Set a boundary and expectations. If he can't make you the priority, get out.

He sounds codependent, see if he'll go to Al-Anon (it's for those affected by loved ones' alcoholism)

You can tell him his parents are adults and he can't keep enabling them, that you should be his priority now. Hopefully he will listen to you but if not, time for an annulment/divorce.

What gives you the right to demand priority over his parents?

The fact that they are married and hopefully trying to build a future together. Also, him enabling his parents is not like he's helping, he's doing the opposite. He will likely lose them to alcohol and the spouse due to neglect.

try marriage counseling. if that doesn't work, then bye bye. good luck
