I have come back to the church after too many years. I am married but not in the Church. Both my husband and his ex-wife were not baptised, but he will be so when he can join the Church also. We now live as brother and sister until we can have a sacramental marriage. My question is this: some say I can go to Confession and Communion. Other sites say I cannot since I am married to a man who is still married to his former wife. Why the disconnect? Did I commit adultery by marrying him outside of the Church and do I commit sin everday since everday I wake up I am in an invalid marriage? Since I do intend to marry him and be with him, am I still commiting adultery since if I even think it I am doing it? I love my husband dearly but my love for God comes first!
Back for good!
