Polarity in a relationship is the engine that makes it move. Masculine energy conquers and cogitates — it likes to do things. Feminine energy nurtures and verbalizes — it likes to talk and to feel. That’s why feminine energy is the receiver of masculine energy. It’s why men typically make the first move in a relationship and why the man proposes to the woman rather than the other way around. The male acts, and the female responds.
When the roles are reversed, everything falls apart. Yes, most couples today are malleable when it comes to work and family matters—some overlap is inevitable and even good. But the more men and women move away from their masculine and feminine cores, the harder or the more impossible it will be to make the relationship work.
