Taiwan Becomes First Asian Country to Legalize Same-sex Marriage

Taiwan Becomes First Asian Country to Legalize Same-sex Marriage

New Delhi: Taiwan has become the first country in Asia to approve same-sex marriage, media reports stated. 

Taiwan’s parliament passed a law on Friday allowing same-sex couples full legal marriage rights, including in areas such as taxes, insurance and child custody.

 The country’s Constitutional Court in May 2017 said that the constitution allows same-sex marriages and gave parliament two years to adjust laws accordingly.

The acceptance of same-sex relationships in Taiwan began in the 1990s when leaders of Democratic Progressive Party, now the ruling party, championed the cause to help Taiwan stand out in Asia as an open society.

Taiwan is a self-governing democracy with a vibrant civil society, although China claims island as its own territory.
