Do you have a college degree? Yes.
Are you in the career that you have a college degree in? Far from it....nope.
If not why? Because it just didn't work out for me to be a teacher. Budget cuts...not hiring many teachers. So now I work for the railroad.
If not did you ever use your college degree and if so for how long? Never!
Are you still paying on college debt? From now til forever.
Do you like your career? I fresking love it.
Do you make enough to support your family? Thank god yes! I make more than I would as a teacher. Which is sad!

yes i have a college degree.

no i dont use it, im a sahm. actually i've never used it. 

no, done paying on college debt. it wasn't very much. my parents didnt help at all and i had a few scholarships. so it was less than 10K and just recently paid it off (i've been out of school for 2yrs).

i like staying home with my boy and taking care of my family. 

i dont think i could make enough money to support my family (solely on my income).

I have an AAS in CRJ, almost a BS too. I am not currently working. I have been a sahm for 8 yrs or so, and am a military spouse who spent a number of years in Europe unable to use it. Yes I am still paying for it. I would love to have a career and HELP support my family, but hubs makes a good living now.

Yes I have a degree.

Not currently using it, but close.

Used it for 3 years, but left to support my family. This career pays more, but I am no longer FT due to family life.

And my MIL paid for my education, so no loans. (Actually FIL's paycheck paid for it, but MIL offered it up)
