Partly right partly wrong of government.Marriage leads to religious conversion (of gentle Buddhist to islam) or conflict of loyalty politically, weakening Burmese state sovereignty.
Burmese government must understand that marriage is an economic need for many Burmese women in foreign countries. In England, some Burmese in low class East London had married Bangladeshi men with British nationality ( note nationalities) and converted to Islam. Very tragic.
These women need resident status.
Marriage for a woman is subtle prostitoon at worst and emotional dependency at best.
Nan Thiri and Kyaw Thein must understand underlying causes and should not take a simplistic view. And it is not the junta, but an elected civilian government compoded mostly of former army officers, like Dwight Eisenhower.:-)
NZ guy can take his Burmese woman to NZ and marry her there under NZ jurisdiction. Burmese government cannot stop it. Then like SuuKyi she can come back to Burma, jump on democracy bandwagon, talk rule of law to get power and rule Burma with the backing of NZ, England' satellite state, eat kiwi fruit.
Burmese woman will be proud of her trophy husband. Both will be rejected by honourable Burmese society.
The couple can prosper in America, the land of the vanquished natives: Spanish, English coloniserd and other European invaders hapd committed genocide against the naive Americans of both Americas.
Watch out native New Zealanders, your time had come for anihilation. God save the invaders.
Any Burmese marrying a foreignet is a potential traitor.
Watch the word 'potential'. They will switch their allegiance to their husband's country.
Just look at SuuKyi Aris. Neo-stooge of neo-colonialism.

READ 'note NOT nationalities' for 'note nationalities'.
Burmese have sementic problems with the English language.
