This pair doesn't seem right - they aren't really opposites. I think I'd go for Conflict and Co-operation which in Orlanthi terms would be Orlanth and Ernalda although I wouldn't label them male and female. Aternatively you might prefer Love and Hate or even Love and Indifference.

Haven't any ideas on the rest - they seem pretty straight forward. So I'm probably missing something deep.
