My mentally handicapped brother has just finalized his divorce. He will most likely never get married again due to his inability to care for himself. (My parents consider his marriage to be a firm proof of this.) He will likely go into a group home at some point. My understanding is that he would not be barred from Communion unless he re-married outside the Church (which is highly unlikely). Is that correct?
He is also now dating a more severely handicapped woman (when my parents take him – he cannot drive). Does this pose any problem for him regarding Communion? Also, is it necessary to go thru the annulment process when remarriage will not occur?
