One of the main aim of marriage is the formation of a family through which one can find security and peace of mind.
According to the Quran one of the tasks of a wife is to be a source of comfort for her husband.
Therefore my dear sister,i know nobody can take the place of ones parents and as a daughter, its your duty to take care of them especially when they need you.
But you should keep in mind that as a married woman your first priority should be the pleasure of your husband and when your parents see that your husband is happy with you, this’ll make them happy too.
Secondly your parents are not alone,there are people to take care of them,so the best thing for you is to do what your husband wants.
There is no doubt Allah will help you.
