Honestly, if your significant other is annoyed that you'll be spending maybe just an extra hour or two in your free time in the game, then they need a reality check. Partners have hobbies. f*cking deal with it.
Sounds like someone was broken up with over GTA lol.
Graduated high school, got married, had a kid, served a 4 year enlistment in the military (including 2 deployments), multiple family deaths, purchased 3 vehicles, and played GTA IV till it broke to name a few. Damn, a lot has happened. On a side note, man I just got way too personal for the internet.
