If I marry a Taiwanese girl will I be forced to serve in the army? I hope not because my Chinese is pretty bad when it comes to things other than basic conversation and ordering food.

and you lost your virtue long ago,
You know I'd like to hurt you
but my conscience always tells me no

Marriage to a Taiwanese makes no difference to your status as regards conscription. Are you a holder of a Taiwan ID and an ROC passport? If so, you might have to serve. If not, forget about it, as you'll be a second-class non-person like the rest of us, married or not.
