To receive Communion, you must be in a state of grace, have made a good confession since your last mortal sin, believe in transubstantiation, and observe the Eucharistic fast. I don't see how you can be forced to have communion. From what you have posted, I would think that you are simply not eligible to recieve it (don't get me wrong there - I don't mean that as an insult, just a statement of fact).
If you are not eligible for communion, you can still be married in a Catholic church, but one question you need to resolve is, if God blesses you with children, what religion will they be brought up in. But this is for the two of you to sort out.
Being married in a church is something special. It is more than just a marriage. If the two people do not belong to the same church, it complicates things, but don't let it spoil it for you. Marriage is a covenant with God. It is the means "by which a man and woman establish between themselves a partnership for the whole of life" (Catechism of the Catholic Church, #1601).

Having said all that make sure your man is on your side - don't marry him if he isn't
then decide what you want and provided you are not making things more expensive than they otherwise would be nobody has a right to tell you otherwise, so stick to your guns and, together with your man, insist!
