newly dating

I have been seriously dating this man for 3 months, his grandmother just died last night. I have not met any of his family yet, what is appropriate for me to do. Is just sending a card? Food? Go to the wake?

Evaluating the Circumstance

Dear Newly Dating~

Thank you for this most interesting question.

Funerals are for the comfort of the living. If you feel your presence will be comforting to his family, then you may consider attending. However, consider this: Has your fellow asked you to attend? If not, then a card of sympathy to the family is most appropriate.

Good luck,

Ms Practical Etiquette

I did not go but I did make a donation in memory of his grandmother
