Well, all of THIS drama just got A LOT more complicated!
Thomas Beatie, otherwise known as the Pregnant Man, is in the middle of a nasty divorce with his wife of nine years, Nancy, and now, it all may go out the window, because an Arizona judge will not even preside over the proceedings because he isn't convinced that they were even legitimately married in the first place!
According to reports, despite the fact that Thomas had a state authorized change of sex before their wedding - and has the state-sanctioned legal documentation to prove it - he is still a woman, at least biologically, and to the judge in question, that makes it a same-sex marriage…and it therefore isn't legal in Arizona!
Beatie, meanwhile, is using his status as a man on his U.S. passport and Hawaii birth certificate to defend the legality of the marriage - and divorce - but no final decision has been made!
Yeesh! This is certainly a complicated one!
We just feel so bad for the poor kids all caught up in this mess!
Here's hoping that whatever happens, a solution with their best interest in this all can be reached!
