they could be mating. you have to watch to see if there is any nipping going on (if there is be very carefull). the male will chase the female around the tank for a few hours either after building a bubble nest or just before. She will then hover below the nest site and wait for the nest to be built or to be completed. The male gouramI then chases her breifly and she nudges him on the side to indicate that shes ready.

are they still chasing one another etc? if so, do you see any marks on either of them?

I think their feelers help them to 'recognize' other gouramis, I find that they can also sense other fish in the tank with their feelers.
