Wife’s Tinder girlfriend becomes husband after revealing that he was born the wrong sex before marriage
A woman revealed how the friend she met on Tinder became her husband after admitting that he had been sexed the wrong way months before their marriage.
Chase and Elan Storey, from Calgary, Alberta, both identified as women when they started their relationship in 2017.
Last year, the couple tied the knot after Chase, 28, told Elan, also 28, that he didn’t want to be her wife – but her husband.
Chase started his lifelong course of testosterone hormones in September, but he has yet to undergo surgery.

The pair recently started sharing their story on social media, hoping to provide some representation and support to transgender partners.
After leaving a toxic relationship with a cis-sex man, Elan went to Tinder to seek out her first lesbian relationship.
When she matched with Chase, they clicked right away and knew they had to meet.
Elan said Really: “His photo was with maybe six or seven other people … So I was like,” Wow, I don’t even know who this person is or what they look like, but I’m wiping it right. ” Then you matched me at work and we literally talked all day. ‘
Chase met Elan while identifying himself as a woman, but admitted he never quite got comfortable with his gender. Shown before his decision to switch and meet Elan

Chase added, “I just remember going through [Tinder] and I saw her profile … I was like, “This girl is way too beautiful”. ‘
When they first met, Chase told those around him that he was a lesbian, although he claimed he never quite got comfortable with how he identified.
He said, “I tried to discover the transition about 10 years ago or eight years ago. I really didn’t have a great support system back then. It was always a constant in my mind. I was just too scared. ‘
Two years after their relationship, a week before they got engaged, Chase dropped the bomb he thought was born of the wrong sex.

“We were just in bed and I was circling, as if I was thinking about it, thinking,” Oh my god, I don’t want to get married. I want to be your husband. I don’t want to be your wife, “he explained.
With the support and confirmation of Elan, Chase started using his pronouns and the couple later married as husband and wife.
Elan said, “I was not surprised. The dynamics of our relationship have always tended to be a male-female couple. So I wouldn’t say I knew he was going to show up as trans, but it didn’t surprise me at all.
“We didn’t want to wait to get married. We were so impatient. We got engaged in April and got married in August. So we got married before the transition.

“I think I was a little concerned that it might be weird to other people. But for me at the time. it didn’t bother me at all. ‘
Chase has been on his testosterone treatments for nine months now and said the changes that have happened so far are “ really cool. ”
“Physically, of course – I now have facial hair that is a huge giveaway,” he said.
“With the coronavirus and so on, elective surgeries were suspended for top surgery.
“So in the end I would say that hopefully I’ll get a call in the next four months to book a consultation. And that is the only operation I have considered at this point.

“Given the extent and processes of soil management, I don’t think that’s my path.”
The feelings surrounding Chase’s transition between their loved ones are mixed, they say, with some family members confirming Chase’s identity and others unwilling to accept it.
“Some people don’t necessarily immediately adapt to it,” Chase said.
“Some people made it a bit difficult and disturbing.”
Speaking about the comment online, Elan said, ‘There are many YouTube channels or Instagram accounts that fully show the person going through the transition, but it was so hard to find a couple’s journey or how a partner can handle it and deal with it in their feelings. ‘

While the pair say they receive overwhelmingly positive feedback on their posts, they have sometimes faced hurtful comments from online trolls.
“We have one [comment] like, “You will never be a real man,” and I just say, “Cool. Remove.” This is not the space for something like such stupid negative things, “Chase explained.
Elan added, “I feel like we’ve been extremely lucky when it comes to our online presence and our social media platforms. We still receive mostly positive reactions.
“I answer every DM, like, no matter how many we get, we’ll answer them all.”
