In brief: Almost never
However, it is several days of misery, and if you are pregnant, it is likely that your unborn child will end up blind and/or deaf and/or seriously deformed and/or mentally handicapped.
Before immunization, when one girl in a community came down with "german measles", all the other girls would be invited to a slumber party with her in hopes they'd catch it and thus be immune.

In brief: If you are a fetus
Except for disease in a fetus acquired from the mother in the first trimester of pregnancy, rubella is a mild disease without any serious issues.
