My dad and step-mom were cremated and I have their ashes. My step-mom's family wants them buried where her parents will be (also where my grandparents are), together. I hate the idea of my dad being buried with her, because the idea is to put them with my grandparents and I really don't think my grandparents would approve. Her family didn't like my dad, I didn't really like her (or her family). I would rather split them up and be done with it, since nobody in my family would be around to visit the grave site anyway.
That said, they were still married, and it seems wrong to not bury them together. I honestly can't say what my father would've preferred, because he loved his wife be he also still loved my mother. There's no room near my mother's grave, but if there were, I don't think he would've objected.
Meanwhile he's here in an urn. If it was you where would you put him?

He was married to her. I would keep them together.

Why don't you just put some of the ashes in each place. My father was cremated and most of his ashes are in a niche in the cemetery and my mother's ashes will be placed next to him, but I have some of his ashes in a personal memento urn and I have some more that I will take home to England and scatter.
