The role of the romantic partner ('cause it applies to both girlfriends and boyfriends) is to be there for you. Their job is to back you emotionally and be there for you. Their job is to be supportive and push you to be your best, but yet not demand ridiculous expectations (that's the job of parents :p). They are supposed to listen to you when you're upset and help you through the tough times. They're supposed to hold you when you cry and not judge you for it. They're supposed to accept who you are as a whole human being and love you for it.
Crying occurs in a state of near if not total emotional vulnerability and to not recognize and appreciate that is not good for a romantic partner. If your significant other shows such raw emotion you are supposed to validate that and show them that it is okay and that you are capable of handling it when they do so. If you cannot be fully open with your romantic partner then you don't mesh well on the emotional end of a relationship.
It's really up to you as to whether or not you want emotional support when you are at a low point, but if I could not be emotionally vulnerable with my boyfriend or if he couldn't with me I doubt we'd function very well as a couple.2
