Her husband ended up going to the funeral alone and was very angry. She described his reaction, “He was livid, just calling me and texting nasty things calling me petty and spoiled”. She argued that her mother-in-law could have booked them both in economy seats.

Her husband told her that she was pathetic and that she should be grateful for the ticket. She explained, “He said it was cruel what I did and that his mom and family will never forget that I missed the funeral over ridiculous reasons.”

She later added, “One of the reasons I didn’t settle for the economy ticket was because I wanted to sit next to my husband and support him. He sobbed the whole ride to the airport and I didn’t want to leave his side. I was shocked when he told me we couldn’t sit together, and how he said it like he had no issue with it.”

I get where you’re coming from, mom probably thought she could do something to divide you from her son in his time of grief.”

It’s also possible there was only 1 first class ticket left so one of them had to sit in economy.”

Your mother in law was petty and juvenile, but your husband’s father just died. This was about him, not you.”
