US Catholic Faith in Real Life

As a non-Catholic Christian married to a Catholic, I have always been bothered by not being able to receive communion when I attend Mass with my wife at her home church.  I attend a Disciples of Christ  Church in which communion is available to all who desire  and is offered at every service.  I have inquired on several occasions and have been turned down by the Bishop for various reasons, none of which I thought very valid.  I have attended RCIA classes and feel I meet all the canon requirements.  We have made a committment to attend church together because of age and health reasons.  We do occasionally attend Mass at a local military base and receive communion there.   With a good percentage of marriages in this situation, is there any remedy to the communion problem?  Thanks.
