This question is inspired by a story in a sci-fi short story collection... Would transceptance (?) even be a factor if your long-time partner/girlfriend/boyfriend/spouse/SO (be you in a hetero or homosexual relationship) had pretty well *magically* changed from the gender he/she had been born into just one fine day? Like you literally went to work or grocery shopping, and when you came back he/she was now a girl/guy...
Probably one of the most compelling argumuments I've heard so far *for* gay marriage is that you should love the person, and not just his/her genitals, and thusly you should be able to marry whomever you want, regardless of relative gender... but, would that carry anyone's relationship through *this* scenario?
I would definitely have some serious trouble with it, tbh 😔
Really, honestly just arbitrarily curious... I swear this isn't coming from a place of hate...

It doesn't sound transphobic to me, don't worry. I know that if my boyfriend's gender identity changed and he wanted to use different pronouns and be my girlfriend instead, I definitely wouldn't care, and if I came home and his sex had changed, sure, I'd be surprised but it wouldn't mean that our relationship would end. We'd need to have a discussion about it and talk everything through first, but ultimately I love him very much no matter what gender or sex he is and I wouldn't leave him over something that doesn't bother me.1
