I learned that my ex MIL died last week.  I didn't know she was sick so it still feels so strange that she's gone. We weren't close at all and I haven't spoken to the majority of my ex's family in 8 years. I didn't go to the memorial service for that reason. I have made my peace with her, I did even before I knew she was ill. I'd considered getting in touch with her, waivered on it, then decided not to. I went to the web-site where here memorial was and they had a video photo gallery thing - there was even a picture of me in it. I was touched in a way, considering my ex is with someone else. They had photos from both their sons weddings - both sons are divorced. Anyway, it is just really weird. This is harder to wrap my head around than my own aunt by marriage's death a few months ago. Thanks for letting me vent.

I was reading online about attending ex in-laws funeral - after the fact - there are definitely mixed feelings. I had my own memorial watching those photos and my parents are sending a sympathy card from our family. Still weird!!

I am still in touch with my ex husband's parents 19 years after my marriage ended, and also my former SIL. They are in their 80's now and we try and see them at least once a year(they live about 4 hours drive away), which is sort of weird because my ex hasn't bothered with them for years. I am also in contact with them by email and send them birthday and Christmas cards etc. A strange situation but my children are still their grandchildren etc.
