    Default Does the sentence sound natural?

    Both love and career have been made perfectly.

    It refers to that "Both love and career are successful".

    I fear "love...made" would sound like "make love" and cause misunderstanding.

    No, the sentence doesn't sound right, NH. Are you trying to say that both love and career both go very well?

    How about: Both love and career seem to go hand in hand perfectly.

    or perhaps:

    There is a perfect balance between love and career.

    Forgot to mention, though, NH, that it's not a sentence but still sounds nice if it's used as a title or maybe a thought added at the end of a sentence ( there is no verb here as you probably know).
