Do We Need Sacramental Preparation for Parenthood?

In reading the article, all i could think of was my experiences in both the sspx and NO worlds... and then i connected it to China.

It seems both the sspx and NO put restrictions on receiving the sacraments:
- marriage classes for matrimony
- first communion classes for Holy Eucharist (even though i home school catechism daily)
- confirmation classes for confirmation (again, even though i school for confirmation daily)

I guess attacking baptism is the next logical step. "Take these classes or we won't give your child baptism."

Then my mind connected it to China's requirement for a license to birth a child...
