you must be a stranger to one of your parents

“An unhappy alternative is before you, Elizabeth. From this day you must be a stranger to one of your parents. Your mother will never see you again if you do not marry Mr. Collins, and I will never see you again if you do.”

Mr. Bennet in “Pride and Prejudice” when he is forced to tell Elisabeth the truth about marrying mr. Collins by his wife, mrs. Bennet.
