The books still have his woman. Parker was married to Lynn before the series began. He then had a steady girlfriend for a while who left him. He's been with Claire for quite awhile--a really long time if you consider the break when Stark wasn't writing. They aren't married, but refers to herself as Mrs Parker. He has a house Claire lives in when he is away, and he returns to. As recently as Backflash the house and its location is praised because it would be so easy for him to disappear from it if he had to. Claire even helped him do research, but its clear the attachment wouldn't deter his leaving forever if he had to Mark.
