There are no Asian countries where same-sex marriage is legal:

Recently, a same-sex Buddhist couple married in Taiwan, where a legalization bill has been pending since 2003. Taipei is also home to Asia’s largest annual gay pride parade, say fans.

The Supreme Court of Nepal ruled in favor of legalization in 2008, but those rights are pending due to issues affecting the new Constitution.

The Justice Ministry in Vietnam said it would consider a provision for same-sex marriage rights in an amendment to the country’s marriage laws.
