Guys defending their girlfriends

Why is it that some guys are so street dumb(the total opposite of "street smart")? They could come from a good family who cherish them and treat them very well. Once they grow up and have a girlfriend, it's the girlfriend who have complete control over them. If their family end up making some bad statements about their girlfriend, they become so defensive even though they barely got with the girl for about a week. When the girl's family mistreats his family, he turns a blind eye, giving the excuse that it has nothing to do with the girl. As far as special occasions are concerned, it's about what the girl wants. She can pretty much get him to spend the holidays with her and forget about his family with the right excuse. When it comes to doing something special, it's always about the girl, and never about his family. They are also too cool to say things like: "Happy Thanksgiving or Halloween". Then, they wonder why their family doesn't care much about spending time with them.

I might as well not have a person like this in the family....

I guess he wasn't brought up well enough. His family should have raised him to be a man who is able to balance family and relationships amongst other things, and he should able to show his respect and love for people in his life along the way.

I think it's more due to the fact that he didn't have a father figure at all.

I think that whole "yes dear" way of thinking -- which is what I assume you're talking about -- is a flawed by nature. It's true that decision making between couples should be balanced and fair, but I don't think someone should be booted from the family just because they haven't quite got that balance down.

Unrelated, but I have never had anyone say "Happy Halloween" to me.
