I was watching Greta last night and she had a small snippit on a doctor in NY who is seeking divorce from his wife. He had given her a kidney at some point, only to find out she is having an affair with her physical therapist. The Dr. is now requesting that she either pay him $1.5 million dollars for the kidney, or he wants the organ back. What is your opinion on this?

Okay, my answer is one of ethics. If he donated the organ, then it was just that, a donation. He has no right to recover money from something that was a contribution. I just have a hard time wrapping my head around the fact that a Dr. is asking for his kidney back. And if he really hates her that much, why would he want something back that has been inside her (unless it would cause her death, which is also an ethical issue).

I get that he wants to get back at her, but he doesn't really have the right to benefit monetarily after the fact. Is it even legal to sell your organs (like prior to surgery)? There was no mention of a prenup, so I have no idea what the settlement would be if he fails to get this one through.
I agree that she is a real piece of work for doing that to her husband, regardless of him giving her the gift of life. I would think if my DH did the same to me I would find a more creative way to get back at him.

I can understand why this guy is mad and his attorney needs to fight so he is not paying that bitch alimony. He should put his energy into getting custody of the kids and make sure her divorce settlement is very small. She screwed around she can find someone else to pay her bills maybe the ass she was screwing around with. Her health is probably not that good so he might be able to get the kids probably a better father anyone that screws around is not a good parent. Blowing up their kids lives like that is terrible parenting. Selfish bitch. I can see him making sure she gets none of his money but suing her for the organ is ridiculous. Hopefully, he will put his energy into something he can do.
