I am a searcher who feels like he is being drawn to Rome. My wife and I are practicing Anglicans (not Episcopalians). I have had a passing interest in Catholicism for years, largely due to the respect I have for creedal and orthodox teaching.
When my wife and I got engaged, we promised each other implicitly that we would attend church together and make God the central figure of our marriage.
Needless to say, as I feel drawn to Rome this is causing and will cause friction. My question is this: would if be acceptable for me to attend Mass, and following mass go to Anglican service with my wife? Understanding that there are some differences in belief with receiving the Eucharist that may preclude me from participating. (though the Anglican church has a doctrine of "real presence" that seems to leave room for an understanding of transubstantiation.
The fellowship I have with my wife is the most important thing to me in this world. And shallow though it may seem, I cannot comprehend not sitting beside her in church, to the point where I may have to become a closet Catholic.
