There are many things which need to be discussed including what you've already mentioned above. Also you need to discuss where you're going to live, if it's together as a couple, with in-laws, sharing a house with other people until you can afford a place of your own. If both parties have a home already, you need to discuss which home it would be more practical to live in for you both. You need to talk about when you want to have children, e.g. within the first year of marriage, 2 or 3 years or more. You should discuss how MANY children you want. Imagine marrying someone thinking you want 1 child and they want 4! A bit of a difference there don't you think!? Just some of the areas you need to consider, I'm sure there are many more which don't come to my mind right at this moment :)
