My friend's parents died recently in a car accident but he refuses to go to their funeral even though they were very close. Is this considered rude or not

Is it rude not to go to your parents' funeral?"I'd be dead,'' she said. ''He going to be my best friend for the rest of my life.''

One guy argued that he did not want his 'last memories' to be his parents being in a box. Back in the 90's when Media was making a big deal about it.
Others won't go because their dad molested them or their mom was whore.
Honestly -- it is none of your business.

Pretty sure all the good moments will outweigh this sad one. If a person can't muster the strength to go, they have that right to want to remember everything but "the last time I saw them like that".
If it were my mother, no question, I'm there. My sperm donor, fukc no, he can eat sh**.
He was never in my life, yet I'm supposed to play the "sad son" and fake like I'm sad? Yeah, right."ERMUHGAWD Crew"

its not disrespectful. its disrespectful if you were a horrible kid to your parents. if he was close to his parents i can totally understannd him not going to their funeral. if my mom died.. i wouldnt go to her funeral because i dont want to see her lifeless body in a casket. and you think going to the funeral really helps the grieving process? **** that... now if my dad died.. id be more then happy to see his lifeless rotting corpse.

No it is not rude. This is a situation where everyone is better off minding their own fukin business. Everyone deals with loss in much different ways. Telling him he is evil or a bad person for not going is a good way to get a hammer smashed face.

Funerals are just another excuse for acquaintances to gather and gossip with one another.
People have funerals to try to make themselves feel better about death. They throw a morbid party and want lots of people to show up so that in their imagination, when they die, lots of people will remember and miss them.
Funerals are a throwback to a time when you rarely got to participate in selfish excesses, but today they're common place, you don't need one after you're dead too.
Whether you go to the funeral or not, they're dead. Not showing up just gives them something else to talk about when they're there.

who the fuk makes these things up? funerals are entirely cultural, its like a fukn birthday or wedding neither of which I give 2 shyts about but they can be fun at least.
my dad died and I wouldn't have gone anyways so we didn't have one because first off my dad would say its a waste of money and second off I was 15 and my sister was 12 and like someone above said we dont need to be constantly reminded about shyt like people saying sorry and what not.
everything happens for a reason and he's probably in a better place because straight up--this world is fuk'd. (no emo) He also suffered so much his last year. So the way I see it, he was liberated.
still grieving but it's selfish to think like that "omg he's not here to see me do all this stuff in my life and talk to me and do things with me etc."

no wut the fuk, my friend didnt want to go to his dads funeral because it was open casket and he didnt wan to see his dads corpse
weird thread, even if it was rude what would you do, call him out? tell his parents? (no srs tag)you're 5'7'', the girl I'm dating is taller than you... thus, I couldn't give a phuck less what you have to say. thanks. everyone laughs inside their head when they walk past you... or some of the more compassionate members of society feel bad for you, sometimes i wonder how much your life sucks

its not rude, i dont blame him. all these people that didn't give a **** about you or your parents telling you they are sorry for your loss at their funeral.
so many false people, also why go? no point, they are dead. going to a funeral is just a get to gether so people can grieve together, some prefer to grieve alone.
best off only thinking about the good times.moving the MMA section to the powerlifting/strongman section didn't only not make _any_ sense, but it also leaves you to more ignorant, neg happy retards.
