"completed or unfinished higher education"; "completed or unfinished secondary education"

I'm translating a piece of sociological research into English (not my native tongue). It's about family life and education, and categorizes spouses according to their educational level.

So do these phrases sound OK:
"husbands who have completed or unfinished secondary education" (high school, in other words);
"Wives who have completed or unginished higher education" (uni level, in other words)?
("Completed" in these phrases is not a verb in past tense but an adjective.)

"Husbands with completed or unfinished secondary education share their household duties with wives less often than husbands with completed or unfinished higher education." Just an example.
