OK to Receive Communion While “Married” to a Divorced Person?

I am a baptized Catholic. I fell away from the practice of my faith when I was younger. At that time I met and married a divorced Methodist man who had previously been married in the Methodist Church. When I came back to the practice of the Catholic Faith a few years ago, I spoke with two priests who both said that I was forgiven and that I could receive Communion again.
