My daughter's great-grandmother died (father's side). The wake was yesterday, the funeral is today. My ex and my daughter have basically no relationship left thanks to him. She wont see him, wont talk to him if she doesnt have to and he only lives a few blocks away. He's been swearing up down that he's changed and blah blah blah. Yesterday at the wake she overhears him saying that he was so wasted friday night from drinking that he doesnt remember anything. The alcohol is one of the reasons why she wont talk to him. Today he picks her up for the funeral and he has his new girlfriend with him that of course my daughter has never met. He has a habit of just throwing new girlfriends in her face and then when he breaks up with them expects her not to be upset after she's gotten attached. I can understand the girlfriend wanting to be supportive but no one in the family has even met her. I'm sorry but I just feel it's wrong to do this. There's a time and place to introduce a new girlfriend but a funeral is not it, especially to a child that you're already having relationship problems with.
