A couple in India have sued their son and his wife for not giving them grandchildren despite being married for six years.
The couple, Sadhana and Sanjeev Prasad went to court seeking KSh 74.8 million in damages from their 35-year-old son and his wife, 31.
Through their lawyer Arvind Srivastava, the couple argued that they spent over KSh 30 million to raise their son who is their only child.
“They raised him, educated him, made him capable, made him a pilot which was expensive. They see people in their neighborhood playing with their grandchildren and feel like they should also have one,” Srivastava.
“They said they didn’t marry their son and daughter-in-law off so that they can live alone. So they said that in the next year, either give us a grandchild or give us compensation.”
The compensation will include KSh 7.5 million that the couple spent on their son’s pilot training in the US in 2006 and a luxury car gifted to him for his wedding.
“I have only one son. I spent all my savings on his upbringing and education. He returned to India in 2007 due to the economic recession abroad
“He had lost his job and could not find another for over two years. I supported him financially during this period as well,” Sanjeev said.
