"In a likely response to widespread misinformation that legalized same-sex marriage would also allow polygamy, bestiality, and incest, among other already illegal deviances, Ministry of Justice Director of Legal Affairs Chung Jui-lan (鍾瑞蘭) enumerated a list of acts which are still illegal under the draft bill. 'Polygamy, or multiple marriages, are also prohibited,' she said. 'That is, if you’re already in a same-sex marriage, you can’t establish another same-sex marriage with someone else, nor can you establish a heterosexual marriage.'"

"Hu made the news this week when he revealed that he has four 'wives,' 14 children, and 16 'intimate female friends,' reported EBC. The 57-year-old crane mogul claims that the secret to keeping four 'wives' happy is 'fairness.' As bigamy is technically illegal in Taiwan, Hu is likely only legally married to one of his supposed spouses. According to Want Weekly, Hu spent NT$400 million (US$13 million) to build an eight-story mansion for his wife, mistresses, and children... Hu claims he keeps each 'wife' happy by granting each their own floor in the manor and allowing them to decorate their section as they please" (para 3-5).

"With the passing of the Domestic Violence Prevention Act, the government and the people began to promote the notion that 'domestic violence is not only a family matter but a criminal behavior.' Domestic violence has moved from the private sphere to the public sphere where it has always belonged. The new notion not only breaks from traditional societal values but also clashes with the patriarchal attitudes of some law enforcement officials, allowing abused women and children to hold the hope of escaping from violence. Moreover, local women’s groups not only dedicate themselves to direct services and indirect promotional work, they also collaborate to speak for abused women and children, while...more
