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. 

Sounds to me like you made the right decision, but not necessarily because of the school thing.  If there are cracks of any kind in the relationship during the engagement, things are only going to get worse 5, 10, or 15 years down the road, and especially after having kids.  I have two kids and they are wonderful, but they definitely put more pressure on the parents' relationship.  Ideally, you want to make sure you are in a stable and trouble-free relationship before bringing kids into the mix.... Just my 2 cents.

Law School Applications / Scholarship stipend amounts?

Just curious about what people are being offered by different schools for stipend amounts.  It seems that some schools offer much more generous stipends than others.

So just out of curiosity, how much is the stipend?  I always see posts about various law school scholarships offering stipends but I wonder how much the stipends are.

Personal Statement / Passive verbs in PS, DS, optional essays

What's the guideline or rule on passive verbs in these essays?  I remember that the English teachers in UG always preached the importance of action verbs for strong writing - NO PASSIVE VERBS.  Just wondering what the opinion of the board is on this.
