Coupled fixed point theorems for a map satisfying mixed monotone property and a nonlinear, rational type contractive condition are established in a partially ordered -metric space. The conditions for uniqueness of the coupled fixed point are discussed. We also present results for the existence of coupled coincidence points of two maps.
