We already have the couples file created, and you can download that from your account: ZMCR*.ZIP.
This dataset has one record for every couple. It contains data for married or living together men and woman who both declared to be married (living together) to each other and with completed individual interviews (questionnaires). Essentially the file is the result of linking the male recode and the female recode data files, based on whom they both declared as partners. The unit of analysis (case) in this file is the couple.

Also, there are several discussions on the forum, re merging DHS datasets see the following link: amp;goto=2365&S=8121847911c49a4f9fd2a7730e60aaa3#msg_236 5
