I've been going through the process and will take m first communion in April. After that I'll fully be into the Church.
Here is where my problem lies. I have a girlfriend who lives with me and we have sex. We don't use contraceptives because it's not needed due to her not being able have kids. We love each other and I don't think it's bad that we share our love on a physical level.
But I'm not sure what to do here. I know the Church frowns on us living together and being intimate. We do talk about marriage but it probably wouldn't happen for 6 more months or so.
So do I confess before 1st communion to be clear and then just not partake in communion afterwards? I think the priest would find this odd after going throuh the conversion and then still not taking communion.
Kind of a rock and hard place here.
