This can suit them both fine, but if there are issues, they might have a hard time ironing things out as time goes by.

Capricorn can tire of Virgo’s fixation on details. Being a Cardinal (leadership) sign, Capricorn likes to focus on the grand scheme of life. Virgo, a detail-oriented Mutable sign, has a tendency to get lost in life’s minutia and lose sight of the big picture.
