This is an interesting sentence. The first meaning that comes to mind would be when referring to a mechanical engineering principle. An independent couple would be two parallel forces of equal magnitude acting in opposition, but isolated from other forces. If referring to people it is more complicated. The only way you could use the sentence shown above (It is an independent couple) would be, for example: 'It is an independent couple who has the best chance of winning this competion.' We can say: 'Where is the couple you were telling me about?' BUT 'They are an independent couple'. I wonder what the author of this sentence had in mind...

C'est un couple libre. / It is a free couple.

Je ne sais pas si un "couple indépendant" a vraiment le même sens.

En anglais, on dit: "Ils sont un couple indépendant". Les noms collectifs sont difficiles.

Avec un peu d'imagination ou peut envisager un couple indépendant financièrement, qui n'a pas besoin d'aide des parents. Les exemples de DUOLINGO sont toujours assez étranges.

"They are" an independent couple not "it is".

C'est un danseur = He's a dancer. C'est une chanteuse = She's a singer. C'est un couple indépendant = They are an independent couple. On ne dit pas en anglais "It is a couple." On dit "They are a couple." La traduction par DL est fausse.

Bonjour Thomas. C'est inhabituel mais possible. Considérons cette phrase: It is a brave and independent couple who would make such a bold decision. Don.
