Same-sex legislation stalls on review of third bill

By Su Fun-her and Jake Chung  /  Staff reporters, with staff writer

One of the differences between the Executive Yuan’s version and Lai’s version is how to address relations — the former uses “same-sex marriage,” while the latter adopts the term “same-sex family members.”

The Cabinet’s proposal would allow same-sex couples to adopt children from a previous marriage, while Lai’s version does not mention the right to adoption, but instead states that “a same-sex family member should sign documents with the other same-sex family member to exercise the right to joint custody.”
