TAIPEI (Taiwan News) — A U.S. citizen has left his job and flown to Taiwan to try and gain custody of his daughter after his Taiwanese wife allegedly "abducted" her twice and has refused to allow him to see the child in over a year and a half.

Ariel Azoulay, 38, was born in Ashkelon Israel, but his family moved to Buenos Aires, Argentina when he was one and a half years old. At the age of 16, his family immigrated to the U.S., where he has lived since, becoming a naturalized citizen in 2010 at the age of 27.

Cross-cultural couple

Having recently moved to the San Francisco Bay Area for work as a senior software engineer, Azoulay met his future spouse surnamed Hsu on a dating app. Hsu, now 32, had been living in the U.S. for over five years prior to meeting Azoulay, and she studied at the Academy of Art Institute in San Francisco, CA.

Their relationship developed rather quickly, and in October 2014, the couple began living together in the city of San Mateo, California. On September 12, 2015, Azoulay proposed marriage to Hsu.    [FULL  STORY]
