When the Cancer man and Cancer woman get together, the result is a water/water relationship which could either drown both of them or see them happily floating down their own private river into the sunset. The question is, which way will Cancer man Cancer woman compatibility go?
Cancer is a deeply emotional, sensitive and intuitive sign. For the Cancer man and Cancer woman, compatibility is instant in the sense that they know what it’s like to battle strong emotions, so they do have a great deal of empathy with each other.

It’s like looking at a reflection of themselves, so each partner understands the other on a very deep level, which has to be a good thing for Cancer man Cancer woman compatibility.
Family life will always be incredibly important for the Cancer man Cancer woman couple. They nurture each other, and they will nurture their children too. If for whatever reason they don’t have children, they will fill the house with pets or adopt children instead. It’s important that they do have a joint focus in their lives other than each other, otherwise Cancer man Cancer woman compatibility can suffer from too much mutual nurturing – you can have too much of a good thing, and if this couple wrap each other in too much cotton wool, neither will be able to breathe.

On a daily basis, both the Cancer man and the Cancer woman are very kind people, and they will do their utmost to look after each other. There could be a lot of looking after to do too, since both partners in this relationship are such worriers. They worry about everything, both real and imagined, and at great emotional cost. Somehow, however, it usually seems to work out that when one partner is feeling fragile, the other is feeling strong – and in this way, Cancer man Cancer woman compatibility manages to survive the darkest points.
Not always, however, Both the Cancer man and the Cancer woman are prone to dark moods and depression; if it happens that both are sinking at the same time, there is nobody to rescue either of them. When financial responsibilities, debt, career troubles or difficult family life overwhelm this couple jointly, they can rapidly fall apart, unable to reach each other, each in their own private misery. It’s very easy for this couple to drag each other down.
Fortunately, however, the Cancer man and Cancer woman are a cautious couple, and will usually have some solid plans in place to cover financial trouble and other practical matters. Water signs they may be, but both are shrewd people when it comes to protecting their security, their homes and their livelihoods.

When life is going well, this couple have a great deal going for them. With a shared outlook on life and a lot of mutual respect, plus kindness, romance and compassion, there’s little that can pull them apart.
