A Moroccan man was left devastated after a routine health checkup determined he had been sterile most of his life, meaning he could not have fathered any of the nine children he shared with his wife.
Now, the man, a professor in the small Moroccan city of Sidi Slimane, has filed for a divorce, accusing his spouse of being unfaithful.
During the check up doctors discovered a cyst on his right testicle. However, he told doctors he had the cyst for as long as he can remember. The doctor decided to run some tests and determined the cyst was not life threatening.
However, this led to the shocking revelation that he was in fact infertile, the cyst reportedly left the unnamed man sterile.
Which was news to him since he had nine children with his wife, to whom he had happily been married to for the past 35-years.
After he heard the heartbreaking news, the man decided he would not rush to file for divorce. Instead he underwent a series of test which ultimately concluded he had been sterile for over 50-years- all because of the cyst.
This led to the professor contacting his attorney to file for a divorce and for the disownment of all nine children.
The man had petitioned the President of the First Instance Court to appoint a team of medical specialists to go through all the evidence and confirm that he could not father the nine children.
The team of specialist examined all the tests and concluded the initial findings were accurate and backed up by scientific data.
