She's not his wife. If you read this posters other thread you'll see that this guy is her boyfriend of one year. They don't live together and he is abusive towards her children.

OP why in the world are you with this guy? He's terrible!

Wow, they do not even live together, and yet as stated in the first post on this thread "the kids are dropped off" (not the OP's kids) by him and his ex so that they can "attend together"? She should have just told him to deal with their children on their own as she will not be the doormat babysitter. I agree why in the world is she with this guy.

Because she needs confirmation from others that he's a jerk.

OP, this man is is a jerk. He's bad news. Stop being a victim and walk!

He should know better in that he should have brought you. Look, you met them, and maybe didn't get to know this person in a year and a half too well but it isn't the point. Like George Constanza said on Seinfeld in the one episode where his girlfriend's relative dies "I'm the boyfriend, it is what boyfriends do." In other words it is your job to go to the funeral to be of support of your boyfriend. It doesn't matter if your name wasn't specifically on the invite. You are with him, and should be of comfort to him.


Maybe let it go and privately tell him you wish you could have been there to support him since it is what you want to do. Other than that, keep it on the backburner for future use.
