Why does my mom want me to marry a doctor?

Anonymous
I'm 19 and I'm stressed. I'm Nigerian and my mom keeps saying how I have to marry a doctor because she doesn't want me to struggle. I'm a nursing major and plan to be a practitioner. I'm currently seeing this guy (for the last six months) who's study is criminal justice. She's been against our relationship since the beginning. She keeps saying how she'll bring a doctor from Nigeria if it gets to that point. I just keep quiet for now because I don't want to argue, plus I'm not focused on marriage right now. I've been seeing this guy privately and I enjoy my time with him. I don't know what to do.
