Man paying alimony to a man

Forida news:
Miami, Fl (AHN) - A man is asking the court to stop making him pay alimony to his ex-wife because she is now a man.

Lawrence Roach, of Seminole, Florida told Bay News 9 that his former wife had a sex-change operation and is now living as a man.

He wants the court to allow him to stop paying the monthly $1,200 monthly alimony payments.

Roach said, "This isn't right. It's humiliating to me and degrading. You know, I'm a man and I don't want to be paying alimony to a man. If you can't be married to a man legally, how can you legally pay alimony to a man?"
Alimony stops if the ex-wife remarries, but I don't know about this. Before no-fault divorce, a spouse wanting a sex-change would surely be grounds for divorce.
