Is a degree earned during the marriage a marital asset?

That's a very typical question a lot of people ask. And the professional degree itself is not a marital asset; it's the degree that is earned by the one party over the other. So, those are not necessarily valued. They don’t have a value in the sense to the marriage, but they are earned by the one spouse.
