It
involves selection of 2 men and 2 women first and then arrangements in between
the pairs.

To
select 2 men from the given 9 men ------ 9C2 ways

To select 2 women from the given 9 women excluding the two, who are
wives of already selected 2
men ------ 7C2 ways

After selecting M_{1}, M_{2}, W_{1} and W_{2}, the set of pairs may be

{(M_{1},W_{1})
and (M_{2},W_{2})} Or

{(M_{1},W_{2})
