This is not completely true. You two could live together as brother and sister and he could still receive the Eucharist (of course all of this should be gone over with a priest) provided he was eligible to receive the Eucharist before. (This means that he had his Sacraments of Initiation such as First Eucharist) Living as brother and sister is difficult however your child - his child - the product of a natural marriage that it sounds like you entered into on the best of intentions without all of the facts about the faith deserves to have a mother and a father if at all possible.
Were there other issues going on when he left besides the marriage? I personally think your next course of action is to speak to his priest. That may be all the message from God he needs.
We ended our apartment lease with the intention of moving West to settle.
Instead he had planned on going West and forcing me to move back with my parents.
He said he'd been angry for months, that we fought too much.
It started when we miscarried the first baby. He never talked about it or seemed sad. He claimed he was stressed about about work.
I don't understand why he never told me he was mad.
If he had, we could have found someone to talk to.
But because he worked at a Catholic school he figured they'd fire him if they found out we got married outside the church, so we weren't able to talk to a priest.
I've suggested living together like that until we figure out if things would or won't work but he says that's a sin also. If we don't, then I have to stay 1,400 miles away and he'll miss the birth of his child.
