Romanian bridegrooms take DV course

News from UK about Romania:
Romanian bridegrooms will have to take a three-day course to deter them from beating their wives under new laws set to come into force next year. ...

Yet the government's plan has its critics. "Think about people living in the countryside," said Andrei Popescu, a sociologist. "The counselling centres are all in cities and people will not want to take three days off work to stay in a hotel just to do a pointless course. It won't work."
There ought to be more criticism than that. It is a crazy idea.
