Woman Demands Kidney She Donated To Husband In Divorce After Finding Out He Cheated
A British woman who donated her kidney to her husband is now asking for it back after discovering that he cheated on her with a friend while she was recovering from the surgery.
The Examiner reports that 41-year-old Samantha Lamb of Devon, Britain, married Andy Lamb in 2007 and gave him one of her kidneys in 2010 when he became ill and needed a transplant.
Soon after the operation, however, Samantha began suspecting her husband was cheating on her. He was moody and distant, she says, and was spending much more time than usual on his computer.
It was only a matter of time before she stumbled upon a sexually-charged conversation Andy was having with someone online.
Samantha's mother and sister allege that they also caught Andy with his arms around one of her best friends soon after.
Andy denies that he physically cheated on his wife, claiming that he was only with the woman to help train her dog.
This alibi was rendered false when the other woman admitted to the affair.
And now Samantha has filed for divorce, asking for her kidney back as well.
"I can't believe he now has a second chance to live to see his grandchildren grow up," she told The UK Mirror. "I would definitely go through the operation again -- but I wouldn’t give the kidney to him. I hate him. If I could I'd take it back and give it someone else. Obviously I don't want people to be put off putting their names on the organ donor list. But all I want from him is his name on the divorce papers."
While Samantha probably won't get her kidney back- - the court does not have jurisdiction over a donated body part that has already been implanted -- she says that Andy will at least "always have to remember where the kidney came from.”
