Sterile man pays neighbor to get wife pregnant – and then things get weird!
April 2, 2009
(ChattahBox) — A story from Stuttgart, Germany, that could make Jerry Springer and Maury Povich jealous. Things started innocently enough with Demetrius Soupolos, 29, and his former beauty queen wife, Traute, wanting dearly to have a child but after trying themselves for sometime a doctor’s visit reveals the husband is sterile.
Soupolos, gets the bright idea to hire his neighbor, Frank Maus, 34, to impregnate his wife, who has reservations about such a pact but goes along with the idea after some convincing. Neighbor Maus is seemingly a happily married father of two children, who actually as a bonus resembles Soupolos, so they make the daring offer. Maus’ wife objects, but he convinces her saying, “I don’t like this any more than you. I’m simply doing it for the money. Try and understand.”
Soupolos pays his neighbor $2,500 for the job and for three evenings a week for the next six months, amounting to 72 different times, Maus tries to fulfill the contract and impregnate Traute. After all those tries Soupolos gets inpatient and insists that Maus have a medical examination, which he does. The doctor finds that Maus is also sterile, which pretty much shocks everyone except his wife, who is forced to confess that Maus was not the real father of their two children. Now Soupolos is suing his neighbor for breach of contract in an effort to get his money back, but Maus refuses to give a refund because he said he did not guarantee conception, but only that he would give an honest effort.
