| | The couple has arrived
My wife just asked me which is correct,
'The couple has arrived' or
'The couple have arrived'.
Now, do you consider a couple as two people, so use a plural verb or do you consider the couple as a single noun and so use the third person?
This goes for sports teams too. I usually say 'Juventus are rubbish', ie using the plural verb. But technically Juventus is a single team.
