It's making me stressed. So the guy that I'm talking to is currently 23, comes from a large family, and has a degree in criminal justice. He met my mom at our house, which I regret. But my mom told me I have date someone from a small family and a good major. Also she said that the man must treat her respect, which the guy I'm talking to did. But I'm scared. I want the guy I date to treat me with respect and happiness. I don't know why my mom is focusing on the money aspect. Like you're not marrying the guy, I am. My parents' marriage is not what I want... not even. I don't know what to do.

So you ply and obey, then ask us why does your mother claim her decisional power on every thing you do!
Because you have regularly been allowing her too, that's why!2

I realize that Mother may Know what is Best from the Rest but when it Comes to your own Choice... Use your own Voice and your own Discretion as a Mature Woman who has to be the One, hun, who Marries Someone who is Best for Her own Liking.
Go with mom's Flow for Now. Let her Babble on with her own Motherly Advice. But you Make it your Business to Leave her out of it, Asking her for her own Wise Advice when Needed Here, dear.
Hopefully you Live Alone on your Own.
Good Luck. xx1
