They don’t have to worry if you’re dating some secret serial killer. They want to have their space and be able to do things without someone else questioning them. Things aren’t perfect in any relationship; I still find myself extremely upset with some of my favorite book characters.
Their child is happy in the safety of their own home. When you’re dating a fictional character, you deal with them when you want to (and close the book when you don’t).

In a normal relationship, this would lead to some huge argument, and we would be mad at each other for days.
