A pair is a term used to describe a grouping of two people of things. A pair usually indicates that the two match or compliment each other in some way, though this is not required. For example, in a game of cards one might be required to select a pair of aces. While one card might be an ace of hearts and the other an ace of spades, both cards are still aces and thus would make a pair. A couple is another term that describes a pairing of two, however a couple can also be used to describe a romantic partnership between two people.
