G.R.C and M.T.M., JR.
The parties met on-line and began their relationship in 2015. In December of 2015, Ms. C., “the mother”, moved to Bermuda. The parties were married there on June 24th, 2016, and resided together in Bermuda until December of 2018. There was one child, M.T.M., III, “the child”, born to them on October 27th, 2018, in Bermuda.
On December 11th, 2018, the mother left Bermuda with the child to visit her family in Toronto for Christmas. The child was travelling on a Bermudian Passport and with the consent of Mr. M., Jr., “the father”, although he says this was only on the understanding and/or the agreement that she and the child would return January 2019. They did not return. The mother’s decision not to return to Bermuda and her communication of that decision to the father is the subject of further discussions later in these reasons.
