Yes I checked the other “stay or go” questions before I asked. None cover this topic.

IMHO the living take precedence over the dead. But I would also arrange for flowers or some alternative to be sent to teh exMILs funeral.

You can’t do anything for the mother in law, I go with spend time with the aunt.

If you go, will there be trouble?

More importantly: if you stay, will it be double?

Sorry, it had to be done

I wouldn’t give up the time you have left with your aunt.

Go to your aunt.

Ex-MIL comes with ex-spouse who possibly has a new life? If you are close to your ex-inlaws, and your ex-FIL is still alive, fix a casserole, drop it off at the house on the way out of town. Explain that you have a family emergency, but didn’t want to pass on paying your respects.
