Your girlfriend will eventually reach the breaking point were she'll have to tell them. When she does, just make sure she has you to fall on when things get bad.
Yes, you're right, it is sad that this kind of thing is an issue even today. Your friend's story is pretty awful. My main concern is my girlfriend. Like I wrote to another poster, I really wouldn't put it past my girlfriend's father to disown her. And I know that when my girlfriend tells her parents, she's going to bore the brunt. And that worries me. I'll do everything in my power to be there for her whatever the outcome.
