I am no sure the woman mentioned is a transsexual to be called “Filipino wife” by the Star.

“Filipina wife” should be used in formal English if the woman is a real girl.

A MALAYSIAN suspected that his missing Filipino wife had committed bigamy after he found wedding photos of her with another man on Facebook, China Press reported.

The man, known only as Su, said his 32-year-old wife also changed her status from “single” to “married” on the social website.

The 39-year-old jobless man said he had been monitoring his wife’s Facebook account after she went missing two years ago.

“I have tried to call her but she refused to pick up my calls,” he said. “To make matters worse, she called me recently to tell me that she does not want a divorce,” he said.
