I don’t think anyone would be offended or anything like that, I just don’t think it’s really necessary. It’s not like you need him for emotional support or anything (as this isn’t your relative) and personally, I would feel kind of awkward going to the funeral of someone I had only met a couple of times. But, I don’t think it’s inappropriate or anything.

@LadyBlackheart:  This exact thing happened to me when SO & I had been dating 3 months but were already pretty serious. Unlike you, it was my favorite/closest cousin & I actually knew the grandparents and all their kids/grandkids really well. 

I think it’s totally fine to bring your SO but also totally fine if he doesn’t show. Some people asked where my boyfriend was but it wasn’t shocking that I went alone.
