A man's refusal to pay for his ex-wife's funeral expenses has sparked a family feud. Despite purchasing life insurance policies for both of them, his ex-wife removed him as the beneficiary and named her parents instead. Now her parents are claiming he should pay for the funeral. But he argues that he shouldn't be the one to pay, especially since they will significantly benefit financially from her death. He has offered to pay a small portion of the funeral to ensure it can proceed, but will not cover the religious service or other expenses. The situation has caused him to decline to attend the funeral altogether. As the family feud continues, Reddit users weigh in, asking if he's the a**hole for refusing to pay.

Man refuses to pay for ex's funeral, sparks family feud 😨
A man's decision not to pay for his ex-wife's funeral has sparked a feud with her parents. The couple had been legally separated for two years before the woman died from liver failure. The man had reportedly begged his ex-wife to seek help for her alcoholism, but she had refused. The couple had purchased life insurance policies during their marriage, but the woman had removed her ex-husband as the beneficiary and named her parents instead. Her parents, who are now planning the funeral, had assumed that the man would pay for everything and had told vendors as much. When the man received an emailed invoice for several thousand dollars, he called his ex-wife's mother to discuss the matter. Despite offering to pay for a small portion of the funeral, the man will not be paying for the religious service, flowers, or the luncheon afterwards. He has also decided not to attend the funeral, feeling that he is being taken advantage of. But is he in the wrong? Read on for reactions and comments.
