Usually parents are just trying to help or are old-fashioned. I never heard of the marrying in your profession though. Are your parents in the same profession. I hope so because it sounds hypocritical.
I know you don't want to strain the relationship you have with your parents but sometimes you have challenge authority to get respect or to get them to see the error of their ways.3THIS IS NOT RELEVANT ANYMORE

Money reasons. Your line of study has to do with money. They want you to marry somebody who you can rely on financially in case you don't get to having a certain amount of money or be able to survive on your own. To be honest with you, this is your choice and decision. I don't know exactly where you live so I cannot say. I assumed you're in Africa. So I answered based on that. And if you're in the States or other Westernize country, 9/10x it's for cultural reasons. Also remember, you said your parents did WAY more stuff than you wouldn't have done. So it's based out of fear you would do the same thing. But only you know you, and only God would know what you would do. But the choice is still yours as long as it's the wise decision for both of you and the family.2THIS IS NOT RELEVANT ANYMORE
