I am a Catholic and my wife is, Church Of England. We were married seven years ago in a Civil service. I have recently returned to the Church and would like to receive the sacrements. I have spoken to my wife, who I love dearly about having our marriage convalidated, but she has made it clear to me that she feels it is a step she is not willing to make.
My questions are these,
(1) If I can never receive the sacrements again am I not a proper Catholic?
(2) Is there any point in going to mass if I cannot receive the sacrements?
(3) Can I goto mass and then goto a protestant church later and receive the Eucharist?
I am very confused I made a mistake when I was suffering from depression without thinking about the implacations.
