Islamic marriage advice and family advice

Trapped between family relationships

Things got bad between my wife and parents as my father took things in his hands in my absence… One day my wife got very sick and instead of taking her to the hospital my father left her at her parents place.

Is it right to dis-obey parents in this case?

Now I tell him that he should still bring forth his proposal to his family but he fears he will be breaking family ties and will be disobeying his mother and Islam says we should not disobey our parents in any way. But then again it is not right for parents to emotionally blackmail their children either.
