When a man loves a woman, it doesn’t matter if he was born a she and she was born a he — just ask Mark and Jessica Lynn Cummings.
The Florida lovebirds met in 2011 and are getting hitched next year – after each changed genders. Muscle-bound Mark was born a girl with wavy brown hair and a pretty smile called Maritza Perdomo, while blonde Jessica was once a tow-headed boy named Shawn O’Donnell.
But Mark, 49, a dedicated weightlifter and occupational therapist, transitioned in 2003 and is now legally recognized as a man.
And Jessica, 39, underwent an operation to remove her testicles earlier this year and is now officially a woman who is already using her future hubby’s surname.
There's something about this story that bothered me. I couldn't put my finger on it at first, but finally figured it out.
It's the age difference. What is a 49-year-old doing with a 39-year-old? Doesn't he realize that when he was a senior in high school, she was only in second grade? Doesn't that disturb him in the least?
People who rob the cradle just seem a little perverse to me, that's all.
