Are you about to tie the knot? Want to make sure your marriage goes the distance? Diving into marriage is a big deal, and you should make sure you're ready. What's the biggest mistake couples make before they get married... and what's the best advice for avoiding it?

YourTango Experts Jasbina Ahluwalia, Ellen Whitehurst, Abby Rodman and Maya Ezratti sat down with YourTango Experts Senior VP Melanie Gorman to tackle the issue of what really gives a relationship the strength to make it until "happily ever after." One mistake couples tend to make is not knowing everything about their partner. Before you decide to spend the rest of your life with someone you should know everything about them. You two have to decide who is playing which role, how much each other make, and so much more. This conversation must happen in order to truly figure out the basis of your marriage. You do not want to walk down the aisle and think to yourself, “wow I really do not know this guy at all.” 

Check out the video above to learn what questions you should be asking about your partner — and yourself — to avoid heartbreak and divorce.
