Images of James and Jan Morris

James Humphrey Morris married Elizabeth Tuckniss in 1949 and they had five children. When James underwent sex reassignment surgery in Morocco in 1972 after several years of hormone treatments, the couple was forced to divorce according to British law. They continued to live together and in 2008 remarried in a civil union ceremony.
