Manners and Etiquette

Should you attend your exhusband's funeral?

If it has been years since you have last seen him then no. If it's been recent and you split up on a friendly basis then it would be just fine to go to the funeral out of respect. If this makes you feel uncomfortable then send a nice Sympathy Card or flowers to your exe's home.

My ex husband's brother passed away from a congentital heart problem (died within seconds while getting out bed) at the age of 40. I decided not to attend the funeral out of respect for my ex's new wife and his two daughters, but I did send a Sympathy Card to the family.

It is not respectful to attend your exhusband's funeral. You are divorced. You are not married.
