Transgender man denied divorce

Posted: Updated:
PHOENIX (AP) -

A transgender Arizona man whose divorce request was rejected after his marriage was declared invalid plans to keep trying to get his 9-year union dissolved.

Thomas Beatie says Tuesday that he wants the three children to whom he gave birth to know their parents' marriage was legitimate.

Thomas Beatie says a judge's decision last week to reject his divorce request was a swipe against his identity and could cause problems for him down the road if he decides to remarry.

He plans to appeal the ruling.

Thomas Beatie was born a woman and later underwent a double-mastectomy and began hormone therapy to become a man.

But he retained female reproductive organs and gave birth to three children.
