If a person has a US Amex Platinum card, it gets the person SPG Gold status. That is essentially Marriott Gold status if you just link the accounts.

But that is for people who qualify for the card in the US. For those who don't have much in the way of a US credit report, it's not going to fly so easily unless becoming an authorized user on someone else's US Amex Platinum account.
