According to CNN, It is reportedly scheduled to take effect later next week.
Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-wen celebrated the law’s passage in a tweet shortly after.
“Good morning #Taiwan. Today, we have a chance to make history & show the world that progressive values can take root in an East Asian society,” she said in the tweet.
“Today, we can show the world that #LoveWins,” she continued.
Under the new law, a spouse can adopt another’s biological children, but not non-biological ones. The two parties could serve as medical power of attorney and have the right to inherit the property of the other. Lawmakers stopped short of allowing same-sex marriage if one spouse is from a nation where such unions are illegal.
The bill follows a 2017 ruling that Taiwan’s ban on same-sex marriage was unconstitutional.
