Your gal is caught between a rock and a hard place.
I have a suggestion. Do you practice any kind of reflection or meditation, that is, where you can get really really quiet? The kind of quiet where you hardly feel your body? That is the place to go to right now, at least once a day. While you are 'there', you can ask what you should do. Then just be quiet and take what you get. It may come to you as a picture, a sound, or a feeling. The thing is not to strain to make anything happen. But if you practice this daily, you will 'know' what to do. Whatever you do 'get', follow the 'advice'.
The Kingdom is within!
Daniel may be on to something here, C. While in that quiet, unmoving meditation, you can as for guidance and help. Don't just leave things as they are, or your lover's parents will win. That can't happen, if you and she really want to be happy.
