This story is stranger than fiction. Sure, most guys dream of a job like this, but this is no joke. One thing's certain, the man hired to do the job had tenacity! 72 times. What they found out after the man made 72 attempts SHOCKED everyone involved. Then it went to the courts.
As reported, Demetrius Soupolos, 29, and his wife Traute (a former beauty queen), wanted a child for a long time. However, Demetrius was told by a doctor that he was sterile.
To overcome this problem, Soupolos, decided to hire his neighbour, Frank Maus, 34, to impregnate his wife. Since Maus was already married and the father of two children, the plan seemed promising.
Soupolos paid Maus $2.500 for the job. For three evenings a week, for the next six months, Maus tried desperately. In all, a total of 72 different times to make Traute pregnant.
When the hired man's own wife started to complain he explained to her, “I don’t like this any more than you, I’m simply doing it for the money. Try and understand.”
However, when Traute failed to get pregnant after six months, Soupolos was not understanding and insisted that Maus have a medical examination, which he did.
The doctor who did the examination concluded that Maus was also sterile, shocking everyone except his wife who was forced to confess that Maus was not the real father of their two children.
Now the whole mess is in the courts in Stuttgart, Germany, where the husband has brought suit against the man he hired to get his wife pregnant.
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 it an honest effort... and boy oh boy, did he. 72 times.
