Eriro is totally right about the housework thing. Also on the housework topic, here's my advice: Stand your ground on making sure the housework is shared evenly because whatever jobs you fall into the routine of doing during that first year of marriage, they're likely to be the jobs you'll be doing forever... with a few exceptions of course. I've been married 11 years and I took on the responsibility of laundry right away. Now that we have two kids it would be nice to have help with the laundry and I'm making headway on getting his assistance, but my daughter's 9 years old, so you can see that it is not easy to change the routines you get into during that first year of marriage. On the plus side, I've never mowed a lawn because my husband always does that job.
