AITA for going to my dad’s funeral against his widow’s wishes?
“So I’m the product of an affair.
My dad’s wife forgave him for getting my mom pregnant on the condition that she and their kids never have to see me or hear about me, and he couldn’t see my mom. Even so, my dad was involved in my life right up until he d**d, and we were very close. After he d**d I contacted some of his family members (not his wife or kids, I didn’t want to upset them) to ask if it would be ok for me to go to the funeral, and I just didn’t get any replies.
I ended up deciding that since I’ve never met his wife or kids or most of his family they wouldn’t even recognize me so I could just quietly be at the back and not bother anyone. Turns out his wife did recognize me (I don’t know how) and she interrupted the service to drag me out of the building and yell at me for being there, and then when I tried to leave she followed me to my mom’s car to yell at her.
Now I’m embarrassed and guilty that I upset her and caused drama at the funeral and dragged my mom into it. My mom says I didn’t do anything wrong cos I couldn’t of known my dad’s wife would know what I look like, but I’m not sure if she’s just trying to make me feel better. I just wanted to say bye to my dad, I wasn’t trying to cause any trouble.
