A parent should never be put in the position of choosing between their partner and their children. When you get married, you take a vow to forsake all others; that means you don't let anyone (including your child) come between you and your partner. However, making your partner your highest priority doesn't mean that you always jump and do whatever your partner wants, even if it means neglecting your child.
Remember, children will grow up, leave home, and have their own lives. If you have a successful relationship, your partner will be with you forever.
When FSU (coached by Bobby Bowden) played Clemson (coached by Terry Bowden) in football in 1999, Ann Bowden was interviewed and asked who she was cheering for. She replied, "Don't be foolish. Terry's my son and I love him dearly, but I'm going home with Bobby!" She got it right.

No the love of a parent and child are equal, the child shouldn't get more love than the partner and the partner shouldn't get more love than the child.
The child is the first priority. There's a difference between that and love.
Love is how much you care, respect, and adore a person, and you love the child and the partner, you shouldn't quantify how much love someone is giving for someone.
But whatever happens, the child should be priority, for both the parents, this does not mean they are loving the child more, this is their job and they are helping the child's future.
