Taiwan To Become First Asian Country To Recognise Gay Marriage

Constitutional Court of Taiwan rules that prohibition of same sex marriage is unconstitutional.

The constitutional court’s ruling means that Taiwan is set to become the first Asian country to recognise same-sex marriage.

The panel of 14 judges have today ruled that the current law banning marriage equality is unconstitutional, and that the legislature has two years to either amend the Civil Code or create a new law.

The court said that the current regulations are in violation of constitutional rights to the freedom of marriage and equality among citizens.
