Should the EX wife or EX husband sit with the family during a funeralSubmitted by SMof2 on Tue, 02/12/2013 - 8:38am
Ok, I am having a hard time with this it has hapened twice already. My husbands Aunt and Grandmother died. His Grandmother most recently. Well, at the funeral his Ex-wife insisted on sitting with the family. She made a huge scene about it actually. They do have children together (My hubby and his ex) but the kids didn't even come to either funeral. So why are you doing this??? Now I have no probem with her coming and paying her respects to the family (although she never even met his grandmother in the 10 years they were married), but does she really need to sit with the family???? Why make a scene and why would you want to sit across from us?? To actually ride in the limo ( this made me laugh).
I guess this is even more puzzling since my Husband has been banned from anything for her family. Baptisms, Weddings, funerals, she has painted a picture that even at things for the children they won't even say hello. Yet, you have the right to be there all up in the front trying to hold up his mother crying and being all extra??? I am confused. My husband feels like I feel come pay your respects give your condolences and sit down where there is space and leave when its over......so why is everyone making me out to be the bad guy? What do you all think? Should the ex sit with the family? I'm just puzzled as to why this is acceptable. LOL
