I hope someone can give some input.
I entered the Church two years ago, and have been married for 9 years. My husband is an atheist, and refuses to participate in my faith in any way. I have recently been informed that I 'can't' receive communion as our marriage has not been convalidated. Does anyone have any input about this? Any responses will be greatly appreciated.
Who "informed" you about your marriage? Is it someone who is actually in a position to know?
The short answer is that if you were in a valid marriage prior to becoming Catholic, it is still a valid marriage and you don't have to do anything. If the marriage wasn't valid prior to becoming Catholic, then it is still not valid and you need to take steps to set things right.
What might lead to an invalid marriage? The most common thing would be that one or both of you were married before and thus not free to marry each other. Another common thing would be if one or both of you were baptized Catholic and did not get married according to Catholic form.
If neither of you was baptized Catholic and neither of you were married before, you are most likely fine. Talk with your pastor so that you will be reassured.
If you think your marriage might be invalid, then talk with your pastor about how to rectify things.
In other words, talk with your pastor. :-)
