Seems like most Catholics think that lessens culpability, but I wouldn't think those things justify mortal sin. If it did, then the early martyrs should have just offered the incense.

I'm not sure I understand your scenario and how one could think it is adultery and the other not. Perhaps you could explain. Is this an adulterous union after civil divorce? What is the basis for the one thinking this is adultery?

One or both is divorced and 'remarried'; perhaps the woman has started practising the faith again and refusing to have sex while the man doesn't care about what the Church says.
