My siblings and I lost our mother 7 months ago. My brother's ex gf Amy showed up to the funeral. He dated her before he met his wife and she was friendly with our family but they broke up when she went out of state for college. When she found out that my brother had gotten married she was very upset. She kept calling my brother and my sis in law was obviously angry because the ex was doing everything she could to get close to him. Well anyway, at the funeral she kept hanging onto my brother, trying to hold him and stuff. He was completely destroyed by mom's passing so he was just sitting there staring off. Julia (my sister in law) made it clear to her that she was getting out of line and needed to stop. The ex kept on with it and I could tell that mi SIL was getting more upset so I asked the ex to leave. My sister disagreed with me BC she is friends with the ex gf and she got really mad at me for telling her to leave.
I honestly just wasn't up for drama at my mother's funeral. Besides, my sil and brother and all of us were already upset, without having to deal with this woman on top of it all. And if she hadn't been so disrespectful in the first place she would have been fine. I was ok with her from the beginning, but when she started trying to get back with my brother without caring about destroying his marriage and my nieces' home, I couldn't be cool with her anymore. I was extremely angry that she tried to use my mother's funeral to her advantage.
Well since then, my sister is STILL mad at me, and hasn't spoken to me since. I tried to reach out to her yesterday and she's still angry saying I had no right to kick Amy out. I was just trying to keep the peace and to be respectful of mi sister in law. She is after all a part of our family, my mother loved her dearly, and the other girl is just an ex girlfriend. Was it that bad for her not to talk to me anymore?
