You naturally share a lot of respect for each other, and that allows you to continue to grow as individuals even as you form a strong union with one another. You honor the relationship with a deep sense of responsibility, even duty -- but that doesn't weigh down the fun, light connection between you, and it doesn't limit who your partner is as an individual human being. This relationship is, in part, about personal growth, and about inspiring your lover in that growth.
You're rather work- or career-oriented, and learn from your lover about how to let those things slide every now and again in order to make time for the more fun or romantic side of life. It's all about balance, after all; we should all learn to make time for not only our work, but ourselves, our lovers, our families, play time, relaxation time... Whew, that does sound like a lot of separate elements to balance! You two help one another do it. Your aims and goals in life are a focus for you as a team early on, and you're able to help one another in your journeys toward meeting those goals. You may decide to go into business or some other enterprise together; if so, this should work out well, because you trust one another and you have complementary strengths that come together to make an amazing unit.
