Larry Roach of Seminole said "I do" to a woman.
Now he wants to say "I don't" to the same woman. Because she's a man.
After 18 years of marriage and a divorce, Larry's wife, Julia, is now Julio, reports Tampa Bay's Channel 10.
"Once upon a time, I was sleeping with that person. You know, kissing, making love with that person. Yeah, it grosses me out!" Larry told the station.
During their marriage, Julia's voice got lower and she started
growing a beard. She'd started taking treatments for a sex change,
though Larry was unaware.
"I know she was shaving while I was at work because she started getting the stubble. I saw a 5 o'clock shadow and thought, damn, she needs to shave."
After the divorce, Larry found out Julia was now Julio.
But he's paying $1,250 monthly alimony for something he calls disgusting and unnatural.
He doesn't bear Julio ill-will, he told the reporter, but does fear he might bump into her in the men's room someday.
