The Taiwan constitutional court ruling yesterday regarding same-sex marriage follows a landmark case in Mar 2013 when the gay rights activist Chi Chia Wei’s application to marry his partner was rejected. With the support of the Taipei city government Department of Civil Affairs, a request was made to the Consititutional court to determine whether the civil law definition of marriage as a union between a man and a woman violates constitutional law. The court was asked to report on this by 24th May. Taiwan’s president Tsai Ing Wen announced that she supported Same sex marriage when she was elected last year.
Yesterday at 4pm the court ruled that the civil law defining marriage as a union between a man and a woman violates constitutional guarantees of equal protection, and recommended Taiwan changes the law within two years.
Legal experts have pointed out that yesterday’s ruling is mainly a political decision and that further investigations by the Supervisory office is required to determine whether the Justice Court’s ruling is within its terms of reference. It appears that the same sex marriage controversy in Taiwan is unlikely to come to an end because of yesterday’s ruling.

The call of “Marriage equality” is to fight for the rights of the two people getting married. However, changing the marriage law adversely affects the rights of others in the wide society. We need to hear the stories from children who grew up under same sex parents. They are telling us to protect their rights.
Millie Fontana is child of a lesbian couple via artificial insemination. Like many children who grew up in same sex families, they love their same sex parents, but they oppose legalising same sex marriage.
When same sex couples gain their rights to have children, it takes away the rights of the child to grow up with their birth parents. We must ask is it indeed “love” or is it “selfishness” that drives the call to fight for marriage “equality”?
