Mortal sin requires full knowledge and full consent, along with grave matter. If full consent - whatever that is - is lacking, it's venial.

It makes more sense to me to presume that grave matter = mortal sin, to encourage repentance, confession, and a change of lifestyle, but nowadays the Church likes to emphasise God's mercy over His justice, so we're left with a wishy-washy "maybe" or "we don't know" when we're asked about things like mortal sin and hell.
