You don't get 5 points just for being in a couple - the main applicant will get 5 points if their partner has certain skills.

See it explained here (it's the same for the 175 and 176):
Skilled – Independent (Migrant) Visa (Subclass 175)
To get 5 points:
You can claim 'partner skills' points if your partner is also able to satisfy the basic requirements of age, English language ability, has nominated an occupation on the same Skilled Occupation List (SOL) as the primary applicant for which they have obtained a suitable skills assessment from the relevant assessing authority and they meet the Australian study requirement or have recent work experience in a skilled occupation which is on the SOL as the primary applicant.
- you don't have to have the same occupation, but both of your occupations must be on the same list
