Once upon a time when DNA did not exist, occurred this story. At that time I worked at the hospital.
A civil servant (official.) came to me and asked:
-Official: could you determine paternity.?
-Me: For now it is impossible with 100% certitude, but we can exclude a father, or assume that he could be a father. This works in our service laboratory, in one department, and the search is quite expensive and is still not completely reliable.
Since all parties agreed, mother and father, there was no problem with sample delivery. Slowly, I learned all the details. Mr G. worked on a highly-positioned state service. He had a family and children, but he also had a mistress. His mistress Sue gave birth to a child and she sued him for alimony. Mr. G learned that Sue had another lover and hoped to prove he was not a father.
After all of the blood samples were given, and Mr. G also gave sperm samples, the laboratory conducted the analyzes that came to My table. I had to hand them over to the officers. As I am curious by nature, so I looked a little more in details there. Mr. G could not have been a father. Mrs Sue has therefore got her child with another man. But there was still a large Catch-22. Mr. G. was completely sterile, due to illness of childhood. The thing began to be complicated. How then did Mr. G have his children? I had to be very careful and watch out for which data to give, and to whom to be disclosed, because I smell a big scandal in the city. I called Ms G. I spoke with caution to him.
-Me: I suppose you would not want to be the father of a child who has Sue?
-Ms G: This must not happen. Sue told she take anti baby pills, so I'm not a father. Or she lied then, or deliberately wanted to give birth to a child with me. In any case, it is not fair.
-Me: All right, I hope I can manage it for your satisfaction.
-Mr. G. I would be very grateful to you, and I would never forget it .... Even if You could convince my wife W. in that I do not have nothing do with this ...
-Me: Your wife also found out about this your affair. Can you send she to me for a conversation. I think I will easily convince her, you're not guilty.
The next day, Mrs. W. came to me. She is a very important person in our town.
- Me: You know why we invited you, What do you have to say to Me, Mrs. W.?
-W .: I do not know either., whether my husband is a cheater or an honest husband. We have a family, two children. If my husband was with that woman, I'll kill him or I'll break up, and I'll make a big scandal in our town.
Me: Settle down. The whole story is very strange to me. You have 2 children with Mr G. Did you know that Ms.G. had never been able to have children?
-W: Hmmmmmm It mean you know .....
-Me: Will you tell me the whole story, if I find out what I need, I hope I can help you.....
