A gay couple's 12-year wait to get married is nearly over

Marc and Shane plan to be one of the first same-sex couples to tie the knot in Taiwan.

Marc and Shane met in sports class at college, where the teacher assigned the pair to work together. The first task was recording each other’s heartbeat. ‘It was really romantic’ Shane told Gay Star News. ‘I stared at his eyelashes and cute dimples’.

The pair, who are now 29 and 31, live in Taipei, the capital of Taiwan. Last year, Marc proposed to Shane at the concert of one of his favorite singers. The pair is planning to register their marriage in downtown Taipei on the morning of 24 May and could therefore become one of the first same-sex couples to legally marry in Asia.
