Divided Tank Question

As many of you know, I am not a big fan of divided tanks. With that said, however, I am in a spot where I am going to have to use a divided 10 gal. for a while (I already have a divider).

Now, my question is - is it less stressful to have a male and female in the divided tank or two males in it?

Thanks!

I've heard the female can sense his pheromones, so may be best to keep same genders.

My gf has a divided 5 gal with two males and they get along fine. The occasional flare but neither of them get stressed and eat well. They do have fake plants on either side so if they wanted to get away from the other they can hide behind.

Most of the time males together are fine, but it can result in them being stressed and biting their fins off in frustration. A female will make him flirtatious and not as stressed so that's a plus. But really, I don't think it matters. Just make sure the divider is secure and they can't escape to one another's sides.
