If you are married to her then you have to take care of her and be with her but if your parents depend upon you and there is no one else then you have to find a way to fulfill that obligation and in this case since she seems to be marrying you to please her parents then you should seek marriage elsewhere and keep your parents happy. Marrying one you are pleased with is not disobedience of parents. Not to fulfill the parent's rights is not to ensure their obligations are met and to disrespect them, that is sinful.

Being an Educator of Islamic Studies and Interfaith discussions for the past 25 years and having authored seventeen books and numerous articles on Islam - I think I can answer questions on Islam and other religions and issues of the Hanafi jurisprudence as well as general questions on Quran and Sharia. Love, sex and marital problems are some such topics! This is an independent volunteering service and not under any organizational banner that I may be affiliated with. My book- Intimacy and the Sacred talks about Sex and Muslims.
