An English speaker would simply say "They are husband and wife"
English given is incorrect
They are a couple, husband and wife. Or A couple is a husband and a wife.
In everyday speech does one always include "pasangan," or would it be okay to say "Mereka adalah suami dan istri?"
"Mereka adalah suami dan istri" or "Mereka adalah suami istri"
Mereka adalah suami dan istri
The English sentence structure doesn’t sound right. It’s ok to say “a couple of things” but not “a couple of husband and wife”.
Bad English sentence.
The English should be "They are a couple, husband and wife."
Saying "they are a couple of husband and wife" implies two husbands and one wife.
English translation is incorrect - 'this couple is husband and wife' would make more sense
The english in Duolingo is often terrible and structurally wrong.
Duolingo, kindly fix the translation. Thanks.
Or "They are a husband and wife couple."
This english sentence is ridicolous
As has been noted before, English is incorrect.
More appropriate is:
They are a married couple.
They are husband and wife.
Absolutely terrible English. Why didn't a native speaker proofread the app?
They are spouses, husband and wife?
The translation here shows "They are a couple of husband and wife.", but the correct answer shown on the previous screen was "They are couple of husband and wife."
I hope "They are husband and wife." will be correct, too.
"Of" is an extraneous preposition here.
"They are a couple, husband and wife." is a better translation
This doesnt make any sense
Doesnt translate well into english this one. How is this said in another way in indonesian?
There are a lot of alternative translations in these comments but I think the best is:
"They are a husband and wife couple."
This matches the Indonesian sentence well because in the original sentence, "suami dan istri" can act as an adjective modifying "pasangan".
"They are a couple, husband and wife"??? In other words, they're together but also married. Is that an acceptable gloss?
It could be said this way in English to show they were a couple composed of a husband and wife and not composed of 2 wives or 2 husbands
Soni dan Cer?
