Clash in values

Although we have a wedding ahead, there is a problem that caused us to fight.

family

1) brothers, sisters, siblings making monetary requests due to emergency circumstances

(one-time assistance, assuming it is an unfortunate scenario like scams or hospital bills)

Difference in values

doable, only under the condition that things don’t get harder for my family, I can help versus after marriage, one should devote self to only their family, so no helping.

Although I really love my girlfriend, I believe that in a family, one should be able to rely and help each other through out life .

I want to to help even after marriage, as long as it is within our reach. However my girlfriend says that  such idea is a value that shows that one is not ready to marry and that later, if one marries, divorce is inevitable.

Am I in the wrong ?

To be honest,  right after we argued, someone made a request. So I am worried.

Please refrain from using your imagination to add more context to the story, just take the written context as is.

    Why are writing the same post ? Was it because you did not get the answer you wanted ?

    Usually, when one talks like this, doesn’t that mean you have some one in your family that is finding it difficult financially ? If I were your girlfriend, I would have broken up with you.  We are already having it hard to finance our own lives,  can you imagine becoming  someone else’s relative’s support ? If you have a relative to support, please stay single. I am begging you.
