Compatibility with Pigs
Out of all the signs of the Chinese zodiac, the Pig and Goat make one of the happiest possible combinations in love. However, most marriages between a Dragon and Pig last for a really long time. Pigs that get together in a relationship make exceptional mates. When they get together with a Rabbit, the relationship is rather compatible and they will enjoy a loving union with one another. A Pig and a Rat together make a great couple, while the admiration between the Pig and Monkey also creates a decent relationship.
With patience, the Pig can become a good mate for a Rooster and the two may enjoy a prosperous relationship. The Horse sign (as well as the Ox on some levels) also has the potential to create a decent union with the Pig. Despite being very different from one another, the Tiger and Pig can make a relationship work. Out of all the signs, it's very hard for the Pig to make a Snake happy.
