Unique court case in Germany
Posted on 5:59pm Friday 27th Jan 2012
An odd court case has arose in Stuttgart, Germany, where a judge must decide on a case of honorable intentions in a situation where a man hired his neighbor to get his wife pregnant. “Employers” Demetrius Soupolos (29) and his wife Traute, wanted a child badly but Demetrius was informed by a doctor that he is sterile.
Demetrius consequently paid his neighbor, Frank Maus (34), $2,500 for the job as he was already married and the father of two children, as well as bearing a resemblance to Demetrius. Maus tried to impregnate Traute three evenings a week for 6 months, a total of 72 different times, although it never worked.
When Maus’s wife objected, he explained, “I don’t like this anymore than you, I’m simply doing it for the money. Try and understand.” After the 6 months, Demetrius insisted that Maus have a medical examination. Upon consulting a doctor it was found that Maus too, was sterile, which shocked everyone bar his wife, who had to confess that Maus was not the real father of their two children.
Now Soupolos is suing Maus for breach of contract in an effort to get his money back, but Maus refuses to give it up because he said he did not guarantee conception, but only that he would give an honest effort. Irony.
