I know this is an old post.  I have a simular question.  My dad divorced my mom after 50 years of marriage to be with a younger woman.  The younger woman knew my mom.  what complicates the matter is that my mom had alzheimers, and had no understanding what was going on.  They both want to attend my mom's memorial service, and I feel there presence will be a display of disrespect ot my mom's memory because they betrayed my mom.  I seem to be the only one who feel this way, and it's really tearing me up.  How can I be okay with someone being at my moms memorial service, knowing they betrayed her?

It seems that your point is not about ex spouse, but about how that spouse became ex.

I find it difficult to make comments without having all the facts.  This is a very complexed matter.  So based on the information I provided in my original post, what are your thoughts about my father and his new wife being at my moms (his ex wife) funeral?

Your parents were married for 50 years, while you may still be dealing with their separation and circumstances surrounding it, I think they should be allowed to come and say goodbye.
