A Man Was Planning His Mother’s Funeral, but When His Wife Kept Insisting His Step-Mother Shouldn’t Be Invited He Snapped and Made Her Cry

A man faced the difficult challenge of planning his mother’s funeral. The situation was already tragic for the man, but he would soon find out that family dramas would add even more difficulties to his life, causing him to snap.

The man’s mother had recently passed away, and he, as the local child, was tasked with organizing the funeral service. Complicating matters, his father had a new wife with whom the man had a long-standing feud.

The man’s wife also had her own history of conflict with his father’s wife. The two women had exchanged extremely hurtful words over the years, and the man felt that both of the women had acted out of line, leaving him in a tough spot.

Despite harboring zero fondness for his father’s wife, he recognized that she had to be invited to the man’s mother’s funeral. “I really dislike this woman, but I have to invite her”, the man lamented. “She’s my father’s wife and she was close friends with my mom, so it’s only fair.”

As the funeral planning unfolded, the man’s wife insisted that his father’s wife should not be invited to the service. She expressed her discomfort with the idea of her presence, which led to heated debates.

The dispute had been ongoing for two days, with the wife raising the issue repeatedly. The man attempted to explain his reasons for inviting his father’s wife, but it seemed his wife was unwilling to listen.

A Suggested Compromise

Inundated with requests to uninvite his stepmother, the man tried a new approach. “I tried to compromise by saying if my wife is so uncomfortable she doesn’t need to attend, and I won’t hold it against her”, he explained. “However, she refuses to do this as she wants to be there to support me.”

A Moment of Anger

Finally, in the midst of the funeral preparations and further comments from his wife, the man reached his breaking point. “JUST SHUT UP ALREADY!”, he shouted. “You don’t get a say in this! You don’t get to dictate my mother’s funeral, for Christ’s sake! Just leave me alone already”, he yelled.

The man was now left with an upset wife due to his harsh words. “She has gone off crying now”, the man explained. “I can’t deal with this nonsense, I have my mother’s funeral to plan.”

The man initially felt that his shouting was justified considering his repeated attempts to ask his wife to stay out of the situation. However, he hated to see his wife crying and began to feel like he could have handled the situation better.

Seeking Blunt Honesty

The man headed online to his favorite social media platform, explaining the situation, and asking for “blunt honesty”. The man indeed received blunt honesty, but not in the way he suspected he would. “Your wife is making your mom’s funeral about her which is messed up”, someone accused. “You should apologize for yelling but she should be supporting you right now, not making your life more difficult.”

Apologies Were Due

Everyone took the man’s side, but not without explaining that he was due to apologize to his wife. “Sorry for your loss”, another commenter started. “You were right in telling your wife that she doesn’t get a say in the funeral – it’s not about her and she needs to understand that. However, I would recommend apologizing for shouting at her, that wasn’t cool.”

He Needs Support

Many commenters pointed out the irony of the woman expressing her desire to support the man. “Your wife was completely in the wrong and it is very understandable you lost it”, one person wrote. “She wants to support you? Well, she should actually support you in your plans for your mother’s funeral. At the moment she is literally doing the opposite of being supportive.”

Anyone Can Grieve

One commenter pointed something out that made the man’s wife’s persistent requests redundant. “Funerals don’t usually have guest lists anyway”, they explained. “People who want to pay respects generally just show up.”
