Am I obligated to go to my ex- boyfriend's dad's funeral?
I went out with my ex James for 3/4 years, and finished with him 6 years ago because he was negligent, noncommittal, and he kept accusing me of flirting with his dad at social events, when really I was being polite and listening to his ideas, he was 67.
James did try to meet up with me, and sometimes asked me to Xmas, but always last minute, so I declined. He now has a girlfriend who has been living with him for 2 years.
He recently rang me to ask me to come to visit his father in hospital after he fell ill with cancer, and said it was because his father liked me, I was working and said no due to work.
Then he contacted me to invite me to his dad's funeral, why is it so important to him that I go? Is it respectful to his current girlfriend? What do you think the right thing to do is? Thanks..
