Re: s/o College and employment
I have a bachelor's degree in political science and will have a master's degree in public administration in August. DH dropped out of a four-year college. He is currently enrolled at a community college and will earn an associate's degree in business technology.
We're self sufficient. I'm the primary wage earner. My salary is about 1K per month higher than his.
None of the jobs he has ever pursued required a degree, but we do expect him to get a small salary boost when he gets his degree. Since I graduated from college, every job I have pursued in my field has required at least a bachelor's degree, and it's becoming more common for applicants to have master's degrees.
