Rat + Tiger
People born in the Year of the Rat and those born in the Year of the Tiger have the unfortunate tendency to indulge themselves in laziness and frivolity.

A marriage (or a business partnership) is not the best idea to consider by the first and the third signs of the Chinese Zodiac. A friendship between these two companions should suffice, however costly it could become when the Rat and the Tiger decide to go partying together.
Rat + Rabbit
People born in the Year of the Rat and those born in the Year of the Rabbit (Cat) are not the ideal candidates for love and friendship.
Rats and Rabbits are both gifted with great intelligence and ambition, but they have an opposite vision on the means to achieve their goals.

Rat + Goat
The Rat and the Goat (Sheep) are not an ideal match.
The Rat and the Goat have different points of view on the most important matters of life. They have radically different personal lifestyles, which prevents them from feeling totally at peace in a shared environment. For instance, finances being a very important matter to Rats, they will always take great care in order to earn and save money for harder times. Goats, on the other hand, are very generous when they have the opportunity, and they also have an unfortunate tendency to spend at will if nobody stops them. The Rat generally finds the Goat too whimsical and immature for his taste, while the Goat doesn't like the stinginess of the Rat. In summary, between the Rat and the Goat, this is more of a mutual misunderstanding than a true and irreducible incompatibility.

As a couple, they're an ideal combination, as they manage perfectly well to combine their love and their care for each other. Their children are in good hands and can be assured of a serene and productive education at the side of such parents.
Rat + Pig
