We travel more these days, and so we meet our partners abroad.
When these marriages break up (as four in ten marriages do), a foreign wife often longs to take the kids and head back home.
It’s curious then that our courts seem to think the opposite — that a chat via Skype or on an i Pad is all a father needs to bond with and care for his child.

Gotham, who had been on trial for the past eight weeks, denied six offenses, while Forbes had earlier pleaded guilty to four.
Forbes also was convicted on a separate offense of making indecent images of children and breaching a sexual harm prevention order.

They then connected on Skype, where they livestreamed their abuse of the young girl, authorities said.
Ellis opened up about Gotham and Forbes after San Francisco cops and the FBI busted her in April 2015, authorities said.
She told officers she had witnessed the couple abusing the girl via Skype, under the name “Sarah Girls Only.” During her trial, Ellis pleaded guilty to the production of indecent images of children.
Investigators found more than 64 pages of graphic chat logs between Ellis, Gotham and Forbes, police said.
Prosecutors said Gotham played an active part in the abuse and “was more than a spectator or a passenger,” according to the report.
