The major thing is expectations. Be keenly aware of both of your expectations for how you want your life to be. Kids, money, jobs, education, houses, cars, sex, vacations, etc etc etc. What are your expectations for them, what are his expectations for them? Talk about all of them before hand so you're not surprised by anything later.1

a marriage is awesome because you have someone there for you all the time, to listen to you, to help you, to support you. you don't have to worry about someone ever loving you because you have that person. But marriage can be very difficult. You are no longer "All about me" and it's now "all about us" and many decisions have to be on the same page.
When getting married, it's very important to fix your financial situations, and plan out your financial goals together. Being an independent adult is expensive-all the bills, medical care, car payments, insurance, plus saving up, investments, etc. Not to mention if kids come along. Many, many marriages end because of financial disagreements and lack of responsibility to maintain a steady financial budget and plan.
When you live with someone for a long time, you start griping about flaws they have (too lazy, too ocd-ish, etc.) you always need to reach a compromise.
Also, never stop dating each other. Never let the "flame" die, even though it may get stressful but create memorable moments.1
