And, when they found out the truth, they finally had sex for the first time, and they loved it!
Marco and Kalala Tergensonen, of Kuopio, Finland, had both been dressing as the opposite sex since their teenage years.
Marco, originally Marcia, 38, had always enjoyed dressing, talking, and acting like a woman.
And Kalala, originally Katu, had always enjoyed cutting his hair and dressing to look like a man.
When the couple fell in love and got married, it just made each of their little games that much more believable.
And, in twenty years, they just never got around to having sex. The subject simply never came up, since neither of them wanted to face the issue.
“I thought Marco wasn’t interested,” says Kalala. “And that was fine with me, because I didn’t want to have sex with him.”
“The same goes for Kalala,” Marco says. “I had no desire at all to make love to another woman. So when she never said anything about it, and never touched me in any sexual way, it made life a lot easier.”
In the future, the couple plans to keep everything the way it was — except in bed.
“I’m still Marco,” says the woman who talks, walks, and works (as a heavy machinery operator) just like a man. “Except when the lights go out. Then I’m Marcia for a little while. This has been the most incredible surprise a person could ever get.”
“And I’m still Kalala,” says the man who wears short dresses and swings his hips as a waitress in a popular restaurant. “Until we get cozy. Then I’m Katu again. It’s great.”
