Today’s topic: Revelation Greetings fairest Steve and Shirley, I have reached a dilemma in my relationship. I am engaged to a beautiful, kind and pure maiden. We have dated for three months and she says she wants to wait for sex until marriage, which I respect. However, I accidentally walked in on her changing clothes the other day and that is when I stumbled upon a startling revelation — my fiancee has both male and female genitalia. She says she was born in this state and was afraid to inform me of this. I can fully understand that and I continue to love this woman to the fullest, but it saddens me that after three months of dating, as well as engagement, she wouldn’t trust me enough to let me know. I would greatly appreciate it if you would share your opinion on the matter.
