As long as she has a decent stable job I really don't care, if she had a degree or not, I know plenty of people who no college degree's that are among the smartest people and nicest people I know. I mean my father is a master oil painter who is self taught and puts artists with arts degree's and art professors to shame. So it's not like your not smart if you don't have one *shrugs*
That being said I certainly wouldn't mind if she does have a degree because it would mean more money and knowledge, etc, etc. But it's not going to be a deal breaker if she doesn't have one. Personally I am getting one from one of the best schools in the world for professions training for my career but that's were it stops for me since I financed my own education, and I don't plan on starting my life financially wiped out by student loans.
I'll continue to learn, educate and better myself but not by wasting thousands, upon thousands of dollars for fields I have no desire to be in, instead I'll put that money into a house, my retirement etc, etc.

I don't think it's necessary at all. I don't think someone has to have a degree in order to be successful. I will be getting my degree in May but I wouldn't require my partner to have a degree. There are other things that I think are more important. As long as he has a job and is hard working, it doesn't matter to me if he has a piece of paper from a University or not.
