I love New Zealand. Such a lovely country, which I’ve had the privilege of visiting only once so far. However, this story, makes me wonder what in the heck is going on down there.
Go ahead, take a moment to read it. I’ll wait here for you.

Are you as outraged as I am? First of all, what right does any governing body have over an individual’s body? Secondly, that poor woman does not need this kind of stress. Moving halfway across the world is hard enough. Being separated from from her husband just ups the ante.
Overall, I’m just really disappointed in New Zealand right now. If they really must enforce this ridiculous edict, why not allow her entry and then give her a reasonable amount of time to shed the weight in a healthy manner?
[Oh, and I do think her wedding dress is quite lovely, don’t you?]
