My boyfriend is divorced and his ex-wife doesn’t like me one little bit.
The ex’s brother died recently and my boyfriend wanted me to go to the funeral with him to be supportive. I said “no” because I felt things were bad enough for the ex and I didn’t want to make it worse.
Queenie, should I have gone for my boyfriend’s sake?—Funeral Etty Ket
Dear Etty Ket,
No, you did the right thing. Funerals are held for the sake of the bereaved. It would have been altogether wrong to do anything that would have made things worse for the ex and her family. If your boyfriend needed your support he could have gotten it at home.
