Husband lied about college degree

My husband has been lying all these years about a college degree. This year he’s working on being truthful and honest about everything. He told me last night that he stayed in college until he was 25 and left cause he wasn’t applying himself. So he decided to go work when he realize he wasting his time. All the time he’s been making it seem like he graduated. I would have married him regardless but why not be truthful about it.
