Plainly non sense.
There is much higher chance that in a difficult period your woman will abandon you than your own parents.
It is pathetic to compare the relation with a girlfriend or partner to the relationship with a father and a mother.
And even more ridiculous to suggest, like you do, that you should give priority to a girlfriend instead of your OWN FAMILY.
Just decadent and immoral societies have this kind of lame idea that family worth nothing.
... or that he still didn't sever his umbilical cord, and still hides behind her dress (so to speak).
Oh, i am so not surprised that a british come here trying to desqualify the traditional family and the love and respect for parents.
Specially coming from a country where kids are the bosses of their own parents and then kick the elders out of home directly to asylums.
