Low arcan Ace of Cups and high arcan Lovers combination - start of a new relationship (also when order is reversed)
Ace of Cups tarot card

Card 1 - Ace of Cups

In the Ace of Cups card, there is a hand emanating from the clouds holding out a cup, as if in a offer to the querent to take a drink. This cup is overflowing with sparkling water which symbolizes pure and pristine emotion. If you take this offer, drinking from this cup will surely bring you nothing short of emotional as well as spiritual fulfillment.  The cup has five streams of water overflowing from the brim. These five streams represent the power of intuition and show the importance of listening to your inner voice. In order to obtain the kind of emotional or spiritual fulfillment that is depicted in the Ace of Cups, the querent will need to follow this inner voice, and remain true to it, regardless of the situation. This will require emotional discipline, but the rewards that this can bring are hinted at within the card itself: overflowing joy and happiness.

Ace of Cups combinations
Many combinations in connection with relationships and quite easy to link but, as with all combinations, read in context with surrounding cards. When showing the beginning of married life the Ace of Cups would be part of marriage card combinations to support it, similarly, birth may be surrounded by other cards representing family, etc. The combinations shown below only offer a small sample of possibilities, as this is quite an easy card to work with.

Lovers tarot card

Card 2 - Lovers

In the Lovers card, the man and the woman in the image are being protected and blessed by an angel above. The couple seems secure and happy in their home, which appears to be the Garden of Eden. The fruit tree with the snake behind the woman is a reference to that story, which tells of humanity's fall into temptation and into the realm of flesh and sensuality. The angel depicted here is Raphael, the angel of air - who is of the same element of the zodiac sign that governs this card: Gemini. Air is associated with mental activity, and communication in particular, which is the foundation for healthy relationships. His blessing seems to give this card a sense of balance and harmony, the symbolization of union in a grand and cosmic sense between two opposing forces. 

Associations:

Similar or supporting cards:
Relationship cards are relevant, also when in combination with marriage/commitment cards (see full explanation under The Hierophant) Two of Cups (close loving union).

Opposing or contradictory cards:
The Hermit usually signifies a sense of aloneness. For some the Nine of Pentacles also indicates this, although it can represent financial independence or an independent person, rather than being alone. 

Lovers combinations
For a love triangle I’d normally look for secrecy cards in close proximity, plus the addition of a King or Queen Court card (outside the couple in question) may also point to third party involvement, although it can sometimes be outside interference, not always an actual affair etc. The Lovers is an easy card to apply to combinations; try using “love relationship” in application to cards before or after, for instance: Ace of Cups to Lovers would show the start of a new relationship, for a married couple it may show a new beginning that brings happiness to the relationship. As you would expect, lots of Cups combinations…
