It implies several possible things. First, no matter how fierce their clash, they are ultimately wed—they are a couple, paired natural forces, and so must get along in the end. Second, they are ruled by their passions. When those are spent, they return to accord. (They don't hold to reasoned positions.) Third, perhaps they are shallow. All it took was for them to get what they wanted (in Oberon's case), or to get distracted by a new fixation (in Titania's) and they forgot their great quarrel.
