With the boundaries of what marriage means being vigorously stretched, this comes as no surprise:
“Age 30 is a prime period for me. My work and experience are in good shape, but I haven’t found a partner, so what can I do?” Chen said.
“I’m not anti-marriage. I just hope that I can express a different idea within the bounds of a tradition.”
Ah, yes. The old ‘different idea within the bounds of a tradition’ trick.
Sadly, Taiwanese law discriminates against such unions, and Ms Chen’s marriage will not be recognised by the state.
But I say, if one person truly loves herself, then why not?
