duolingo pleaseeeeee specify that this is a "married" couple so that people don't get confused.

Is this only for married couples?

Like junhoon answered (and I know I'm tacking something on a year late), yes.

I didn't realize that when I was answering another question, and then was surprised to see that specifying that it's a married couple wasn't required here. Although, it was required in the other one.
