Single Snakes should have good luck embarking on long-distance relationships in the Year of the Metal Rabbit. This probably isn't the time to merge households, though. Conducting a relationship via the phone or Skype will prevent Snakes from rushing into serious commitments. This Year of the Rabbit is a good year to plant seeds for a future commitment, but Snakes should probably wait another year to harvest the fruits of their labors.
The Year of the Metal Rabbit will likely pose some challenges for Snakes that are in committed relationships. Work will be so engrossing that the Snake may neglect their partner. To avoid trouble, serpents should carve out time in their busy schedules for regular date nights.
