A couple in North India are suing their son and his wife for not giving them a grandchild, according to a story from the Times of India.
Sanjeev and Sadhana Prasad, 61 and 57, say they are owed the money since they used all their savings raising their son, paying for his education and funding his wedding and honeymoon.
According to the suit, the couple is suing for 50 million rupees ($650,000) if their son and his wife do not have a child within a year. The suit claims their son’s actions amounted to “mental harassment,” according to the BBC.
The couple sent their son, Shrey Sagar, 35, to the U.S. for pilot training. According to the suit, it costs the couple $65,000. Their son got a job and returned to India but lost the job and the family had to support him financially for more than two years, the Times of India reported.
The parents say they paid for a wedding reception in a five-star hotel, a luxury car worth $80,000 and a honeymoon abroad.
“My son has been married for six years but they are still not planning a baby,” Prasad said. “At least if we have a grandchild to spend time with, our pain will become bearable.”
