The average divorce rate among international couples between a Taiwanese citizen and a foreign spouse is 22/1,000.

With such high rates of divorce, why get married in the first place?!

Yeah!  It is time for Taiwan to decriminalize polygamy, incest, and adultery, and severely criminalize abortion.

Monogamous “nuclear” families and monogamous “core” families should be redefined and expanded to include distant relatives and in-laws as one polygamous family in which incest, polygamous sexual relationships, multiple partner sexual relationships, multiple adulterous sexual relationships are allowed and entirely legal.
