SQL SERVER 2012 ON A DOMAIN CONTROLLER

Guys,
Im playing around with sql server 2012....... I have two servers that are DC...... why I have two? I wanted to have a second DC in case the first one fails or goes down. In one of these DCs I have Exchange server 2010 installed. I know that I should not have Exchange on a DC!!! Well, now I would like to install SQL Server on the other DC........ I don't have a third server and I dont have the resources to get another one that is why Im thinking about installing it in the DC. I know that I should not install it on DC as well.....
My question is...... what are the issues of having Exchange and SQL severs installed on a Domain Controller? What problems might cause having them installed on a DC? Do these issues come out right away or are something that affects in the future?

Like always THANKS!!
