Should I go?

by Gaby

My boyfriend and I have been dating for about 6 months, we planned to finally meet each other's families on July 4th, but his sister just recently passed and I am not to sure if I should attend her funeral. I want to go to show my support/ condolences for him and his family but I'm scared his family would have hard feelings towards me if we meet under these circumstances, and if I don't, it would seem as if I don't care. What should I do?

Dear Gaby,

You and your boyfriend need to decide this together. Either way, you are within the boundaries of good manners. Ask him what he thinks his family would want under these circumstances.

Good luck,

Ms Practical Etiquette
