You had a very passionate pairing -- and that was not always a good thing. You and your mate were constantly battling. Who's work was more important?
How should the house be kept? Which one of you should be the one to go get milk and bread? Each and every thing became a battleground. Of course, you knew you were not really fighting about the little things. What you were doing was wrestling for control. You were both powerful egotists, and it was almost inevitable that you clashed. But that didn't make your lives together any easier to bear.On the other hand, the friction did tend to keep things exciting. It was more fun for you to have a strong partner standing up to your towering will than to find a mate who would just knuckle under when you blustered and raged. So if you had wanted to stay together, you would have had to make your peace with the fact that you'd be The Couple Who Argued. Or, if you were determined to see calm win out, you would have had to start making changes yourself. Not egging your partner on, not giving snotty answers to simple questions, not demanding that everything be done your way. If you could have stopped pushing, your lover would have ceased pushing back. And that easy life you wanted could have been yours.
