Groom discovers bride is actually a man after wedding

A groom has revealed the wild way he discovered his new wife is actually a man 12 days after their wedding.

A groom discovered his new bride was actually a man 12 days after they married, with police alleging his new ‘wife’ was scamming him.

The Indonesian man, known only as ‘AK’, had been dating his partner Adinda Kanza for a year in person after meeting online.

The couple, both 26, decided to tie the knot and opted for an intimate ceremony at AK’s home in West Java after Kanza told him she “had no family left”.

The newlyweds swiftly moved in together as a married couple, but it did not take long for the groom to grow suspicious of his new wife.

Little did he know, his bride was allegedly in the midst of a sinister plan to steal his family’s assets by pretending to be a woman.

In reality, AK’s new wife had been pretending to be a woman for over a year in order carry out the crime, according to police.

Kanza reportedly avoided intimacy on their wedding night by telling him she did not feel well and was menstruating, according to the South China Morning Post.

This continued for almost two weeks before he found out the truth: his new wife was a man pretending to be a woman for financial gain.

AK had absolutely “no idea” that this was the case, as Kanza always wore a traditional Muslim niqab that covered her face during their dates, while her body was also covered.

The man simply saw this as a sign of her devotion to her faith and not as anything sinister.

Even more bizarrely, AK explained that his new wife “refused” to speak to his family and continued to wear her niqab even at home when it was just the two of them.

The groom decided to investigate and managed to track down his new bride’s former address 12 days after the wedding.

To his shock, he found her parents alive and well residing there. It was then he discovered the truth.

Their son, known only as ‘ESH’, reportedly began dressing in woman’s clothes for the first time back in 2020.

The parents also had no idea that their son was in a relationship, let alone married.

Authorities stated that Kanza “behaved like a woman” and had a “female-sounding voice”.

“If you look at their wedding photos, Adinda looks exactly like a real woman,” police said in a statement.

“He also has a gentle voice and tone, so there was no suspicion at all about him being a woman.”

Police alleged that ESH’s intention was to marry AK in order to steal his family’s assets.

They have now been arrested and are facing fraud charges that could land them behind bars for up to four years.

Authorities suggested that ESH found joy in dressing in women’s clothes while dating men. It was also revealed that ESH had previously dated women.

The investigation is ongoing.

Indonesia is a primarily Muslim country with conservative values, meaning many LGBTQ people struggle to be accepted.

Traditional social norms largely disapprove of homosexuality and gender transitioning.
