Reference information: Your suggestion "mutually complementary" is right in this context.
Men and women are mutually complementary, but this does not mean that they are mutually exclusive except for the purely physical dimension of human life. This is very clearly experienced in the body language of nuptial love. The male's inclination is to love in order to allow himself to be loved. The female's inclination is to allow herself to be loved in order to love in return. http://www.iol.ie/~duacon/l961004.htm
