  • Nobody can tell you what is the right choice to make for your family. I personally would have gone to the funeral with my husband. It is only a couple of hours and I would have the rest of the time to visit with family, and my hubby may need my support in his grieving.

  • i think it's fine that you stayed behind. i would want to be with my family too... and since you're not even close to the uncle then it shouldn't be a big deal. i would just make sure my hubby knows he has my support and you are thinking of him too.

  • I'd stay and visit with my family.

  • why couldn't you do both? if the funeral is local, why not go with your hubby to it, and then back to your family. i'm sure they would understand you being gone a few hours.
    if its not local, and hours of travel is involved, by all means, continue as planned with your family.

  • Was hubby close to the uncle, or is he going mainly out of respect to the family? If he was close to him, your husband would probably like to have you there with him. If it's the latter, then I probably wouldn't go.
