48 years old, became more like a big sister to Jan’s two children, which he had from his previous marriage. He said they have decided not to have any more children because of this. As for a woman’s monthly period, Monica uses sanitary towels whenever she pretends to menstruate “to conceal the truth”.
But, Jan said their relationship only started to change when she got a new full-time job. “Monica began to change very much,” Jan said. “My oldest son saw her sometimes at a nightclub. She began to wear very flashy clothes, those ultra-short skirts or tiny tops, so her abdomen was completely exposed.”
Soon, Jan discovered amorous messages from other men on Monica’s computer, and rumours started to emerge. He confronted her and they got into a heated argument, until eventually, someone had to call the police.
“A friend told me that he had heard that Monica was actually a sex-changed man. I could not believe it. My son heard similar rumours,” Jan said.
“I pushed her against the wall and said, ‘Now I know the truth. Are you a man?’ She then announced that she was born as a boy and that she had been operated on. She was now a woman, and so she did not need to tell me about her past as a man. My world collapsed. That evening came to blows. The police came.
“I feel I’ve been assaulted,” Jan told the Het Nieuwsblad newspaper.
“ I thought she was an attractive woman, all woman. She had no male traits.
“Even during sex, I never noticed anything,” he said.
Jan is currently undergoing psychiatric treatment due to his wife’s shocking revelation. Their annulment is underway, but the Belgian courts did not permit Jan to evict Monica from their family home.
His lawyer, Liliane Verjauw, said,
“That person has deliberately deceived him for years, even scammed. Presumably she has also forged documents used here to get a residence permit. The children, who for years have lived with her, are devastated.”

A Man Suffered from a Nosebleed and What Doctors Pulled Out Was Extremely Shocking.
Doctors at the ER who attended the patient were shocked with what they pulled out.
For some people, nosebleeds are common. If it's too cold, or too hot, expect an epistaxis episode. But what if your nosebleed is so severe that the clot is spread out from your nose to your lungs? Not good. Not good at all.
A Reddit user has posted a photo of a blood clot extracted from the lungs of an unidentified patient. The patient complained of a prolonged case of nosebleed, and when he figured it wasn't going to stop on its own, he decided to seek medical help. Doctors at the ER who attended the patient were shocked with what they pulled out.

“Alien Eggs” Found by Two Friends in the Middle of a Frozen Lake!
Alien eggs? Monsters? Somebody give us a logical explanation what’s that mysterious thing!
Two friends from Utah were exploring a frozen lake when they stumbled upon a mysterious object in the middle of it. Perfectly circular and almost 2 feet in diameter, the mysterious object is full of holes. It has a bluish center or what looked like a nucleus and a cream-gray color all over.
What's even more baffling are the white things inside the holes. They are all uniform in size and shape, and has a slimy or gel-like appearance. The two friends who discovered the "thing" tried to touch it. One of them commented, "Slimy! Gross, gross It feels like a disease!". And the other one said, "You don't just see shit like this man, maybe it's aliens. Maybe it's alien eggs"
