Is it important that your spouse/partner has the same level of education as you? Exceeds your level of education? What expectations do you have for your children? Is this even an important issue these days?
For many years, matching the level of education was always a top priority. I always imagined side-by-side matching college diplomas hanging on the wall together. Hubby and I met in college in 1993. I graduated, he did not. I went on with my Master's Degree + 15 credits beyond. Hubby probably has a good 50-60 salvageable credits. I always wanted him to finish and at least earn his Bachelor's Degree. Maybe one day, but honestly a college degree would be useless for him now in his career. For my son, I do expect him to at least attempt college. It is my hope that he completes his degree, but I also have to be realistic to other career paths he may chose like culinary or automotives. If he choses that type of vocational path, I'd still llike him to pursue a Business degree.
How about the rest of you?
