Anything to know when keeping honey gouramis in pairs?

I'm considering another 20 gallon with a pair of honey gouramis. I don't plan on getting any fry, so I would probably avoid a male and female combination. I consider adding two females. Would this be okay?

I would think 2 females would be okay.
Any eggs that are lucky enough to hatch would be eaten right away by the parents and/or other fish anyway so if you did end up with a male/female pair, you won't have to worry about your tank getting overpopulated.

I kept a male/female pair and they never bred.
