I think money is the big one!  That is what most people fight about and we all handle it differently.

 We were best friends before we started dating so we talked about anything and everything. I knew his stance on kids, money, working, religion, politics, etc. We're highly compatible.

I think knowing each other for a longer period of time. We new each other for a coupkle years before getting married! Communicating and seeing each other in different circumstances through out the year helps!

We discussed a lot of things, esp about finances and kids. Also, how our families would blend, as we were very different!!

We talked about children for sure. That was important to me.

Glad they fixed the video. All pretty good points, but the thing I wish we had talked more about was household responsibilities and discipline styles with kids.

All pretty good

My DH and I met online and lived in different countries, so all we did was chat online and have a phone call every now and then.  We both asked a lot of questions about family and what did we want for the future, did we want kids right away, where will we live, what do we expect from one another etc...Still, there were surprises LOL.  I loved his answers that he gave me, and was impressed with his confidence but that wasn't quite how it turned out.  And same goes for him too.  Marriage is really hard.
