His family is mad I won't go to the wake or funeral

My husband just passed away. He was an asshole to put it mildly. He wasn't a good husband and a barely decent father. We were married for 11 years together for almost 15.

We have 4 kids ranging from 14 to almost 3. I wasn't going to have a wake and didn't care if there was a funeral. His family wanted them so I said fine then you can plan and pay for them.

I said I wouldn't be there. I don't need closure, to say goodbye or to listen to anyone's fake sympathies. They said how will it look if you're not there. I said ok I'll go but I will tell everyone there what a rotten person he was.

Yes, I did stay with him through all of his bullshit. I am done though. I am moving out of here before Christmas. I will move across the country and start a new life with my kids.

Why did you stay with him? Was his death unexpected?

 STOP IT &  get your act together for your children. Do NOT bad mouth him at his wake or funeral. You will only make yourself look like shit.

You might think about the consequences on your kids, if they're not allowed to say good bye to their dad.  Maybe focus on the good times and why you married him and chose him as the father of your child.  He can't be all bad if you had kids with him for 11 years.
