You may have a relationship which is unique and not the usual date, engaged, marriage, offspring, house, more offspring etc. relationship. You may be so devoted to your careers and enjoy them so much that having offspring may be delayed or not planned for at all in the near future.

You may have difficulty occasionally living together because of cramped space, different tastes in music, décor, and one being messier than the other.
You may have to “work” at a good relationship once in a while by having to suppress anger, jealousy, and pessimism.
