“What He Wants From a Relationship” excerpted from “The AstroTwins’ Love Zodiac: The Essential Astrology Guide for Women.”
The Capricorn man wants a relationship that’s built to last. He’ll take pains to make sure you’re a solid bet, and the evaluation process could be lengthy. He prefers to meet people through trusted sources like family or friends, or at a comfortable hangout where he doesn’t feel awkward and out of place. To Capricorn, relationships are obligations he takes very seriously. He doesn’t commit to anyone unless he knows he can give it his all. Sure, he may go through the boyfriend motions, but he’ll usually back out before it goes too far.
What’s the big deal, you may wonder. Don’t those vows include “for better and for worse”? Besides, you’re a modern woman who doesn’t care if she out-earns her man. It’s all about love. Superwoman doesn’t need Superman. It’s OK if he’s Clark Kent or even a male Lois Lane.
Not gonna happen. The Capricorn man’s worst nightmare goes something like this: You arrive at a party with your Capricorn hubby, Rob, and the hostess steers you into the living room for introductions. “Everyone, this is Amy. She’s an amazing trial lawyer who’s just made partner at her firm, and she’s running for city council! Oh, and this is her husband, Rob. He’s been working odd jobs for the last 10 years, while dreaming up how to make his millions. Amy pays the mortgage in the meanwhile, but we know that’s just a short-term thing right? Everyone, say hello to Amy and Rob!”
The Goat is stubborn. Many Capricorn men wait until well into their forties to settle down. He won’t marry (or at least, won’t marry permanently) until he’s reached a few of his major milestones: traveling Latin America, becoming a board-certified surgeon, selling his first business. A firm footing on his chosen life path gives him the confidence to commit.
