It's been tried in canon (before either of them put on costumes) and didn't work out between them as a couple. This was mentioned a lot whenever they saw eachother for the first few years after 52.

... dude, that's what makes it a hot ship. The on-and-off, can't live with her, can't live without her thing.

Well, I guess, but I just see it as one of those relationships that doesn't work out but the two people still remain friends. Sort of like Babs and Dick, but then again people still slash them.

(They are both my absolute favorite comic book characters of all time, but I don't like them together. They tried it, it didn't work, time to move on)

but... okay, as I say, I liked them because of of the angst/on and off factor; but in theory I don't see why they couldn't give it a try. Yeah, they tried it and it didn't work then, but they were both in very different places at the time. Kate didn't know what to do with her life, and was basically aimless and a little bit self-destructive. Renée was focussed on being a by the book cop then, and very much closeted.
Since then Kate has found what she wants to do and be; and Renée has gone through hell and her own period of aimlessness and self-destruction and gone back to the other side as a stronger and more grounded person. They probably have much more in common now, as two superheros, than they did then. They're still both very bullheaded in ways that lend itself to lots of arguments and difficulties finding a good balance, but there's no reason it should be unworkable obstacles. No reason it should be a sure thing, either; but definitely of the 'worth giving it a try' realm, especially given how much they still love one another after that many years without even seeing one another.

I've known several couples IRL who couldn't stay together and couldn't stay apart.
