A gay Taiwanese-Macanese couple were given the right to marry after winning their landmark case this past May. According to a report from Agence France Presse, Ting Tse-yen and Guzifer Leong were able to legally get married in Taiwan after suffering pushback from the government. Although same-sex marriage is legal in the country, a loophole was discovered that prevented a Taiwanese person from marrying a partner that’s from a country where gay marriage is illegal. Ting is from Taiwan whereas Leong is from Macau, which currently doesn’t recognize same-sex partnerships. Other couples with similar situations will also have to pursue legal action against the legislation in a court of law.
