unconstitutional(形容詞)違憲的

Having long been considered a beacon of LGBT rights in Asia, Taiwan is now on verge of being first in Asia to have same-sex marriage as the Constitutional Court ruled that disallowing people of the same sex to marry was unconstitutional.
一直以來,臺灣總被視為「亞洲同志的燈塔」,現在臺灣在大法官釋憲,宣布不允許同性結婚的規定違憲之後,只差臨門一腳就即將成為亞洲第一個以法律保障同性婚姻的國家。

amend(動詞)修改;修訂

Last December, lawmakers passed the first draft of a bill to amend the Civil Code to legalize gay marriage. The bill intends to replace “male and female parties” in the Civil Code’s marriage chapter with “two parties.” Now this favorable ruling from the court for marriage equality would set a deadline for the Legislative Yuan to amend the Civil Code.
去年12月,立法委員起草提案,要修訂《民法》以保障同婚權益。提案內容主要是將《民法》第972條的婚約當事人由「男女」改為「雙方」。現在,大法官的判決有利於同性婚姻平權,立法院將在2年期限內研擬修法,保障同婚權益。
