Yes it's possibel to stay in monastaries or 'kyaungs' in Burma, especially in trekking areas like Kalaw or above Pindaya. Some major religious centers such as Bago or Sagaing also allow for meditation pilgrimages.

As far as I know, however, couples do not stay in temples together. In fact, residence for women is much more limited. Are you talking about becoming a monk (or the female equivelent) for a limited period of time, or just kind of visiting while in residence?
