    Wife says transsexual married her for money

    A WAR of words has erupted in the case of a woman who discovered her former husband was transsexual only after she applied to annul the marriage.

    Chua Soo Fong, 47, accused her former husband of being more interested in her money than her, to the extent that he gave all kinds of excuses to avoid sex with her, Lianhe Wanbao reported.

    She also raised suspicions that she was not his first "target", as his two former wives were also accountants.

    Meanwhile, Chai Woon Wuy, 50, told the paper that he lost interest in his then wife because his fortunes saw a decline after they got together, she often made him "lose face" in public and treated his parents badly.

    Ms Chua said they only held hands and kissed for the seven years they were dating, even after they moved in together. Then, she was glad she had found a real gentleman.

    But after getting married in 2009, when she was more than willing, Mr Chai began to make excuses.

    He would say he was tired, sleep in the living room or even sleep in his parents' room. He even told her to "find someone else" to have sex with.

    Less than two years later, Ms Chua applied to annul the marriage. That was when she found out he was once a woman named "Margaret". The annulment was eventually granted.

    After the shocking revelation, she was so distraught she even lost her job, she said.

    Mr Chai said that he did not find his former wife attractive, and married her because he pitied her.

    "Once I dated her, I lost my job. Then after we got married, she became unreasonable, shouted at me in public, causing me to lose face," he told Wanbao.

    He also claimed Ms Chua bullied his parents.

    As for his habit of dating accountants, he said that that was a coincidence. He added that he has moved on, and is now dating another woman, who is not an accountant.
