    Kitty was little more than a footnote and hasn't been around in a while. I'm really confused why you'd even mention her.


Well, I haven't read many appearances of the modern GotG and so to make sure I checked at wikipedia. And neither
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Star-Lord
nor
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gamora
has anything to say about the two being boyfriend and girlfriend in the comics. In contrast the article on Star-Lord has quite a bit to say about Peter Quill and Kitty Pryde's romantic relationship, how they were planning to get married and how they broke off their engagement etc. etc. So on that evidence it seems that in the comics Quill/Pryde was more serious and significant than Quill/Gamora, which apparently is only a thing in the MCU, where Kitty as yet does not exist.

Also, Gamora is the only female Guardian in the first movie, so it conforms to the good old Silver Age rule that in a team with just one female member that woman is the leader's girlfriend, fiancée or wife (vide Reed&Sue, Scott&Jean, Vance&Nikki, Chris&Hepzibah - Janet&Hank Pym is not an aversion as they were already a two-man team before the Avengers were founded).

I now did a double-check here
http://marvel.wikia.com/wiki/Peter_Quill_(Earth-616)
http://marvel.wikia.com/wiki/Gamora_Zen_Whoberi_Ben_Titan_(Earth-7528)

Still nothing about them being a couple. So apparently the only member of the GotG to whom the descriptor "Star-Lord's girlfriend" applied in the comics would appear to be Kitty Pryde (who was also his fiancée).
