What do you wish you had asked / talked with your significant other about before you got hitched?

Marriage has always seemed like a rather massive decision to me, one of, if not the biggest decision an average person will ever make. Maybe I'm abnormal but I've always kind of been kind of skeptical of the way so many people just run into it because "that's just what people do."
I'm curious to find / compile a list of those things that would be most A) important and B) interesting for two people to discuss with each other before tying the knot. In a sense - what are the key factors that best help two people determine optimum compatibility in each other, in the marriage context.
Google leads to a lot of love-test / astrology / compatibility-quiz gobblety-gook, but perhaps I'm not thinking up the right search terms (also perhaps why I had trouble finding previous AskMes along this line). I am most interested in topics based on experience ("Why didn't I think to ask XYZ???") rather than speculation. Thanks!
