My mom says I should break it off and become just friends with my boyfriend who is a private in the army. But I'm not shallow, and do you think it is easy to get married to a rich guy? I really like my boyfriend, he is kind, sensitive, protective and funny. I'm not even flying a B747 yet and I am just going for my private pilot license in a small aircraft. No idea why she thinks I am entitled to rich, 6 ft+, young men. What can I tell her without pissing her off that I'm not a gold digger she wants me to be?

I'd consider what your mom sees in your boyfriend before you assume she wants you to be a gold digger. I'm not sure how well your mom knows your boyfriend, but I can guess not too well. She probably imagines that you dating a private in the army means he will be away for long periods of time and won't be able to support you/be a stable boyfriend. I'd just tell your mom how much you like your boyfriend and that wealth doesn't matter to you, she'll get the idea.1
