Well, to be honest, your love compatibility index is not high. Your relationship cannot be everlasting, for you will suffer from a series of disagreement and conflicts. May you both feel suppressed in marriage life.

Rabbit here who married a Snake. We had problems from the beginning and are now divorced. He never agreed on anything and he wasn't always honest with me. :( If you have disagreements now, then it will not get better in the future.
