The long-cherished dream of a trans-woman and her husband turned to reality on Friday when

their marriage was officially registered. Their joy knew no bounds as the day coincided with

Valentine's Day. Twentyfour-years-old Surekha had married Manikandan, an

autorickshaw driver, in 2018 but could not register the marriage under the Hindu Marriage Act, which classifies the

bride as a woman. The couple approached the district collector and after

verification, it was found that the term bride was applicable for transgenders also, as was ruled by Madras High Court in

April last. After this, things moved swiftly and the registration

department agreed to register the marriage and accordingly both got registered at Vadavalli sub-registrar office here and

received the marriage certificate. The couple is happy now that their marriage has been

accepted legally by society.
