Default Re: Alfred Pennyworth in the reboot

All the same, Alfred is the only family Bruce has, and the former accepted a quasi-paternal guardianship for the latter. I think Alfred feels a sense of duty to keep Bruce sane and human. Trying to maintain ordinary things in his life, like a woman's love, is part of this and, in a sense, it keeps the Batman mission going.
