Someone affected by the rules writes :

I broke up with my girlfriend last week. It was purely due to the distance and the uncertainty about her being able to come here. I wanted to fight for her, but the mental toll on me was just getting too much and I need a clear mind to be able to get through my studies.

The whole thing is very sad and I just feel a great sense of injustice but also powerlessness.

A young couple who met at university, broken up by the stress of the rules. Shameful, and wicked.
