Maybe he has a younger sibling (that the mother doesn't want to go to a funeral) to look after while she's gone or maybe he never even knew her or maybe he simply didn't want to go. There are numerous reasons, some good some bad, that a person wouldn't attend an aunt's funeral, these were just a few I came up with.

Why would you go to a party after a funeral? If anything, I don't think that I would have fun at a party right after a funeral. I would be pretty bummed out and drink a lot.

^^its called a wake(I'm not sure if that's how you spell it, I've never written it down)... Sometimes it's just like lunch or something, but there's been one at every funeral I've ever gone to

Really? There are many legitimate reasons a person is unable to attend a funeral. You can't judge a persons character based off a few sentences about them. That would be ignorant.

#40, it's possible, but I think unlikely. There are almost no places that will not let you attend a family funeral. I don't know of the OP had a bad relationship with her aunt, but she should have gone for her mom's sake.

Ignorance breeds intolerance. Perdix, I'm disappointed in your rush to scold op when you have such little knowledge on the situation at hand. Jumping to conclusions is a bad thing to do in almost any situation.

What of they couldn't afford all to go? When my husband's aunt died we couldn't go because we couldn't afford it at the time. Plus I was very sick so couldn't fly. There are reasons as to why people can't go. Most of them are worthless, but some are legit. Who knows what OP's excuse was.

I'm guessing that the OP didn't know her well since she called her her mom's sister rather than her aunt. That said, I've gotta defend perdix; there are precious few excuses for skipping a relative's funeral... Plus, do it for your mom!

I agree with mr. Foremen, the guy sitting alone, and the dog. You never know what the situation is and should never judge people on only hearing half of the story, sometimes your right but other times you look like a bigger dick than what you claim the other person to be.

I didn't go to my aunts funeral but my mum did. Why? I never knew my aunt. I felt uncomfortable being at a funeral while people are upset, because I would feel like an imposter. Does that make me a bad person perdix?

#80, that's a very unusual situation. Sure, there are scads of very unlikely scenarios that excuse the niece's absence, but it's most likely that she's just a shit.
